Hello Fellow Minnesotans. This will help organize MN Events.

If possible, could I get you to post the following:

First Name
City/Region of Minnesota
E-Mail Address
And something you may want to tell us about yourself.

Update: I'm sorry to bring this up everyone, but I was wondering if it's possible for all of you who have previously checked in to edit their posts so they fit the above format? This way we can keep this thread clean, and by only having one entry per member we will reduce the clutter and give a more accurate count/representation of our MN members. I'm going through to delete any additional posts I may have made to this topic. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Edited again to add perhaps I should go first:

Metro area here.

I don't currently own an AR15 but do plan to build one someday when funds are avaiable.

Read AR15.com almost daily.

I'm in White Bear Lake (North suburbs).
Email me thru AR15.com

My friends usually go to Armored Fire ( www.armored-fire.com ) if we don't go up to my Grandma's farm and shoot.

BTW AF has some good looking British 30 rounders for $22 and change. I picked one up when I started to break in my AR15 there this past weekend. <- british steel ones.

I started a reply, but it vanished on me somehow. So, I'll try again. I shoot at the Carver County Sportsmans Club in Waconia and at the Wealthwood Gun Club (north side of Lake Mille Lacs). I'd be hip to hookin' up anywhere for a shoot.

Hello,

I live too close to Armored Fire, so Im biased.

Bills Gun Range does NOT allow brass or steel shell cases to be shot at the range...

The range that is only 25 yards deep...

So, I think Armored Fire is the BESTEST place to shoot in the winter. Nice people, costs are the same and they are great for group events. Not to mention I can shoot all my crappy Blazer ammo there!

I know a nice place we can rent up by Princeton, MN...It is where they have annual machine-gun shoots. This would be good in the warmer months. 100 yard gravel pit that is JUNK FRIENDLY!

Princeton is straight north on 169. Very roughly 1/2 way between Rodgers and Garrison. iNuhBaDNayburhood, are you still (IIRC) in Brooklyn Park? I go thru there almost every weekend. My folks live up in Deerwood.

Link Posted: 12/18/2002 9:56:02 PM EDT
If anyone wants to get a outdoor shoot going, I can start getting some of steel "swinging gongs" welded up. There's a great mexican restaurant on 169 in Princeton (Chicos Place). Keep us informed.
Sleepy717

BTW-Hope the tests went well.

Gongs would be great!

Much cheaper than golf balls!

Would non-AR-owning people (yeah I can't believe it they do exist!) be able to come and shoot other guns too?

If so I have a few friends that like to go shooting.

Lab Rat.. I am in rural Rochester (Pine Island/Oronoco area).. where do you shoot in the area?.. I am member of Zumbro Rifle Club, but have not spent much time at the range there.. do most of my shooting at my own range at cabin in north MN..

Let me know your shooting "habits".. we'll have to try to connect.

checking in from nw minnesota. metro is about a five hour drive, but a shoot would be a great reason to drive. i have a 100 yd + range nearby that would be available and lodging at a local hotel as well.

Devil-
I know the range you're talking about up in Princeton. Took a class there. It would be an excellent venue for our get together.
Link Posted: 12/19/2002 2:17:40 PM EDT
The friends I was talking about own guns but not ARs. I'm sure if they wanted to shoot others they would offer ammo or a "short term gun trade".

Hey sleepy, how often do you shoot at Wealthwood?

My cabin is about a mile from that place....the 300 yard range is nice but the "1 shot every 5 seconds = rapid fire" mentality gets a little old.

If they want to see rapid fire, I'll bring up iNuhBaDNayburhood.....he'll show 'em rapid fire.

Can you keep me posted on openings? I'd be happy just to get on the waiting list.

DA

We can cure that with a little brainstorming, and no 3" mags.

Link Posted: 12/19/2002 11:54:48 PM EDT
friends (especially female!) are always welcome.. have plenty of AR's so all can enjoy.. small contrib $'s for ammo would be sufficient.

