Oak Park Heights to Get a New Gun Range

Good news fellow Minnesotans, we’re getting a new gun range in Oak Park Heights:

A gun range, retail space and Airsoft practice facility will replace the abandoned Denny Hecker Ford dealership at the southeast corner of Highway 36 and Stillwater Boulevard in Oak Park Heights.

Minnesota Outdoor Shooting Sports hopes to open the Minnesota Shooting Academy on the site by July 1 next year. The city council approved the site plan review and variance to allow a 40-foot freestanding sign Oct. 22.

The 56,000 square-foot facility will be modified to include two gun range areas, a small gym and lounge, retail space and a small cafe.

When it comes to places to shoot the more the merrier.
