My comments: Everyone has said that area north of Dallas needs a long range to shoot at and now we have it! Realistically, this is as close to DFW as a new 500 yard range can get. Go and shoot!

Well after reading the range rules it is not for me-----thought we had something for a minute. Might be good for those just starting out.

As close as it is to me, I'm definately going to check it out. That's only about 20 miles from my house.

looks like tac pro in mingus is your kinda place and not much farther from you.

for DFW gun ranges this range has many features that other ranges do not have (like fmj allowed, steel plates to qualify and goes past 100 or 200).
and is the closest to dfw that has 500.

have been out the past 4 weekends and it has only been open for 4 weeks. word is spreading online and owner says he has shooters ready to go at 9am on Thursdays and Fridays (traditional workdays).

Owner lives to shoot and has built range literally next door to his house.

I drive 45 min each way and it is worth the drive.

The owner's name is Terry, and he's very accommodating. I've only been out there once, but it's going to be a nice facility. The only drawback is the shooting table. All of the tables are on blocks, on top of gravel. They aren't the most stable platforms, and it's hard to get the right height on a chair to get set up behind the rifle. Beyond that, it's fantastic.

Owner says the pistol bay construction should begin this month. Scheduled target date for completion Jan 31st (if everything goes well). Do not quote me or hold me to any of this. Just wanted to type up what I remember in conversation. Having pistol is a great thing.
see website before you go and I recommend you calling.

FMJ only on 100 yd ranges 1 - 6. Berm work on rifle range photo below:

Businesses normally just do not open with everything completed on opening day.

Range construction is ongoing and handgun ranges are to be added. This is great news!
