MONTROSE, Ia. (WGEM) -

A local gun club has expanded to meet the growing demand, especially with younger people.

This year, the Tri-State Gun Club in Montrose, Iowa spent $20,000 on a new skeet range. That's in addition to its pistol, rifle, and trap ranges for shooters of all ages. 

Gun club leaders say they're at 700 members now and expect that number to grow. 

"The directors of the club have been attuned to the wants, needs, and desires of the shooting community," Dave Hunold, Gun Club President said. "As funds allow and we had a little money, we decided that we should offer the shooters something more." 

To become a club member, the fee is $45 a year.

Leagues and practices begin on April 18.
