BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A shooting range in the North Dakota oil patch is holding its fire after a district court judge agreed to a temporary injunction.

Badlands Shooting Club president Peter Jost closed the 40-acre range in Watford City last week, ahead of a court hearing on whether the range should be permanently shut down.

Paul Deutsch, a landowner who’s seeking a permanent injunction against the club, tells the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1yX3cAs ) he found bullet holes in his machine shed and it’s time for the range to move.

Deutsch says he’s not trying to be the bad guy, but didn’t want to wait until someone was hurt or killed.

Jost says the club has been looking for a new home for two years, but prices are up and there’s less land.
