Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

To be fair it was a vote at a member meeting so it was not just the board spending the money. Member meetings are attended, at most, by 50 members just saying Very true and that issue is an issue. and then there's that one guy who shows up, starts asking questions that none of gang of 50 is interes...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

How did they get themselves into that position? They took out a massive loan that they are still paying on For all the 'no-blue-sky- barriers, I assume? But that seems to ask more questions than it answers. The barriers were a fairly recent project. What were the major expenses before that? I wonde...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

Membership is capped at 1500 and it is currently below that # I understood it was raised a few years ago beyond 1500 to get new members that were needed for range duty. Even at 1500+/-, that's likely 2-3 times most clubs' membership. Wasn't the increase from 1200 to 1500? You might be right the num...

Re: Beginning of the End for Brass Cases?

Need Russstra to explain polymers. I would think if a polymer gets hot enough it melts or burns. That's exactly what I thought, but the article says the polymer actually helps keep the chamber cooler. This is the kind of thing I was hoping to discuss. It's fascinating to me that polymer is even a p...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

If you want to replace the Board, you need to answer a couple of questions. ⋅  What is the current Board doing wrong? ⋅  What would you do different? Operate as a shooting club, as opposed to a member supported semi-commercial shooting range. I would recommend looking closely at...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

There have been times in the past when I considered getting involved on the board.The make up of the board has always convinced me to keep my distance. Now, I'm committed to too many time sucks to be fair to the membership, or myself. I've never really studied who are the members of the club that ac...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

All the parks are open, and crowded, there was no reason to close a private club. They could have just said "no more than X people on a range at a time, make sure you put 2 benches between shooters." Or something like that. No kidding. Washington Cty has waived entrance fees to their park...

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

Is there one where I could become a member, as close to the Cities? OGC is pretty easy to get into. In fact, this year I think membership induction got shut down. I don't know how many people joined this year vs the the quota, but last year they did not fill out. They only take on members once a ye...

Is there another outdoor range as close to the Cities?

Not one open to the public. :cry:


Are there any private clubs anywhere near being that close to the metro core?
OGC is only 3 miles outside the 694/ 494 loop.

They change it and re-interoperate it regularly. They like to keep us guessing.

Sounds like a place I wouldn't want to belong to.


It's a 10 mn drive from home.

Re: Oakdale Gun Club "OGC" Closure

Could the BOD decision have something to do that with the closed club house that there are no bathroom facilities unless they have porta potty’s. Then someone has to disinfect them on a daily basis if not more. Several the parks I spend time in have closed their buildings/toilets,and have instead b...
