Rifle Tube Update

Rifle Tube Update from reopening on July 23, 2016 –  January 31, 2017

Different caliber/types recorded as fired: 99
Rounds recorded as fired: 22,597

Grains of projectiles recorded as fired:        2,071,637
Pounds of projectiles recorded as fired:      295.95     (Average of approximately 47.5 pounds per month. Add approx. 15% for non recorded shots = approx. 52 pounds per month.

Next best guess at a scheduled clean out of the backstop at approximately
2500 pounds of projectiles in the backstop would be in the Spring of 2020)

Air Filters changed 10 times.

Camera antenna hit twice, cut the cable.
Camera Power cable hit and cut once
Target holder sticks shot 3 time each
Both Chrono Light mounts hit at least twice

There is an update to the Bullseye Camera Target Manager Software. Be sure to update the one on your phone as it allows you to record screen shots of the targets at each round.

House Committee “Kills” Magazine Bill

Yesterday, the House State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee considered House Bill 1097, legislation to repeal the 2013 anti-self-defense law that limits the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.  Unfortunately, the House committee voted on a party-line vote to defeat the bill and continue to prevent law-abiding Coloradans from being able to effectively defend themselves and their loved ones.

Magazine Limit Repeal Bill Approved by Senate Committee

On January 31, the Senate State, Veterans, & Military Affairs Committee approved Senate Bill 7 by a 3-2 vote (Yes: Marble, Neville, and Scott – No: Court and Fenberg).  Thank you to Senator Vicki Marble for sponsoring Senate Bill 7.  SB 7 would repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold, now heads to the Senate floor where it will await a vote by the full chamber.

Please continue to contact your state Senator and state Representative and politely urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.


SB 7 would remove this restriction so that law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.  Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Senator and state Representative, and politely urge them to support Senate Bill 7 when it comes up for a vote.
