The first question I will ask is: "Does the club OWN the land that the range is on?" If the answer is "no", my next words will be "Then I'm not interested. Good bye."

I want to spend my "Second Amendment money" wisely. It's obvious to me that if a club does not OWN land, they are really not serious about there future, or the future of the shooting sports, or mainly about furthering the Second Amendment.

I will post choices I find on this thread.

Find any clubs you are interested in. :?:

Latest developments, as of October 2019:

In May ( or June), a email survey was sent out to West Branch Rifle & Pistol club (WBRPC) members.
There were 2 possible locations for land purchase: Vermillion or West Salem.

The membership was asked to pick 1 of 3 choices:

1) Vermillion
2)West Salem
3)Neither location. Keep looking.

The majority of the membership voted for choice #1 : Vermillion.

Ok then...

The board purchases 80 acres of land in...West Salem! :shock: I'm told this land is not zoned for use as a gun range at this time. All it will take is a noise or safety complaint from ONE neighbor to shut down any shooting.
Board members who disagreed had there "voting rights" removed. Most (if not all) of those folks resigned from the WBRPC board.
Here is a link to the "new" West Branch Rifle & Pistol club website: https://wbrpc.org/

As if this was not a bad enough decision, there is a well established Gun Club 4 miles down the road : Ashland Lake Gun Club (ALGC). http://www.ashlandlakegunclub.org/

If WBRPC survives, which I think is doubtful, it would take them 30 years to get to the level that Ashland Lake Gun Club is today. I know this first hand, as I became a member of ALGC earlier this year. ALGC will now get my "2nd Amendment" dollars, and my work party time.

The board of directors of WBRPC has once again failed the membership. I will let my nearly 20 year membership in that club expire in February, 2020.
