Houston, Texas

American Shooting Ctr.
Address: 16500 Westheimer Pkwy, Houston, TX 77082
Phone: (281) 556-8086
100,200,300,400 and 600 yard rifle range. Pistol,trap,skeet and sporting clays.

In my opinion the staff need a lesson on customer service, they can be snobby at times, but the range and facilities are good. They do not have patience with new people coming in asking simple information questions. They have less patience with new people to the shooting world.

Re: Houston, Texas

James is about the only guy who seems to care. One day I called them to make sure they were open. Drove from Conroe and about 30 min into my shooting session the range officer said he needed to change the backer boards on the three hundred range, said it would take him till dark! Fortunately I spoke with James and they gave me alittle more time to finish my session. Granted I was the only person on the range but I would not have driven all the way across houston to go shoot at 100yds. Excellent facility but I always call to make sure they are open. Some days they require a certification card to shoot at 300+ ranges so be prepared. When I did mine in 2000 they required five for five shots in the white bull of a 300 yd target. Just depends on their mood and no steel. clay or intermediate target backers. If you want to shoot 100yds go back to the 100 yd range [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

LWolken,
Terrible management excepting James.I really like him,but his hands are tied by the guys that set policy.I feel bad that James has to put up with the decisions that come from upstairs.
I bought my Beretta O/U from American because of James and his excellent help.

Re: Houston, Texas

Jimmy,

Several years ago I spoke with him concerning the ownership of the gun range. I believe he said it was owned by the county? or City? but had several managers who made the decisions concerning policies and daily operations. I was wondering if they could be shut down by pressure from all the development in the area like the range which once operated at 249 and beltway 8. Anyway until then it is a great facility to shoot at. Matbe I'll see you at the range some day.

Re: Houston, Texas

Well, I am glad that I was not misinterpreting the place as far as the people. I have never been asked to qualify on the three hunderd. I will be moving to shooting the three hundred and four hundred yard ranges next. Once I start consistantly hitting on the four I plan to move on up to the six. Are they going to make me qualify to move up the yardage? How do you get the practice to shoot that yardage if not at a range?
