In Old Noarlunga SA on “Outdoor firing range and...” at 1559 Piggott Range Road, Old Noarlunga SA 5168:

Ryan Jones commented

What a wonderful and exciting development for the southern suburbs!

With an already existing and well utilized range so close by, sound or noise pollution will clearly not be an issue.

With the nearest similar range being in the northern suburbs at Greenwith, the location proves to be prohibitive for the majority of individuals south of the city. The new proposed range would be immensely popular and the local economy and surrounding businesses would most certainly feel the positive flow-on effects of this.

I’m assuming all the ‘nay sayers’ to the proposed sporting range have never actually had anything to do with firearms and are just feeding off the negative stigma and media hype.

I would certainly suggest to them a trip to any range to see how heavily regulated and safe the environment and sport as a whole actually is. They would see how many different walks of life the myriad of shooting disciplines actually attract and change their attitudes pretty quickly.
