    Jackpot shoots at the Minneapolis Gun club are similar to others and yet have one twist that you will come to like. Adn that is initially you shoot your first round at the 16 yard line and then immediately move to the second field for handicap. Adn then everyone becomes a long yardage shooter. Your minimum yardage will be at the 25 unless you have a ATA handicap of more than 25. In those cases, you shoot form your ATA yardage. And because you move from one trap to the next with the squad intact, everything moves along smoothly. Adn the Lewis scores are usually bulked up into the low to mid 40s. Adn that means you will hit for a payout if you have been able to have long runs at the front or the back of whichever round is chosen by the coin flip. So, the pressure is on to break-em-all and if you do happen to miss, then you begin again because it just may be that your long run from the back may make you a winner. 40% Minimum payouts are geared around paying you back your entry and if you are the head of your class it pays 60%. Ties are possible, but never happen.

    Good targets, good food, and the group alwasy welcomes nnew shooters. Begin at 10 AM, last shot at 4 PM, but usually it is all over by 2 to 3 PM.

    See you there.

    Jackpot Shooters, just a heads-up. If you travel on 35W, they will have southbound 35W CLOSED SATURDAY between Hwy 13 and Co. Rd. 42.

    So, c'mon out on 35E, Cedar Ave. or Hwy 169.

    Start time is 10:00 AM. The kitchen will be open for breakfast at 9:00 AM.

    Hope to see you there.
