Small Arms Range Opens at Bangor

Silverdale -- The Navy opened a new $12 million small arms shooting
range Monday in Naval Base Kitsap at Bangor. 

The 43,500-square-foot indoor facility quadruples the capacity of the
Navy's old shooting range at Camp Wesley Harris. 

Only one of five ranges has been in use at that site, which is listed on
the state's register of hazardous sites for lead and chromium
contamination from spent ammunition. 

In addition to four operational ranges, the new facility has
state-of-the-art environmental safeguards, including a protective catch
system for bullets and an air filtration system.
