when the slandering was going on last week the range only had a short time left, it had been sold to paper mill as glens 15 year lease was up. he tried to get a new lease with new owners, but last sunday they gave him a few days notice to be out dis assemble his building or lose it. I was going to go last sunday, but he said call me first i might be closed. thats what happened, monday they were moving and all equipment sold to mussel loaders range. i will go nowhere else. its like snapper season, another hobby shot in butt. just wanted to save some of you a long ride.

It wasn't sold to a paper mill. It has always been the Paper mills property and the state leased it from the mill. Glenn was contracted by the state to run the place. Glenn never leased anything from any one.

The lease that the state has with the paper mill is almost up and Glenn is getting the boot because of his unscrupulous "business practices", not keeping the range open during business hours (like right now), and many other problems the state has had with him and the way he ran the range in general.

As of right now the state is currently in negotiations with the property owner(s) for a new lease and it will be under new management when it reopens. New equipment has already been purchased to "refurbish" the range and get it back closer to what it used to be.

Be patient. It will reopen.

yes he has a lawyer, yes he is sueing, its not hear say, it is in black and white for judge to read. i was there monday they gave him a few days to have everything off property or lose it, including building. they were moving trailer monday, thats why they are not open now. ive shot there 10 years and hes never come to stands and said a word to anybody. my friend ,gunsmith shot there 10 yrs also, said the only time he saw him come out and speak to anyone was when they were in front of red line. its been open every time ive been there. i was a drunk for 20 years, almost drinked myself to death before i quit. there is a reason the previous thread was locked, lawyer is writing everything said off forums.some may be true, but most was revenge. its closed, leave it at that.i only slander in private, then its hear say, now its on facebook and all over world, i would sue also, if he does he will win as everyone gave the judge all on paper.
