The first public indoor shooting range in northern Minnesota is now open to the public approximately eight miles west of Proctor at 6552 US Highway 2. The Dead-On Shooting Range opened on Black Friday after it had been under construction since May.
The $1.9 million facility features 10 lanes for target practice, firearms available to be rented on site, and a retail store selling firearms and ammunition. There is also a classroom for people to take a permit-to-carry class in Minnesota.
The class will be offered on Dec. 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, and 30, and costs $150. It features four hours of classroom work, and two hours of indoor range practice.
Chad Walsh, Dead-On Shooting Range co-owner, says the range has been needed for a long time, and that it is in a location where anyone can use it.
"I think this was perfect. It's kind of centrally located for everybody," said Walsh.
Kerry Rodd was at the facility training on Monday. He says it's nice to not have to worry about the outdoor elements when shooting indoors.
"You don't have to play the wind. You don't have those issues that you have outdoors, the distractions, so you can truly get an idea of exactly what your talent level is and where you're at, and what you need to do," said Rodd.
Dead-On Shooting Range charges $25 per hour of shooting in the lanes, which are 25 yards long. Annual memberships are also available. The initiation fee for one adult is $425, and there are four different packages to choose from ranging from $35 to $60 for one adult. Family and couple memberships are also available.
