For $325 in Minnesota, you can pretend to kill Osama bin Laden, just like a real Navy SEAL

If you’ve ever wanted participate in an exciting Navy SEAL black-op mission, but were held back by the years of grueling and dangerous training, Larry Yatch of New Hope, Minn,, has got a deal for you: for just $325, you too can pretend to kill a top Al Qaeda terrorist.

Abbottabad? No, it’s New Hope, Minn., where participation in a make-believe SEAL mission is yours for just $325.

The raid that killed Osama bin Laden provided a lucrative business idea for one former Navy SEAL, who is now charging $325 per person to reenact the covert military operation.

Over the past four month, 137 people have signed up to clutch paintball guns and pretend to be highly trained Navy SEALs sneaking into a compound in Pakistan to kill a bearded man in a white robe.

The high-end roleplaying game is held at Sealed Mindset Firearms Studio, in New Hope, Minn. The re-enactment of last year’s daring raid was the idea of owner Larry Yatch, a retired SEAL who told Minnesota Public Radio that the game isn’t simply for entertainment but also to teach people self-defense.

“It's the people that maybe might be a little intimidated around a gun or don't necessarily feel comfortable having to fight with someone, those are the people who we can make the biggest difference in their lives,” he said. read more & more pics>>>

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
