That bit posted is just weird. It needs the title of USC so one can find anything.

What is current is 10 USC 4309 (http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/10/B/III/401/4309). "10 U.S.C. 4309 : US Code - Section 4309: Rifle ranges: availability for use by members and civilians"

I would like to see the previous topic. I'm going to try and take this to my command to see if there is anything I can work out.

I hope we can convince USMC at Pendelton to allow this - would be really nice to use one of their ranges.

Pendleton had a Pistol range and a shotgun range for skeet and trap; both are currently closed

Pendleton does allow use of its ranges, look up Santa Margaritas gun club.
