If you drive through the municipality of Erlenbach im Simmental in Switzerland, along the main road, you’ll pass right underneath a shooting range with bullets whizzing over your head. The Brünnlisau gun range is located just near the east entrance of Erlenbach im Simmental, which is located in the district of Niedersimmental, in the canton of Bern. The shooting house is situated on elevated grounds by the side of the road, while the targets are perched on the side of a hill across an active road. The distance between the two is 300 meters.

While this arrangement appears to be extremely dangerous, the shooting range is actually quite safe. There is a thick concrete wall near the shooting house that obstructs the view of the road, preventing shooters from accidentally putting rounds into the main road.
