3-31-2020 Shooting Range Closed Update:

“We took the Homeland Security memo into consideration and will still need to follow the Governor’s recommendation for non-essential businesses to remain closed until the 17th.Shooting Range Closed #theresponse to covid-19
… a few of the main points on why we are following the Governor’s timeline in regards to the range closure:
In short, the [DHS] memo is advisory. The section about ranges being open pertains to law enforcement, public safety, and first responders, not recreational, commercial business or club members. Under the federal memo opening the range for discretionary use is not advised, and that use is not within the scope of the Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Other First Responders category in the federal memo.
We do not believe that we have any choice but to follow the state order, as defined by the [Wyoming] Game & Fish, as the federal memo describes the state as the decision-making authority.”
