Minnesota Shooting Sports Education Center
Located on 122 acres surrounded by forestland the MSSEC is open to the public for educational training, train the trainer programs, 4-H Shooting Sports, NRA programs, Youth Firearms Safety, Minnesota Advanced Hunter Education, and supervised recreational shooting. The twelve lane, 50-meter range provides shooters with state-of-the-art equipment and educational facilities. MSSEC specializes in airgun, archery, and small bore rifle, although the range can handle handguns up to 50 calibers. The outdoor 3-D archery range is realistically situated in a wooded setting with hunting style shots from elevated stands, ground blinds, and even an African game at a water hole. Beginners and experienced shooters both benefit from MSSEC’s firearm rental program which allows shooters to try a variety of firearms before making a purchase. A visit to MSSEC makes a great side trip for vacationers or business travelers.
The USA Olympic Shooting team coach, Dan Durben, after training with the Olympic rifle team, proclaimed MSSEC one of the finest shooting centers in the nation. The MSSEC is located at 483 Peterson Road in Grand Rapids and is open to the public. To schedule a visit or for more information visit their website at: www.mssec.org or call 218-327-0583.
