    I dropped by the Elm Fork range this past weekend while out running other errands and noticed that a lot has changed since the last time I was out there. Anyone here know anything about the new management? Is this a decent place to shoot these days? One thing that I noticed that I really liked were the steel plates they have set up for the average joe like myself to use.

    I don't know if they have new management and / or owner. Their website is up but still under construction.

    I might give it a try since they have plates - always fun to shoot those!

    Thanks for the info.

    Last time I was there and shot was late 06 or early 07.

    I went there last Sat with a friend (her first time to shoot). Way too busy
    for my taste. I've never seen it so filled. All those booth were new to me.

    Might be fun with less people. With a new shooter I did not want to take any
    chances. If it gets good and cold (less people) I'll give it a try.

    Yeah, that was one thing that surprised me. The place was teaming with people, and that was just the rifle/pistol range. Didn't make my way to the shotgun side, but I heard a lot of boomsticks going off over there.

    Oh, and I was hesitant to mention the plates only because I don't people to start going there all the time so I can go and not have to worry about other people. ;-)

    Was there some kind of grand "re-opening" or maybe a competition? I'm with you, though, too many people at the range and I'll pass.

    Thanks again for the info.

    They were giving out $5-off coupons at Market Hall this weekend too.

    I believe there's some new management, with the Tiger Valley guys running the competitions there, and more new things to come. There's a long thread over on the hometown Texas forum of ar15.com.

    I haven't shot there in about 15 or 20 years. The people who used to run the place were not interested in my and many other business. They had a poor attitude, and it was not a fun place to shoot. I would hope that they do have new owners. That was a good place to shoot. And, being in the river bottoms, it may be there for a while longer.

    Check out the Garland Public Shooting Range. I was there Dec. 1 2007 for the first time and I was impressed. Was a nice day & not crowded. Reasonably priced IMHO. $20.00 first visit - $10.00 there after. $10.00 lifetime membership fee that does not expire until you do. Take your own skeet to use in their spring fed.
