Evening Action At #Bedford Range Raises Questions


Yesterday, July 23, I noticed the familiar “pop pop pop” from the Bedford Rifle Range later in the afternoon. It seemed a little louder than usual, probably because of the weather.
Anyone from the Bedford/Sackville area usually does not even notice the sounds of weaponry being used – we have grown up with it as background noise for decades.

When I do notice it, I like it. It’s home.
Yesterday was a little out of the ordinary. I picked up a few tweets about the firing still going on past mid evening. Maybe they were doing dusk/darkness training. I personally have no problem with this and I’m sure the military would not care if I did. Here is what I read:

Around 9:46 P.M.

” @sack_vegas Is there a war going on? I think they are still at the rifle range.”

Around the same time someone tweeted at the Mayor:

“@MikeSavageHRM Is there a bylaw for the shooting range here in lower Sackville? its 930pm and they have been shooting off rounds”

This is not a big deal to me, but I wonder what the answer is to the second tweet? My guess is “Deal with it” from the military.

Does anyone out there know the answer? Just for fun?

About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
