Shooting Ranges?

Recommended Posts

I just got a new rifle and was wondering where I can shoot it and sight it in. I live in Ramsey. I was also wondering what you guys think about "conditioning the barrel." Some people say it is necessary and others say it is talk. What do you think?
Thanks,
Jeff

Arnored Fire is on lake drive right off of 35W in Circle Pines. They will take most caliber of rifles, I believe, not sure though. It is a 50 yd. range indoor range if Im not mistaken, cost was somewhere around 15 dollars last year, extra for more guns I think.

I go to Del Tone gun club in St Cloud right off Hwy 10. They have anywhere from 50-200 yard targets. It usually isn't too crowded if you get there early on a weekend either

If you don't get to it before October, BeaverBrook gun club off HWY 65 on Klondik Drive is open to the public every weekend in October and first weekend in November .

If you need to shoot it sooner, we could meet there on a week night, as I am a member I can bring in up to two friends to shoot.Cost is $5.00 per gun if you go with me,and the deer rifle sight in through October,November is like $7 bucks per gun.

Just let me know if you want to go out there during the week, I live off HWY 10 in Coon Rapids so it is on your way there.Takes me 25 minutes from here, so it is close.

Check out Minnetonka Gun Club.....it's near Nowthen. I don't have the info with me, but they are in the book.

Members only shooting most of the time, but they do open up to the public for several weekends.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
