The Federal Aviation Administration says the Caseyville Rifle and Pistol Club is no danger to people or planes.
But officials in St. Clair County have a different view of the shooting range located near Scott Air Force Base and MidAmerica St. Louis Airport.
The county has been trying to get an injunction to shutter the club and insists the open-air range endangers low-flying planes.
County officials have asked a judge to toss out as evidence an FAA letter calling the shooting range safe.
