Good call. I do have a place in south Dakota where I am originally from but it's a 4 hour drive and has become very impractical since my 2 kids came along. This range in bemidji what is the membership like? I know of a 1000 yard range in Harris mn that is a couple hours away but the problems there is its full and there is a waiting list. You can only buy a lifetime membership and you can only do that if you are sponsored by a current member and they and another person nominate you to join. I get the purposes of this but come on really. I'm somewhat new to the area and don't really know anybody that's into long range up here so it's not easy to find a member to sponsor me. So any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the advice and I will look into that range. If you have any details that would be great too!
