An Apex-based military training contractor plans five shooting ranges on 50 acres of rural Cumberland County farmland. Some neighborhood landowners have expressed concern about the proximity to their property.

The bullets could start flying as soon as next month, TigerSwan Inc. President Brian J. Searcy told Cedar Creek area landowners this week.

The proposed site is part of an 1,800-acre agricultural spread that Southern Produce Distributors Inc. nearly sold two years ago for more than $5 million to the military contractor formerly known as Blackwater Worldwide.
