Just to be clear, I am NOT pooping in this thread. I think it's a great idea and good for some PR. Remember my earlier post about the old Motorola Rifle & Pistol Club doing work on the NG Ranges at 52nd Street? We (a bunch of ASRPA members) did the same thing 2 years ago at BASF when the decision was made to move the CMP Western Games / Creedmoor Cup from MCB Camp Pendleton. It took several weekends but we got the HP range whipped into shape. Hadn't looked that good in years!
The same applies here. Call the USFS and tell then what you want to do. I'll bet they even offer up the materials. The NG did when we worked on the 52nd St. ranges and G&F / ASRPA reimbursed us for oout of pocket expenses at BASF. At a time when gun owners could use some positive press, this is one of them.
I think John may be right here, bringing it to their attention that responsible gun owners are interested in repairing what the irresponsible ones did might just do it. Gotta show them we're not all the same. Not like they're going to post a sentry 24/7 because someone offered to help and they don't want/need it...
