I wondered who....

So much for my idea of putting a turn around for a large vehicle in there and running a shuttle service. 10 laps a day yo!

Don't think you can actually build on it, or so I have been told.

3/4 of an acre does not seem nearly large enough for shoot'n... plus it seems pretty close to some very, very high priced real estate, in terms of noise that is...  so, if anyone is planning on starting up some kind of range... I'm pretty sure it would get shut down asap. I'd start letting some of the residents know about this.

Good point about the noise. The old range by the scout camp way up Lillooet road was shut down I think for that reason. I know some folks that lived in Lynn Valley that had complained about noise.

You can't build anything on it. At most maybe a flat deck platform but no actual structure with walls. Anyone have the links to the guy with the wee tiny private lot on Seymour that build a 10x10 shed with a cot in it and had to tear it down? This land it classed the same.

I think the only thing you're allowed to do with that land is to pay taxes for it!

Kinda like a new dam we’re building where it would be just as effective to take a $15B pile of cash and light it on fire.

Nudists and gun enthusiasts? Not sure if that's a match made in heaven or a recipe for disaster .......

Damn, I saw the headline and was hoping for a reunion. Those guys broke up in the 90's, it would have been sweet for them to have a rehearsal space at the 6th, I would have hung out all day long.

Saw the Flesh Eaters last year at the Rickshaw, made me long for a Gun Club reunion.
