A Rifle Range shooting over a Busy Highway? Check it Out.

In Switzerland of all places.

I think the cars are protested by some type of berm. They mentioned that the shooter can't see the highway. But looking at the distance, it wont stop an round from dropping in...

But things would have to be JUST right for it to clear the berm and drop into the space.

And if that happened, it would not be traveling at a high velocity.

Great! Both stationary AND moving targets! I’d pay for that.

I pity the poor slob who draws the short straw. He has to schlepp across a highway, then climb a lot of stairs change out the targets. Which look pretty big and clumsy.

A knuckle-balling 7.62 through your side window ain't nothin' to sneeze at.

Looks like prone only as from the camera angle you can see the road.

Maybe it works because Swiss shooters are disciplined and follow directions ?

And at Myrtle Grove we can't keep people from shooting the pillars out from under the baffles :-(
