Gunners inaugurate improved rifle range

Better elevation raises top scores

— The Okanogan Wildlife Council christened its new firing line with a highpower rifle match May 19 at the lower range off of B & O Road next to the county landfill.

“The improvements consisted of building a raised firing line to improve visibility and increase safety in the area,” spokesman Ralph Malone said.
