    It has been decades since I have done any competitive shooting and I would like to get in to it again at a fun social level.
    It really doesn’t matter what type. Long distance or Bullseye rifle or pistol, practical or action pistol, rim fire, air gun….
    If anyone knows of any good clubs doing fun matches in Minnesota (preferably West Central) or NoDak (East Central) please let me know.

    www.uspsa.org
    www.idpa.com

    Both will have club finder functions on the website to show where all the local clubs for any given area now.

    Also, Practiscore (originally developed by a USPSA guy) has become pretty much the standard match management software for all shooting sports that I'm aware of.

    www.practiscore.com

    Click on "matches", zoom in on your area on the map and it will likely show where matches are in your area across any number of shooting sports that use Practiscore.

    As I was afraid, nothing within 200 miles.

    Sorry I didn't see your post until now. There is not a lot on the iron range. I am active in NRA and CMP rifle shooting. There are several matches per year at DuLuth and also in the Grand Forks and Moorhead area. We also have 300meter matches fired from an indoor shoot house through the winter near St Francis. These are a bit more informal. We do shoot the national match course, most shoot a service rifle, although an M1 Garand or "other" AR with optics would be welcomed as well. There is a rule there that FMJ or HPBT bullets must be used. No hunting or tipped bullets as they are hard on the electronic targets. I believe there are also some informal shoots in various disciplines at Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Virginia.

    This is the bible for rifle shooting events in MN and surrounding areas. The header says 2019-21, but it is current. https://www.mrra.org/schedule.htm The summer is pretty empty right now as clubs are setting their dates. It will start updating and filling up soon though.
