    MDFI Will Not Be Utilizing Caledonia Sportsmans Club Any Longer

    Good afternoon all,

    For those that may not have heard, MDFI will no longer be holding classes or utilizing Caledonia Sportsman's Club in Alto Michigan any longer due to serious safety concerns stemming from the witnessed consumption of alcohol on the firing line/individuals witnessed drinking and then shooting and inaction from the BoD to do anything about it. Unfortunately, there are still firearms organizations who are aware of this issue that are still using the club without notifying the attendees on top of many of the public who do not know and venture to the club to shoot.

    We have documented the full story here for those that are interested: FOR FULL STORY CLICK HERE

    Hopefully there will be a change before something bad happens because of this grossly irresponsible behavior and we would caution anyone before being anywhere near the club.

    Good Gosh!

    I just found this thread.

    This is shocking and unbelievable.

    Once again, an example how the country has shifted morals, ethics, and safety practices in the name of money. Good for MDFI for being a stand up organization. I hope that the Caledonia Range BOD feels the financial sting of losing business and comes to their senses.
    Have we grown so weak that it's too much to temporarily wear a simple piece of cloth over our face when we interact with other people in public? Years of handing out (and getting) participation trophies has softened us to a point that we cry "liberty!" instead of trying to help.

    I have never been there but their reaction seems off.

    Either the most connected guys there drink and no one wants to ruffle feathers, or they have scary ideas about safety and liability.

    I'm not poopoo ING your response but I've shot there 600 times and never saw anyone do anything I'd take issue with from the little bar to the range...

    They're all good old boys that sit up there...

    While I have never seen this happen at Lapeer Co Sportsman Club I did see at the Oakland Co SC when I was a member there. They have a big bar and it appeared to be a big source of income for them.
    Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

    While I drink very little and never when shooting are handling firearms I see no problem with having a drink AFTER the guns are cased for the day. You have a drink and get your gun out I an gone!
