Gun club application creates controversy near Courtland
ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) — It was a full house at The Nicollet County Board of Commissioners Meeting Tuesday morning as the board took up a proposed expansion to the River Ridge Gun and Archery Club.

The club historically has been a shotgun and archery range, but its new owners have applied for pistol and rifle shooting as well.

[...]

Additional conditions added Tuesday include a limit to .39 caliber rifles or smaller, research must be done around the property to allow or disallow black powder guns and no alcohol can be served before or during your shooting experience, only after.


If you're in the neighborhood, you might want to express your opinion:

The next meeting on the subject will be Aug. 25.

I'd need to see their plan for containing projectiles before giving it my blessing.

research must be done around the property to allow or disallow black powder guns


What is the concern about this?

I'm guessing it has to do with their .39 caliber rule.

So a 10mm PCC would be out? Or are carbines exempt?

Lol.

I own land near there.

I’ve shot my .50 BMG there. Varmint shooting.

What a joke. But then again, I don’t that logic is part of this.

I really hope someone stood up during the public comment period and stated how stupid the commissioners are. I can't stand stupid people.

So I could shoot a .338 lapua, but not .41 swiss.

Yup because .41 Swiss sounds more dangerouser...bigger and scary ....it is obvious that there is a lack of knowledge and that collective lack of knowledge is going to set the rules for the knowledgeable..... ain't that just the epitome of Government.......

Never occurred to them to ask some questions or do their homework. Or better yet, bring in a qualified consultant to make sure they are approaching this correctly.

You can shoot .50 BMG at most of the ranges at OGC.
