    Frisco here. Mainly go to garland public due to proximity to the house and cost. Anyone know a closer range? I shoot an AK74 and a Sig 522 and a cz 85b.

    I can't help but notice on the shoot smart website, the cycling images on the main page show a pic of a boy holding a handgun, being handed a magazine, with his finger on the trigger...

    Bullet trap in Plano is a good range.

    Likewise, I spend most of my time at Denton County Sports. They have an excellent facility for CHL's to improve their skills.

    Although 'Palace' may be a slight exagerration.

    Cleburne, Grand Prairie but want to move back to Irving here.

    I wish that range on Division in Grand Prairie had been open when I worked down the street just east of there; I would drive right by it on the way home and we were all looking for a place to go shoot at lunch. Oh well.

    Alpine was OK for me but Elm Fork is my new home. My brother-in-law and I do the awesome sporting clays course(s). Read somewhere the course was ranked second or third in the country and I can tell you it's nice. They have all the shotgun sports: trap, skeet, ATA, wobble trap, 5-stand, sporting clays and practice stands. It's 467 acres. Here's their website: http://www.elmfork.com/

    50 targets on the sporting clays course is $26, but you end up paying an additional $10 for the golf cart. highly recommended, check out their site!

    They're big on women's sports, too.

    I do most of Elm Fork's graphics on their 4 wheelers, shotguns,golfcarts and cars.

    The facility is Very nice and they are dedicated to what they are doing over there

    Fort Worth has a few different ranges that I visit - took my chl class at On Target (good prices for chl and range use). Not a fancy place but they have what I need - an indoor range lol. Shoot Smart look promising and may end up heading up that way this weekend. Alpine is okay but not a big fan when I was there a few years ago.

    Side note - Shopping wise I love the fact that Cheaper than Dirt is here off 820/35w and they allow you to shop off of the catalog while in the store (at catalog prices). That and Cabellas has just about everything else.

    Oh man I love Lake LBJ. My grandparents lived in Kingsland, I had some great summers down there! I remember when Marble falls only had a dairy queen.

    Grand Prairie here.

    Been shooting every Sunday at Great Southwest since they opened. Nice folks running the place. Would like to find and join a private rifle range, preferably one nearby and with longer than 100 yd range. Need to get my long range rifle skills back and practice for Garand matches.

    Agree that the GSW peeps are top shelf. It's not a real big place, but they'll let you shoot like a big boy if you ask nice.

    We do CMP matches at our range, Haltom City Rifle and Pistol range (http://www.haltomcityrpc.org/). After what I did last friday with my Garand I might compete in the next one.

    I have a friend that lives in McKinney and wants to find an outdoor range with clay throwers (not formal skeet/trap) that's closer to him than Garland. Anything up thataway?

    If somebody would build a 100 yard INDOOR rifle range up here in DFW they could be a millionaire in about five minutes. Yeah I know the ventilation system would cost an arm and a leg and the building would be the size of a football field, but how many people in this thread alone have mentioned they are looking for a 100 yard range?

    Just my .02,

    I would be willing to pay a small premium to shoot at 100 yards indoor (avoid the heat and wind amongst other things). A football field however is pretty long and have an enclosed area that long and quite a bit wide is a bit of a challenge :D
