Mission Statement

To preserve the Second Amendment by educating the community on firearm safety and how to shoot proficiently through community events and by having a safe place to practice your shooting skills. We will promote the safe enjoyment of rifle and pistol shooting among our members, the general public, and expressly the youth of the Dunn county area. We will maintain and improve the Menomonie Public Shooting Range so that it will be available for future generations.

Who We Are

Members of the club include people from all walks of life, all ages, and backgrounds. Our goal is to promote shooting sports while practicing safe firearms handling and marksmanship. Through a partnership with Dunn County Facilities, the club consists of volunteers focused and motivated to give back to our community by operating, maintaining, and improving the Menomonie Public Shooting Range and provide a safe, family-friendly location for people to practice the sport of shooting firearms.

Club History

The Menomonie Rifle and Pistol Club,LLC was founded in 1980. Originally, the club met at the National Guard Armory. Eventually, the club started to meet at the Menomonie Public Shooting Range. At that time, the range was little more than a garbage dump. The club started to clean it up and eventually the responsibility of operating and maintaining the range was passed on to the Rifle and Pistol Cub. From the beginning, the Menomonie Rifle and Pistol Club has partnered with the Dunn County Fish and Game Organization and Dunn County Facilities to manage and improve the range facilities at the Menomonie Public Shooting Range for our community.

Club Activities and Projects

Over the years, the club has built berms, covered firing benches, brought in electricity, planted trees, put in separate pistol, 25-100, 200, and 300 yard ranges, added cement walkways, and built a range office and several outbuildings. In 2018, we added a new maintenance building to lower operating costs and a trap range so the Menomonie High school trap team would have a local area to practice and compete. Private donations from individuals and local organizations raised money for a maintenance building and a trap range. Parents of the Menomonie High School Trap Club and members of the Menomonie Rifle and Pistol Club volunteered their time to complete these projects. We drilled a well to provide running water so clients could better remove lead residue from their hands.

While the COVID-19 shutdown closed range for 8 weeks, we were able to make many improvements to the range including building new color-coded targets stands, replacing the 300 yd. firing bench with a ADA compliant bench that also accommodates both left and right handed shooters, landscaping the berms to provide additional safety, installing a gravel walkway behind the trap firing positions, improving the trap range by landscaping and applying rock retaining walls for water runoff and erosion control, re-grading the ditches leading to the DNR waterway, new yardage markers, and cleaning or painting many parts of the range.

The DNR waterway was regraded as parts have filled in over the years, A van accessible path with wheelchair access was added to the 300 yd firing bench , and to improve the area around our maintenance building to increase outside storage capacity. Future plans include expanding the pistol area from 4 to 6 firing points and possibly extending the 300 yard range to 400 yards.

Volunteers and donations are always welcome to come out and help to make the range safer and improve accessibility for members of our community.

In addition to operating and maintaining the range, the Menomonie Rifle and Pistol club hosts several events open to the public throughout the year. To see which upcoming events we are hosting, go to the events page. To see pictures and videos of our events, go to our Facebook Page.
