Here in Utah we have just had our 5th of about 13 wildfires that has been attributed to target shooting this season. Out here lots of target shooting occurs in wilderness areas, rather than in shooting ranges. That being said, I am concerned of regulations that will surely follow restricting target shooting due to possible fires. I have shot my entire life, and I have never seen evidence that would suggest fires are started by target shooting and associated ricochets...not that it couldn't happen, but 5 times in one season in one state? Seems very odd to me. So my question is have any of you seen evidence that would suggest target shooting could be the cause of so many fires? I can see the news spots now...we need to control where people can shoot because they clearly can't make smart decisions to avoid ricochets on their own.
