CLEANING UP THE RANGE


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Before last Saturday, the Pinnacle Peak muzzle loader range was - to put it mildly - an eyesore. Broken glass, paper wrappers, punctured aluminum cans, even shot-up and rotting Halloween pumpkins littered the landscape. The heavy rubber mine conveyor belts used for target backstops were getting dilapidated. Metal gongs on the hillside had been turned into Swiss cheese by high-power rifle rounds. So when Jax Kraync was looking for an Eagle Scout project, cleaning up the range turned out to be a popular choice. He was able to organize a multi-generational task force that operated heavy equipment and garden tools to remove trash, mounted new mine belt and cut and installed new, inch-thick steel gongs on the hillside. Jax is the son of Karl and Amy Kraync of Price.
