The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) gives public notice that the James O. Thomason Firing Range in Spartanburg County will be closed for range modifications from March 25, 2013 until July 23, 2013.

The James O. Thomason Firing Range is a supervised range that is owned and operated by DNR in Spartanburg County. The range currently provides five 100-yard stations and ten 200-yard stations. Pistol shooting is currently limited to Wednesdays only. DNR is closing the James O.
