Sign reads "American Heritage Gun Range" coming soon! Just saw it tonight! I can walk to it in less than 5 minutes! I am pumped! It is a huge facility so I hope they will have a rifle range.

I noticed the Stockbridge Army/Navy store has a big sign out front "shooting range coming soon" I wonder if there is a connection?

Ok this is the info fed to me today. The old owner of the pawn shop on the Mcdonough square sold it to a group of investors and the same investors are the one that bought the old 84 lumber bldg and they are the ones opening the gun range in it. Right now a pistol (25 yrd) range is going up first then rifle ranges are coming 2nd if the shop is a success. RUMOR has it they also bought ten acres on hwy 81/20 across 75 (racetrack side of 81/20)and are applying to put another rifle and big gun only range on that ten acres.

Buck Nasty, I was told George was the old owner and sold it to a group of investors and now he is just a manager at the "On the square pawn". I want you all to know that this is all here say and I am just letting you guys know what I hear. Some of these people are LEO and some are Mcdonough employees. So please do not quote me or get upset at me if you find out other info. Just thought it would be good news to have a new gun range in town and wanted to share with all gun/hunting enthusiasts.