MN shoot would be nice .. great to see the number of posts to this thread.. let's arrange a get-together.

..I passed this thread on to "Westy".. he accompanied me to BRC'02.. from the SE Metro burbs.. waiting for him to check in.

who else is in the Rochester area???.. sound off!

Looking forward to meeting the MN members!
Happy & Safe Holidays to All!!

Lurch,
I shoot at Wealthwood about one to two times a month. My folks live about 15 min from there (Deerwood). I spend just about every weekend up in that neck of the woods. The only time the wife & kids don't venture up there is when work is too buisy. I hope to go shootin' there this weekend. I'm praying for snow at this point...

Hi all Minnesotans !

I live in Lakeville, make the trip daily to Waseca for work and would be interested in any get-togethers. I usually shoot at the Sportsman Club in Waseca. (Outdoor range).

MN members.. just posted DPMS lower receiver assembly on EquipExchange.. in state, local txfr possible to save ship/ffl fees.. I work in metro.

Edit to add: MN members $240.00 for private txfr - all ATF/State/Local regs apply.

Bravo5-2.. I belong to the Southern MN Sportsman's Club (south of Roch). It's only about 10 minutes from where I live, but it kinda sucks in some ways so I'm looking for a new place. Thinking about joining the Pine Island club that has the little range along Hwy 52. How's the Zumbro range? I need someplace where I can shoot handgun at 3, 7, 15 and 25 yards. At the place I go now they bitch if you shoot anything other than 25 or 50 yards, sitting at a bench...

edited to add...
Do you have any good ffl's in your area? I'm looking for one to do a couple transfers.
Link Posted: 12/22/2002 9:45:16 PM EDT
Lab_Rat;
I live pretty close to PI range.. only reason I didn't join was no long range.. Zumbro has 200yds.. pretty good range.. several stations.. they were planning a roof over bench area this past year.. don't know if they completed or not.. have not been out for long time.. usually shoot at my cabin in north-MN.

If we get some decent weather, I could meet you and take you up to Zumbrota range for a shoot.. if I recall membership is $25/yr + a few buck for gate key(?)

regarding txfr FFL's, check AuctionArms for list.. thought I saw a few in area cities.

Well, I better check in. I unfortunately don't get here nearly enough, and get to shoot even less.

Oh, I'm in Stillwater

How about an Armored Fire get-together on Dec. 28th...Late afternoon, after the Bloomington gun show?

I'm not sure I'll be around town on the 28th. I may be "up nort" for the weekend and my folks, in which case, I'll be going to Wealthwood. By the way, where is Armored Fire loacted? What kind of facility is it and what do the allow people to shoot?
Thank you,

The shows there are kind of on the small side, I think there in the Henn. Tech. College. I've come to skip the show, not much there I buy, (old stuff).

You missed a huge weapon show in St. Paul last week-end!!! The DPMS guys had smoking deals on there lowers and Aimpoints.

Theres another BIG show coming to: Minneapolis Convention Center Feb. 22-23 2003 & March 22-23 State Fair grounds.

I cannot think of a better way to spend MY birthday either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Damn, I was gonna pull the "It's my birthday, buy me some ammo." thing, but now it wont have as much impact. =(

Ok, Dual ARF.COM BIRTHDAY SHOOT.

Saturday, December 28, 2002..

Sometime around 6 pm.

This is just informal. We'll get a bigger one going in January.

Well I found out the friend that suggested we go today has the day off and will probably be there in the early afternoon. However his brother and another friend might possibly go with me in the evening.

EDIT: sorry guys not going today, gotta go dumpster dive at someone's work, they are throwing away workbenches!

I will probably go to AF to buy some of the british 30s they had but not to shoot.

I'm still on for saturday.

Sleepy - is Wealthwood open in the winter?

I'm going up to Mille Lacs next weekend with a couple of new toys to work over. Let me know if you're going to be up there - I'll buy you a beer at the Goose.
