ah, sweet! thank you very much.
Rule #1 always treat any gun as if it is loaded even if you just uloaded it yourself.
I'm in the Ann Arbor area and the options here are pretty limited. I don't know anyone so as to get into one of the clubs; Washtenaw or Chelsea. If I was planning on living here for longer, I suppose I would join, but as it is it just isn't worth it. I've gone up to "The Firing Line" in Westland quite a few times, but being from North Dakota the idea of range fees is quite foreign to me. There is a free DNR range down by Grass Lake, but the DNR rules are enough to drive you up the wall. The indoor range in Dexter is close, but is only 15 yds and you have to buy their "green friendly" ammo. I'm still looking to find some private property to shoot on, but no luck so far.
All the best,
Hi guys I live in Grand Rapids we have a few clubs around but we also have state land about 28 miles north with a nice area to shoot in
oops double post and i can't type worth beans ethier.
I live near Grayling and am blessed, in that a neighbor set up an outdoor range, with 15, 25 and 50 yd bunkered target areas. The only negative is that there are no indoor ranges here, so the precision takes a major step back during the cold months.
Here in Hubbardston, just south of Carson City is a fine club and range to shoot clays ,pistol or what ever.
Grew up in the small town of Hudsonville but have lived in Texas for 10 years. Hate to say but I think I finally became a Texan although I still love Michigan. Visit at least once a year.
lived all over Michigan...U.P., West Branch, Hale, Dearborn, Grand Rapids, Homer, Rockford...still visit each year!
DON'T miss the snow...

I grew up in Michigan during the 40's and 50's in the Royal Oak area. Left home 45 years ago to join the military, and have been back only a few times. I really enjoyed Spring, Summer, and Fall, but could have done without the Winters there. If I had to go back to live there, it would definitely be somewhere in the U.P. I remember waiting in long lines on the highway during hunting season for a ride on the ferry across the Straights of Mackinac--before the Mackinac Bridge was built.
