MI: Michigan State University to open new shooting sports facility
Submitted by:
Target shooters and archers have a new location to learn, hone their skills and brush up on hunting safety, with the opening of Michigan State University’s John and Marnie Demmer Shooting Sports Education and Training Center.

A public open house will be held 3-7 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Demmer Center, which officially opens Oct. 5.

The $3.5 million, 24,000-square-foot facility will allow the public to learn shooting safety and improve shooting and archery skills, in addition to housing MSU club shooting sports — small bore, air rifle and archery. Other potential uses include academic programs in shooting sports, law enforcement and related curricula and NCAA competitive shooting events.

This is great news. I missed this when it was first posted. I'd love to see all state supported schools have shooting sports facilities. Sure, I'm dreaming - some states are far too liberal, with no appreciation of firearms or of the 2nd Amendment. When I was in school (Midwestern State Univ., Wichita Falls, TX), MANY years ago, several of us used to go shooting with various of our profs. Some of the instructors from ROTC were really good rifleman, & one Captain could do great work with his personal 1911A1. Almost all of us students had been shooting since childhood. We used to take the profs squirrel & dove hunting - competitive & great fun.
