The Minnesota Organization of Bloggers Day at the Range will be held on Thursday, July 14, at Burnsville Pistol Range in Burnsville. The event will run from 5-8PM.
The event will be a benefit for the family of the late Joel Rosenberg. The suggested donation to participate is $20 – and since every penny of proceeds will go to the Rosenbergs, anything extra is appreciated.
We’ll have five or six firing lanes. Bring your own handguns; if you don’t own any, there will be quite a few loaners there from various MOB members.
The ammo supply is, in that great Minnesota tradition, pot luck; feel free to bring a box of ammo out to use on pieces that you want to borrow; you can certainly barter and share ammo when you get there if you want to try more than one piece. You may also buy ammunition at Burnsville, which sells most of the popular calibers of pistol ammo. Indeed, we recommend buying ammo at BPR – they are giving us a spectacular rate on the bay.
We have loaners committed in the following calibers:
- .22 Long Rifle
- .38 Special
- .357 Magnum
- 9mm Parabellum/Luger
- .40 S&W
- .45 ACP
- .45 Long Colt (revolver)
Please respond in the comment section, or by emailing me at “feedbackinthedark”, which is a Yahoo dot com address. Please provide…:
- Your name
- Any extra people in your party
- Whether you will or will not be bringing a piece.
- Whether you’d be willing to share the piece(s) with other particpants.
Hope to see you there!

OK, I’m going to try to be there. Coming alone, because I’m a man of mystery, who rides a lonely trail. I’ll bring my Ruger Vacaro. Share? In case of need.
Thanks for naming the date; it’s on the calendar. On alternate Thursdays I’ve been going down to the Red Wing Correctional Facility to lead a Bible Study in the men’s cottage. With Dayton’s Big Pout going on, the DOC has put all but a couple of volunteer incursions on hold so the 14th is looking good right now.

I’ll be there with my SIG .40 and willing to share. Might have one additional person with me.
Dang! I wanted to bring my Czechoslovakian shoulder cannon. 😉
Angryclown wants to bring his North American trouser cannon. Will share only with ladies.
Thank you all so much for this. I will be there.
Excellent! Looking forward to it! (And totally crossing my fingers in the auction…)
Duly noted. I’ll add .25ACP to the ammo list.
Full metal seltzer for ac.
Also, I couldn’t remember what ACP stood for, but now Mitch has helped clarify. The first two letters stand for Angry Clown.
Unless something businessy comes up, I’ll plan on being there, hopefully with a friend. I’ll bring 9mm, 45ACP And 45LC.

Mitch, I will be there also, with 6 [+/- 1] assorted engines of mayhem, and some ammo known to function in the picky ones.
I never met Joel, but my impression was of a stand up guy. The range day sounds fun and I will definitely be there. Probably coming alone. I will be bringing .45ACP, .32auto, 9mm, and .22. I would be happy to share these.
It looks like my friend will be joining the party. He will be bringing a Glock .40, but am not sure about sharing.
