    I'm with you. The owner seems busy with other stuff, but she's got steel, 200yd range, lets me shoot however/whatever I want and when it's all over she always has a cold beer and a warm bed for me ;)

    Yup. in 2015 they weren't doing that as nothing was posted. I had people here from out of town so we did it again in 2016 (Nov). Drove all the way out there and BAM sings posted everywhere NO FMJ. WTF? So we shot out pistols, returned a bunch of stuff we had bought in their shop, packed up and left.

    Cross Alpine off the list.

    Then we drove the two plus hours back in traffic and construction. Got to another range that I told my guest was GTG and was treated like shit by a power tripping RO.

    I would love to have a place here that has an organized way to look up ranges that have updated info. Would be thrilled! to participate in that forum!

    Defender Outdoors is by far the best range in terms of quality in fort worth. They let you shoot FMJ (no steel cases I believe) but they charge 25 bucks an hour for an 85 yard rifle range.

    They also have the nicest gun range I have ever seen and a multi million dollar facility.

    Was laid over in Rupert Idaho getting a trailer repaired and went to their range. Totally free and even had a RO meet me out their when they weren't open to the public. Very nice range and a laid back RO. The city/county even gives free CHL classes at the range to county residents. Totally blew my mind the way things were run there.

    Wish there was something like that within 100 miles of me.

    Neat. Never heard of it. Will never shoot there. I have my own multi million dollar range (Frisco Gun Club) that charges $17.50 on half days (not sure which one they are of the week anymore) that is INDOORS at 100 yards. Lot's of fail at that part of the range and too much to list. Pistol range is better.

    I had taken my guests out to Alpine bc we are shotgun shooters too and they have a couple traps out there. So we "were" going to shoot everything and drop some coin there for a whole day. But when we saw their new rules we packed up and f'ing left pissed off never too return.

    I get it but Frisco is like a 75 minute drive with no traffic for me. Unfortunately anything East of Arlington or North of the metro is too far of a drive.
