Minneapolis/Richfield Post 435

Welcome to the Post 435 Gun Club 

The Post 435 Gun Club is a chartered organization of the Richfield American Legion Post 435, located at 6501 Portland Ave. S. The Club was founded in 1961 to provide the many sportsmen and their families that belong to American Legion Post 435 a place to practice their shooting hobbies, picnic and get ready for the many hunting seasons in Minnesota and the surrounding states. Our range and recreation area is just a short drive from the south metro loop, located near Webster, MN five minutes drive south of the Elko / New Market exit on Interstate Highway 35.  Our facilities are open year round to club members and their guests.
