Salt Lake City — Have you ever wondered what it would be like to shoot a bow and arrow? How about a .22-caliber rifle or a shotgun?

You can find out on May 22, 2010 at the Lee Kay Public Shooting Range. With the exception of the facility's shotgun range, all of its shooting ranges will be open for free from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. that day.
And, if you want to shoot on the shotgun range, you can for a reduced price.
If you don't have any equipment or don't know much about shooting, no problem. The Division of Wildlife Resources has equipment you can borrow from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. that day. Free shooting instruction will also be provided.
Experienced shooters are also invited to come to the range on May 22, 2010 and shoot for free from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The Lee Kay Public Shooting Range is at
6000 W, 2100 S in Salt Lake City.
"Beginning and advanced shooters are welcome," says Ralynne Takeda, shooting sports coordinator for the DWR. "Equipment and instruction will be available for those who would like to try archery, shotguns and .22-caliber rifles for the first time.
"Plan on joining us for a fun day at the shooting range."
If you enjoy the shooting sports and would like to help others enjoy them too, you're invited to join Lee Kay's volunteer force.
The range is looking for volunteers to help with its daily operations. Volunteers are needed to serve as safety officers on the facility's firing ranges, to help at the front counter and to maintain both the rifle and shotgun ranges.
If you'd like to volunteer, call Herm Rackl at 801-972-1326.
