Old Range Closed... New Range Coming!
Just a Few Details to Finalize and the New Range Will be Ready to Move In!
|Range Update 8/24/2015 by Janelle -
The Old Range is Closed. The old landlord has ask me to re-announce this because
some members are still going out there and expecting to shoot. That's not our
shooting range anymore.
- The lease on our New Shooting Range is very close to being finalized. The lawyers brought up some legal technicalities that needed to be addressed. The club leadership and the new landlord met to work out these details and (as I understand it) the lawyers will have the new lease ready to sign in a matter of days. I was not at that meeting so if you have questions, please direct them to our club president Rod Schultz at 320-491-2911.
| If you own a gun, you
need a place to shoot. And if you live in Alexandria, MN the place to
shoot is at the Alexandria Gun Club! Located just a few minutes west of town,
our club offers 100 yards of shooting range with target holders at 25, 50, and
100 yard distances. Covered shooting benches protect you from the hot sun, wet
rain, and cold snow... Watch our winter video tour (right) to see the layout!
Membership Is Easy! Just $60 is all it costs for annual membership. There are no additional range fees for members and your membership entitles you to use the range 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM or Sunset (whichever is earlier). We are an NRA affiliated gun club, so you need to be an NRA member to join. Also, you need to be a good citizen - No criminal history. That's it!

Brock Lesnar Shooting at Alex Gun ClubLast Summer, club president Rod Schultz got a call from Brock Lesnar and/or the Federal Cartridge company. Federal wanted to shoot some fun video of Brock shooting their ammo and needed a nice shooting range to look good on the video. Since Brock was training for a championship fight and his secret training camp was somewhere in the Garfield-Alexandria area, they naturally looked up the Alexandria Gun Club...
Rod dropped everything at work to open up our range for the occasion. They shot the video and we even got a nice snapshot photo of Rod and Brock that appeared in the August 2010 Newsletter. The video was supposed to appear on YouTube and I kept watching for it and now finally found it!
|Scott Berger, the guy in the red cap who is the Law Enforcement Coordinator gave us the tour. Very impressive facility. The Tour included the Armory, Gym, where tactical training is held. Shooting Range (automated) ten shooting stations with state of the art ventilation system, and can accommodate 22 long rifle up to 45cal. factory ammo. Anything that can be fired out of a pistol. The range is rated up to 50cal. rounds, but are not allowed due to damage they cause to the back stop. A High Tech. communications center is in the works. The new building also has a huge area used for tactical training with fake building fronts, multi-level stairs, and crawl spaces for the bad guys to hide in, to provide realistic situational training for the law Enforcement students. While all this is taking place, the instructors get a birds eye view from an elevated cat-walk system to observe them while training. - Dave Fitzgerald, Club Secretary|
