THETFORD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont gun club has signed a lease and memorandum of use for a town-owned gun range.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1TKEqef ) that the Upper Valley Fish and Game Club signed the documents last week, after they were approved and signed by the Thetford Selectboard.

The move signals the end of a debate between town officials, residents and the club over the documents’ terms.

Club members had sought to reduce regulations, including doing away with a one shot per second rule. The board clarified that rule, allowing for more frequent firing after 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Residents wanted no shooting on Sundays. The agreement says club users can use the range on the first and third Sundays of the month.

The lease will be in effect for the next 10 years.
