    Looking for a range to burn some ammo. What's around the twin cities? I am staying in white bear lake.

    +1 to bills north, not that far from White Bear. Kind of expensive to shoot though.

    Steel shoot and general BS session this saturday. It's about an hour west of town but everybody seems to have fun and learn something. PM me if you'd like to come I'll get you directions or give you a ride.

    This is set up as more of a competitive shoot. Timed in the morning and head to head in the afternoon. Some are real good shots, but mostly it's just fun until someone makes an ass of themselves, then it's hilarious.

    start time is supposedly 10am it's usually closer to 11 before shooting actually starts. Round count varies based on how stages are set up, last month the possible was 96, I shot somewhere around 130 and high count was 199. Cost is $10. The shooting is usually done by 2 or 3 with some fun shooting afterwards.
