We held our annual sight-in days for one last weekend and then close the current range November 1, 2016.

Dave B. met with Dave Rush yesterday (1/6).  He said there will not likely be any public input allowed when the Planning Commission discusses legal aspects of ordinances regarding zoning for the establishment of certain outdoor activities at the Tuesday meeting.  I still may attend just to keep abreast of the situation but it would probably be unnecessary for many other of our members who wanted to attend.  Even the “complainants” in this on-going drama have been so advised.  I will report any significant elements of the Commission’s discussion.

Brock Lesnar Shooting at Alex Gun Club

  Last 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!

Tuesday Nights (Winter 2011) at the Indoor Range 6:00 PM... It Was Fun!

Indoor Range Tour  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
