Gallatin Gun Club Range

Recommended Posts

As some of you have heard, Gallatin Gun has meet stout resistance every place we have tried to build a range. We have found an ideal location for a range, but again the Facebook crowd has gotten the locals fired up. The usually lies and misinformation. We will have the first planning commission hearing Tuesday September 26th the local office in Gallatin TN. Location is 355 N.Belvedere Dr. in Gallatin Tennessee.  Starts at 5:00PM. Their are a few very vocal persons that will be attending against this range. I am calling out current members and anyone who would like to be a member of the Gallatin Gun Club for support of this range. You should live in Sumner county, however other locals will be welcome. We are not looking for a fight, just calm and collected persons, dressed well to be present as support. If you have a short fuse, you may not want to come, These folks can really get your blood pressure up.

Also if you live in Sumner County, call your local officials in support of the range plan.


Thank you for your support

Well. I am back from the lets just listen to one side planning commission. I sat through and listen to several tell their lies and half truths. Even one guy that bragged owning an AR-15 and how much fun it was to cut trees down with it in his back field, then explained  how we just cannot have a Gun Range here, where would the bullets go and all that lead, the guy that has a trap range on his lot but having a Professional built range in the area with safety officers is just out of the question. One lady admitted to being an NRA member. or my kids just would not be safe.... or the poor Deer's we hunt.

We are thinking about going to the full board and by passing this local group. They had no interest in hearing our response on the issues. We have 500 members needing a range with over 400 on the wait list. I cannot see 12 locals overriding this if we can satisfy all the requirements.


End of Rant.   for now.

The land around Gallatin has gotten pretty valuable and my thoughts are it will need to be located way out in the County and far from city hall. Regardless it's going to require a considerable investment and the insurance premiums will be costly.
