    Yep, those are all rapid fire, new shooter, and poor trigger control holes.

    Our 100-Yard range is covered in bullet strikes. Granted, beyond 40 yards, the pistol rounds have a habit of skipping into the ceiling.

    My 13 year old son, was pointing out all the bullet holes just 2 feet or less in front of us in the ceiling. We are by far not the best shots out there, but my boy can keep my Glock 23 on target on a B27 out to 10 yards. A guy in the next lane shot the target holder off the return cable as we were reloading. During his session, he must have hit the ceiling 5 to 7 times. I am glad that there are many new shooters and owners in this sport. Proper gun handling should be a priority to learn.

    I tried going there a couple of weeks ago. The sign said they opened at 10 on saturdays, but I got tired of waiting at 10:15. Do you know if they're still in business?

    Yes they are still in business. I just called them this past Sunday. I think they usually close at 7:00pm, but the guy who answered said, he was leaving at 5:00pm. I like this place because it's close to my house and i've never had any problems there.

    I've only known about them for about 5 years. A friend from Friendswood told me about them.

    I go to American Shooting Center quite a bit. They have a lot of people, most of them just bought a new gun and are trying it for the first time. The range officers are always helpful, and err on the side of safety. No double taps, no rapid fire, thats the rule. I say, no problem! With 50 stations, it is too much range for people to be rapid firing anyway.

    You know where to go to do the type of shooting you like to do. Don't expect every place to cater to your needs. Safety is the overriding concern at all of these places, because the amount of idiots exceeds the responsible shooters by a wide margin. If you witnessed the amount of rampant stupidity these guys see daily, you would become calloused too. Unfortunately there is no reliable barometer to gauge who is responsible and who is not. Because of that, everyone must be treated harshly. Sometimes mistakes are made, it is the nature of dealing with potentially deadly weapons.
