Last week Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., hailed U.S. Senate action that will bring S.3525 to the floor for final passage during the lame duck session following the November general election.



S. 3525, also known as the Sportsmen’s Act, includes Udall’s Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support provision.

If passed during lame duck the bill would provide states with greater flexibility to use funds collected from sporting equipment and ammunition sales to create more accessible gun ranges for safe target practice and recreational shooting.



“This bill and my shooting range proposal are good news for Colorado hunters and sportsmen,” Udall said in a news release. “The Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act is a bipartisan, common-sense proposal that improves shooting range access for sport shooters and hunters.

“I look forward to completing action on this package to give Colorado sportsmen greater access to our public lands and create new, safe and well-managed areas where they can responsibly practice their sport.”

The bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act, including Udall’s marksmanship training provision, passed the U.S. House of Representatives in June.
