    TopShotGunRangeTexas.jpg TopGun.jpg Top Gun Shooting Club 500 yd range opened north of McKinney. Website is not up yet.
    Spread the word! If you know LEOs, Clubs, Iron Sights, 1800s rifles, Steel Target shooters and anyone else... this is the closest 500 yard range to DFW area.
    =====
    527 P R 462 Leonard, TX 75452 (23 miles from McKinney).
    214-799-3357
    Google map link and GPS coordinates below.
    =====
    open Thurs, Fri and Sat 9am to Dark
    open Sun 1pm to Dark
    =====
    I went out on Friday, Oct 8th, the day after it opened. 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500. It is great!
    New members need to hit 8" steel plate at 200 before you can go to 300 and then hit 8" steel to go to 400 out to 500.
    FMJ allowed! No steel core or tracers. Again, FMJ allowed!
    Iron Sights allowed (Terry, the owner loves 1800s rifles and iron sights)>
    Largest rifle they will allow is a .416 mag
    Currently is rifle only. Owner wants to go with pistol and cowboy action shooting (something he does) but needs to plow current revenue back into the range.
    =====
    $20 a trip with no membership and $15 a trip with a membership which is $40 a year

    Everyone has said that the area north of Dallas needs another range and you have that range NOW!
    Again, I have heard and made comments that the area north of Dallas needs another outdoor range and now you have it! Go and shoot there!
    Before anyone complains that it is too far... realistically, this is as close as a new range is going to get! Is in Fannin County (not Collin) and allows FMJ and goes to 500.
    No matter where it was built someone will complain that it is too far but dont do it here
    A guy who loves shooting built a big range on his property next to his house and wants to build cowboy shooting and bays and a buncha stuff once money comes in.
    Something that we have wished for has come true. Lets go enjoy it.

    That may make me change my mind on the rifle I was contemplating.

    What are facilities like? Covered? Shooting benches?

    I might have to join and make it part of my practice. I really hope they don't put in benches. I want to shoot from real shooting positions.

    right now, they have temporary benches with a covered awning. lanes 1 and 10 will let you shoot prone. owner is serious about upgrading facilities when the money starts to come back in that he has invested.

    if you prove you a good shooter AND the range is not busy, the owner MIGHT make adjustments if you asks and he see you know what you are doing or he gets to know you (this is my opinion... not a fact. owner is on top of stuff so you might ask).

    benches do not look sturdy from afar but when i was shooting I was in shock and awe of the way everything was sturdy and unmovable.

    go and shoot there! they do not have pistols yet but owner is serious pistol shooter and has the land and expertise to add these.

    is easily worth the drive just to shoot fmj long range without a hassle. and to hit steel plates. and we need to support this range.

    call owner and ask. I have read on other forums that they are nfa friendly.

    tell owner what you have and based upon what I have read the owner would be ok.

    see website class 3 is ok.
    . Owners of Class III firearms must be in possession of any special permits or paperwork required by law.

    I agree. This range is not what you are looking for. If you have friends who are looking for this, copy and paste website into email and send to them.
