a place to target shoot in SW Minnesota suburbs

I moved back to MN from being stationed in Germany and there is absolutely no place to target shoot close to Chaska, MN.
any suggestions, while I'm waiting to make enough money to buy my own land.

Check any of the local gun clubs first. A lot of them have ranges open any time. I live near St. Cloud and there are several ranges here that have open shooting, you just need to buy a membership usually in the 25$ range for a year.

Trust me, I have checked local gun ranges. they have a 3 year wait and cost $2,000 a year to be a member. You have to pretty much go to st.cloud or farther to find any ranges or clubs that you don't have to be rich to use

What type of range are you looking for? There is a decent range near Delano that I heard is nice and reasonably priced. Also I think Howard Lake also has a range.

thanks for the info. I checked out where Delano & Howard Lake are and they are just as far away from Chaska as the American Legion gun range in Elko is.
Oh well, I guess I just have to dishout the $20 in gas everytime to go to the range or pay $2000 a year for a local place.

Oh yeah, I'm looking for a rifle range of 100 yards and 50 yards.
Looks like I just need to just buy some land halfway through my life when I might be able to afford it. Then I could shoot and ride ATV.
