Gary SD Shoots for Tourism and Economic Development

Rule #47 for small town econoic development: know your market. News comes out that South Dakota saw a record jump in concealed weapons permits in 2009, and not a week later, what does the Buffalo Ridge Resort in Gary advertise?

The Concealed Carry Getaway Weekends, February 6 and March 27. Training, classes on gun laws, snowmobiling, coyote hunting, and ice fishing (no, you cannot use your firearm on the fish).

A lot of my neighbors may think Gary will be the safest town in South Dakota that weekend. The coyotes may disagree.

Of course, coyotes get a whole 'nother weekend in their honor:

Look out, varmints! Gary has an economic development plan, and it's target is you!
