A North Carolina military training contractor that hopes to build five shooting ranges in Cumberland County says it doesn't intend to expand beyond those plans.
The Fayetteville Observer reports neighbors aren't sure about that promise.
Apex-based TigerSwan hopes to build the shooting ranges on 50 acres now owned by Southern Produce Distributors Inc.
TigerSwan operates a 40-acre firing range in Linden for Fort Bragg soldiers, local police and hunters. TigerSwan Chief Executive James P. Reese says that range will close if the new ranges on Barra Farms near Cedar Creek are approved for military training by the Defense Department.
Reese and other officials met earlier this week with nearby residents and landowners, who say they're concerned that TigerSwan plans a larger operation later.
