Sig Sauer range causes stir

The Sig Sauer Academy in New Hampshire is trying to improve the safety of its shooting ranges after New Hampshire State Police found that bullets were landing on a nearby highway.

The Union Leader reported the academy released a statement Tuesday afternoon, in which they said a safety structure was under construction to prevent any further incidents.

“The Sig Sauer Academy is fully operational and running regularly scheduled classes and events. The Sig Sauer Academy would like to thank the New Hampshire State Police for their professionalism and the thoroughness of their investigation,” the statement said.

“In April, the Sig Sauer Academy voluntarily suspended normal use of the ranges adjacent to Route 101,” the statement continued. “Since then, a structure has been designed that will provide additional safety measures and is currently under construction.”

The academy’s statement was issued after the New Hampshire State Police unveiled findings of an investigation that started in April when a women’s windshield was struck by a bullet on Route 101 near the academy.

Police concluded the bullet more than likely came from the academy but that it could not have been fired at the time the woman was driving.

Lt. John Hennessey said the bullet may have already been on the road and possibly was flung at her windshield by the tire of another vehicle. Hennessey said investigators found several rounds on the road.

    I would like to see a diagram of the location of the range and the distances to the road along with the “backstop type and height”. That would help me understand what actually transpired and what resulted. Sounds like common sense worked here, but more info needed to support that conclusion

    I love New Hampshire and Vermont. I have been to the Sig Sauer Academy and their classes are topnotch! When I move back to New England, I’ll be at the range 3-4 times a week.
