(WJBK) -

In efforts to discourage the random firing of guns into the air to celebrate the new year, Action Impact in Southfield is offering free time in the shooting range over New Year's Eve.

Free range time will be available 10 a.m. Dec. 31, 2013 - 1 a.m. Jan. 1, 2014.

The owners hope people will choose this safer alternative.

"We're asking everybody to also participate in discouragement. It's dangerous. We've got bullets that are coming down, we don't know where they're coming down. And we also have people who are intoxicated or under the influence that are shooting those guns. It's very dangerous for our community. So this is our way of saying let's not do that. Don't do it on any day but don't do it on New Year's Eve," says William Kucyk, the owner of Action Impact.

Two days before New Year's Eve the shop will also stop selling range ammunition out the door.

Action Impact is located at 25992 West Eight Mile Road.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
