HR 3065 – Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act

Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC-11) has introduced the House version of Sen. Mark Udall’s S. 1249 – Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act. Both bills seek to reallocate Pittman-Robinson Wildlife Restoration Act monies towards the development of shooting and archery ranges on both Federal and non-Federal lands.

The act says that the Federal portion used for construction or expansion can be up to 75% of the total cost. Moreover, for land acquisition to be used for a range or its expansion, the Federal share can be up to 90% of the total.

The bill currently has 52 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisles.

I initially missed this bill because it was introduced on September 23rd which was the first day of the Gun Rights Policy Conference. Now that I see it, I encourage everyone to contact their Congressman or Congresswoman to become a co-sponsor. If they are already a co-sponsor, make that a thank-you note!
