Stayed for 3 days during a recent visit to the area. Wish I had longer. Marksmen have ample opportunities to shoot. Over a dozen ranges. Lodging is clean if Spartan. Great for a large group. Lots of fauna to watch in the morning and evening.

This place had quite the collections of guns and various other historical artifacts. The center just happened to be on our way home, what a nice place to get out and stretch your legs, especially if your into guns and history.

We like to go to the gun museum because the displays are interesting and educational and some of the guns are absolutely works of art. I like to go to buy jewelry. There is a nice selection and unique pieces.
