PLACERVILLE, Calif. (Dec. 16, 2019)   The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians announced today that it will close its gun range in January.  
 
The gun range, located immediately south of the interchange of Highway 50 at Shingle Springs Drive, has been open to Tribal Members and their guests for several years. Shooting hours are limited, extensive safety measures are in place, and a sophisticated, environmentally friendly bullet entrapment system was installed.
 
Chairwoman Regina Cuellar explains, “The Tribe is committed to the community and is dedicated to doing what is best for everyone. It is in that spirit that we made the decision to close the gun range. Following a notice to Tribal Members, the gun range will close in January.” 
 
Other uses for the land have not been determined.
