Target Ammunition Information

We recently received a notice from the Utah State Fire Marshal, and wanted to share it with everyone.  This notice explains how fires are caused by certain types of ammunition, and cites knowledge and education as the ways to prevent further wildland fires caused by steel jacketed ammunition.

While on the subject, we would also like to remind everyone of Bountiful City’s ordinance on firearms which is included below.

10-1-109 – Firearms and Weapons

It is unlawful:

(a)  to hunt within the City limits of Bountiful;

(b)  to discharge any air gun, BB gun, slingshot, crossbow, bow and arrows, or similar contrivance;
