MN Shooting Ranges Share in State Grant
UNDATED -- Twenty-two shooting ranges in Minnesota will share $371,000 in grant money to make improvements and increase youth participation opportunities. The grants are part of an initiative approved by the Legislature in 2014.
The grants are to help accommodate a significant rise in youth trap shooting, especially by high school students who are part of a statewide league. Existing trap ranges sometimes struggle to meet demand.
The grants will require recipients to provide a 50% match.
Some of the clubs receiving grant money include Beste's Sporting Clays in Sauk Centre which will receive $25,000, Kimball Rod & Gun Club who will receive more than $17,000 and more than $4,000 to Tri-County Rangers in Paynesville.
