This has been tried at least once before in Edmonton, and damn it we will try again. Other than the obvious issues with liability, the other big hurtle which has been brought to my attention is security clearance for civies. That was the other big reason that the previous attempts have failed. This may be a issues that we simple won't be able to get around. But I am still hopeful, like I have said I am waiting on my precedence in Borden. They have a paintball field in a training area and civies are allowed.
I can see how eager people are to support in this and see a good result. Just remember this is going to take some time, alot of time. The better prepared we are when we go forward the better. In the slim chance this does get approved it will still take longer after that, these ranges are booked months in advance if not more than a year.
