    Not really what I had hoped to see:

    (1) it is only for use by ROTC students . . . after "extensive training", and

    (2) "the cadets will practice shooting with Daisy pump air rifles".

    Somewhat misleading headline in my opinion.

    We had one in our high school over 50 years ago built into a crawl space
    beneath the floor of the auditorium and it got very well used. It stayed
    open even after one ROTC student broke protocol by loading one round
    in a .22 rifle before he got into shooting position and when the rifle butt
    contacted the floor, it went off and killed the wall clock that sat above
    the targets so the shooters could know when the class time was up
    since we couldn't hear the bell inside. Please don't ask me who the
    doofus was, I know NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!:lol6:
