The roof and the extra space behind the firing line is a welcome addition though.
Does anyone actually police their brass though? It would be nice if everyone did, but I have never seen anyone do so. They really need a Range Safety Officer to occasionally come by for the knuckle heads that keep doing dumb stuff. I dont know why people dont say something to the dumbasses that keep doing dumb shit. Oh yeah they have a gun in their hands. Most people do respect a uniform even if they have little to no power, but to kick you off the most reasonable price range in the area. IMO!

You assume logic and good practices.

I police as much of my brass as I can every time I go, and most others I have seen there regularly do as well. Though many dont.
Even pick up others brass they left behind near the table I am at, collect it all up and sell the brass to a recycler or give to friends who reload.

Some more updated pictures, poor angle again.

New tables on the concrete which has been recapped. (I think, I doubt it was broken out and repoured)
The new tables look a good bit smaller than the old tables and now have a movable seat. More room behind the benches/firing line which is a good thing. Unless they build more seats, gonna have to bring some folding chairs for other people with you.

The fence and trellis look to be a kind of "in your face baffle" and are probably intended to keep your muzzle down and prevent firing on targets in adjacent lanes. NO signs of any kind of roof over the shooting area, all the downrange baffles look almost complete as well. The gravel in front of the firing line is going to make brass cleanup of anything that flies forward of the line a PITA.

These pics are as of July 11th 2019.

Bunch of security/trail cams up all over the place as well, they really dont want people getting a close look it seems.

Click for larger versions as usual.

The collection box pic is a nice touch. Glad to see others can't wait till Myrtle Grove opens back up.

Thanks for the photos. I cannot wait to see the improvements.

I suspect the "in your face baffle" is designed to keep people shooting straight and in their own lane. I have seen a lot of people setting their target at short range and end up shooting slightly diagonal. The bullets can impact the posts down near 100 yards.

I believe its August 21st, might be August 20th. (edit: August 20th. http://dnr.maryland.gov/wildlife/Pag...rtlegrove.aspx)
Went by there again today while out working, does not look any different than it did when I last looked on July 11th, benches in the same places/etc. Hopefully working downrange on the baffles, but maybe took a few weeks off.

No signs of anything happening on the archery side or fencing that I can see, too many trees/too much underbrush to see the shotgun area from the parking lot.
