I have lived in chugiak for 29 years now. I have been shooting at the Birchwood range most of my life. I read a posting about Rabbit Creek and saw that many people prefer the atmosphere at Birchwood. I am here to tell you that the rudeness, disrespect and poor treatment of patrons are as much common place here as well as in town. After my trip to the range today I have decided to discontinue my support of this range. Although a lifelong Birchwood resident, i'll drive to the valley from now on.
I have no problem with range rules but don't respond well to harassment; especially by range officials.
