Sand Burr Gun Ranch--Indiana




Does anyone have any experience with this outfit? Gunsite and Thunder Ranch are mighty pricey and would require round trip airfare for me. Sand Burr is within driving distance and they have several interesting 1-2 courses that are less that $400.

Has anyone taken any courses here? If so, please let me know how your experience was.

Thank you!

Lived in Indiana for several years and actively sought out places to train but never heard of it. Still, with what is shown on the site, it looks to be just fine.

If you go to the ingunowners forum and do a sand burr search, you can find what is and has been done there. I have no personal experience to give though.

Mas Ayoob teaches at least 2 of his courses a year there. I took his MAG-80 (LFI II) class there 2 years ago.

Denny is a riot to be around. Carried TWO S & W .44 mags while a practicing cops. Now just carries the one since he retired.... Shoots his business card in half with his .44 mag. at 10 paces to give for momentos ( on edge ) His daughter and son in law do some of the teaching and both seem well versed in shooting.

I say that the fact that Mas likes them speaks kudos for their operation.

I really enjoyed the class and had a great time. It is rather rugged, mind you. The classroom is in a barn and all the shooting is outdoors. Nice range, though.

If you are in Ohio, this is an option as well.

Sand Burr is located by Rochester, IN.

http://www.sandburrgunranch.com/public/default.aspx

While I've never taken a class there, I used to shoot pins with Denny at his old indoor range in the middle of town. He is a factory trained S&W armorer and an incredible shot with a wheel gun plus an all around great guy! I wouldn't hesitate to sign up for one of his classes.
If you're old enough to remember the restroom scene in the movie "Freebe and the Beene" Denny's version on 5 pins with a pair of model 29's from the hip is something to see.
