    Pretty sure ETTS requires a 60 dollar a month membership to shoot anything over 200.

    "Our 1200 yard range with scattered steel in 100 yard increments is only available to members."

    It's a really nice range though. If it weren't for a (understandable in the case) caliber limitation I'd pay it.

    Fossil Pointe up around Decatur, Tx allows them. There were 5 or 6 shooting there yesterday on the 200 yard range. $18.00 a day for pistol and rifle (50, 100 and 200 yards). The long range cost more when open. I did 3 Gun yesterday afternoon and had a blast. 50 mile drive for me from Frisco.

    When you say long range, it's 200+ yards?

    Fossile Pointe is +200 but the long range part is not always open and you must qualify at 200 first. Call for the details.

    At Fossil Pointe, the normal rifle ranges are 50, 100 and 200. They have longer ranges but like Recoil45 said you got to qualify on the 200 before you can shoot on the longer ranges. I think the cost for the longer ranges are $35 when open. $18 a day for shooting on the pistol and normal rifle ranges.

    I need a range to do some quick zeroing and I think Elm Fork is my only real option (I'm passing through town - location is important). I'm going to ask about the pistol grip thing. That's bonkers.

    Speaking of commie. Bailey's in Houston in no mags in rifles. 1 round at a time. Ever tried that in an ar15 sitting at a bench?

    Regarding pistol grips not allowed on Elm Fork's 100 yard range, I wonder if they are referring to AR15 Pistols? Surely AR rifles and precision bolt action rifles with pistol grips are allowed. Here's their published rules for the 100 yard range. Item number 4 is the one in question:
    • NO – Full Metal Jacket, Steel Core, or Military Ammo on the 100 Yard Range
    • All Rifles must be scoped. NO RED DOTS (3 power or greater)
    • NO – 22 Long Rifles
    • NO – Pistol Grip Rifles or Short Barrel Rifles (barrel shorter than 16 inches)
    • NO – Pistol Caliber Rifles
    • NO – Rifle Cleaning at Bench (Unless approved by Range Officer)
    • NO – .50 BMG
    • All actions must be open when gun is not in use.
    • The muzzle must always point DOWNRANGE:
      • – when removing or putting gun in case.
      • – when loading or unloading.
      • – when closing the action.
    • Always post target at the bottom of the backer board.
