The Hardin County Sheriff’s Office reports an increasing number of complaints about the use of exploding shooting targets.
Detective Sgt. Rex Allaman said exploding targets are a growing trend in the area. In many cases, he said the target user’s neighbor has filed the complaint.
According to Allaman, some residents have filed more than one complaint.
“The stuff is legal to have; it’s legal to use,” he explained. “Like anything, if it’s used like it’s intended, it’s not bad.”
