    This comes up every year or so.
    Has there been any movement on any of the rumored or proposed Public gun ranges in Calvert County ??
    I believe Calvert is the ONLY county in MD without a public or private(membership) gun range.

    J2 was looking to open one down in Prince Frederick. I heard that the location fell through so they were starting over looking for a new location. 100% hearsay, so we'll see if others with more direct knowledge weigh in.

    J2 is currently looking at another location. Not sure the status on it as I haven’t talked to John about it lately. The original location turned into a no go! I believe the results of the election may have a lot to do with their plans!

    You wouldn't believe the hoops J2 has had to jump through to get to this point. It's crazy! They have lost 2 sites that I know of to date and the 3rd one which is super nice and the plan they have for it is going to be awesome if they can get everything approved. Time will tell! I wish John and everyone at J2 nothing but the best of luck and I hope and Pray they can get this done!

    Why would we EVER want want that? Sorry but your on a gun forum and you want to make sure that NO ONE other than you can have a range in the ENTIRE county? Why not push for a ban on shooting on private property as well?

    I think you misunderstand. I believe he's saying that if the board took up anything anti 2A they would get dog piled by concerned citizens so quick we could probably expect not just a reversal, but their full support in the opposite direction. That's how I took it anyways. 4 out 5 of them seem solidly 2A.

    I believe there was a member here years ago that was trying to get one started at the landfill in lusby. If I remember correctly he had all of the engineering and studies done the county asked for and jumped through all of the hoops for a few years. They finally told him no and then opened a range for the police on that site using much of his homework for their range.

    There is also a range at the Power Plant, that has been used by LEOs too.

    Better late than never I guess.
    I was absolutely saying. a” Ban “ would lead to such public outcry. It would pave an easy road for a public range. In the county.
    I’m not about limiting anything.
    Nor do I have any interest in picking a fight
    Virtually or otherwise.
    I’m not “ from Calvert “ only been down here 20 years.
    But I have noticed nothing gets my neighbors more fired up then telling them they CANT
