    The Bullet Hole is hiring. We are looking for 2 people to work in the office on weekends and one person to be a Range Officer on weekends.

    Here is a little about the Bullet Hole and what is expected.


    --------------------------------------------

    This could be the opportunity you have been looking for but please read through the qualifications and understand these are not suggestions before you make that call.

    Bullet Hole Shooting Range in San Antonio Texas(around 1604 and Highway 90) is looking for a few great folks. Bullet Hole understands that many of the gun shops and gun ranges of America have a reputation among people for lack of customer service and a friendly attitude. Someone considering employment at the Bullet Hole must know and practice every day, every time our unyielding philosophy and commitment to the customer, who is our most valuable asset. We are honored that our customers have chosen to do business with us and as an employee of the Bullet Hole you must be able to incorporate this truth in how you conduct yourself.


    The Bullet Hole has recently undergone a radical transformation and continues to do so. It is truly a dynamic range with features to suit and handle almost all the needs of the shooting enthusiast. With The only 300 yard rifle range in San Antonio, Pistol Range, Special Events Range, Carbine Range, Hogans Alley Range, Bianchi Plate Range, CHL range and dedicated IDPA/IPSC ranges (Yes these are all seperate bays). As well as a Shoot House under construction for indoors and MOUT style training. All Bays are or will soon have cover for the shooters or spectators. (The dinky office building is now dinky squared as it has been expanded)

    The Bullet Hole is also a full line gun dealer to include Class III weapons. Both sales and rentals.

    As an Employee of the Bullet Hole you will be working with a wonderful group of people in a friendly environment.

    A relaxed but professional appearance.

    You must be 21.

    Have a clean criminal record.

    Be able to lift heavy loads and work outdoors. (for the office, Ammo boxes and for the range outdoors all day)

    Have a good knowledge of Firearms. (dont apply if you dont have a good working understanding of most firearms types)

    Be people friendly and be able to always respect the customer. Retail experiance is a plus

    Have enough sense to know this is an environment that requires constant attention to safety and have the ability to treat a customer with respect when a correction needs to be made.

    Have the ability to deal with our valued customers in an honest and fair manner. Leave your ego at home and bring your knowledge....if you know the difference between those two, you might be the right person for the job.

    Now for what you will do....

    For the Office....

    The manning of the office, To include: Answering the Phone, Stocking product, Checking in customers, Firearms sales and any other needs a customer may have.



    For the Range Master....

    Keeping a safe firing line at ALL times.

    To help customers with problems they might be having.

    To keep the range clean, this includes the sweeping of brass and removing any other hazzards.

    You will, on occasion be the person who surpervises/instructs the rental customers, this includes a great selection of Class III weapons.

    To deal with those customers who are creating a safety hazard or are violating the rules. Even these customers will be treated with respect but sometimes an authorative position must be assumed.

    ----------------------------------

    All in all, it is a blast, You get your run of a great gun range. You get to drive the Kawi Mule all over the place. You get to shoot Machine Guns and you get to spend your days with some great people just like you who have a passion for shooting.

    Of course the question "HOW MUCH" well....not much, but it isnt minimum and with your proven track record as a member of the Bullet Hole team, it will be recognized (Read, you stick around and do a good job, we will pay you more).

    If this interests you and you are a good match, Call Michele at the Bullet Hole Wednesday through Sunday from @ Noon to 8ish. 210-679-6781

    And what is that supposed to mean? You have been here all of a few weeks and probably never been to the Bullet Hole.

    Wrong, slick. I've been here 55 years. Your requirements suggest you're trying to hire Lee Lapin. Your offerings suggest that you're lookin' for Barney Fife.

    I am happy you have it all figured out. First of all, most of our employees are retired people who love this job. Second, these three positions are not to replace anyone but are needed because business is getting overwhelming.

    Again, If your level of life satisfaction is such that this Job does not appeal to you, perhaps you should not worry about it.

    If you're looking for retired people you should've said so or at least somehow indicated that. Good grief.

    Because it doesnt need to be said and it is not a requirment. Active Duty Military, Retired people, College students, ect... Simply put, people who need a part time job or want one. All of these types of people work at the Bullet Hole. Some for over a decade and some for a short while.

    If you would approach the matter in a another way, I invite you to purchase or start a range that becomes the most frequented range in one of the largest metro areas in the nation. If you think this is a bad opportunity, I invite you to offer better opportunities to people who would consider or need this job.

    If you've been here 55 years, why haven't you learned some common couresty in that time period? No one asked you your opinion of what The Bullet Hole pays, and, guess what slick? No ones cares much what you think about it either.

    Maybe in your 55 years you haven't learned this, but places like gun shops and firing ranges run on a very thin margin of profit. They cannot afford to pay big bucks to all their employees. Instead, places like The Bullet Hole offer substantial benefits in the form of shooting freaking machine guns, for example. Sounds like a great part-time, weekend job to me.

    I would love to work there, but unfortunately I am in Indiana and moving to Montana in the spring. It would be good to work with what I love and with a "lanceman". We do have to stick together.

    Lindenberger: I find your comments rather mean. It is nice of that shooting range to think of offering jobs to fellow THR users. If I were a student or retired LEO living around San Antonio, I would be pleased to get the money, the experience and the fun...

    The Bullet Hole

    For what it's worth... I live in San Antonio and have shot at all of the public ranges is town, there at least a dozen. The Bullet Hole is one of two that I frequent. Michelle runs a good operation. It's a friendly place. The range has a varied catalog of shooting events available for shooters to enjoy from low intensity fun shoots to serious IDPA and USPSA matches.

    As a side note, the job requirements as posted, pretty much describe the folks that work at the range now. Can't see any reason not to want to hire more of the same.

    Michelle, don't hire any mutts and keep up the good work.

    From the description of the location, it seems you could walk west for about a mile and put the job on the bulletin board at Air Force Village II. There should be some retired folks there who know their way around a range, and guns, and who are experienced at giving and taking orders.


    Regards.

    First of all, I love shooting over at the Bullet hole. Sadly I live in Live Oak and its clear across town :( If I lived any closer I would consider it, but at the cost of 2 dollars and whatever the hell else they want to charge for it right now, it would not be worth driving over there daily or even just for the weekends. I frequent one of the much closer ranges, but they dont stay open past dark and its nice to go to the Bullet Hole everynow and then to do some nighttime firing.

    Heres a free bump for the nice guys over at the Bullet Hole, for those in the SA area or even Austin and happen to be down here visiting, its a top notch place to shoot. Sadly its just a tad bit too far down the road from I.

    BTW, Michelle's a hottie, ok nuff said, I better stop this posting right now :)

    Good luck finding some help, past few times I was out there it was uber busy, you guys definately could use a few extra hands.

    Working at the Bullet Hole isn't about the salary anyway. I worked there for a bit and didn't even think about the pay. The rewards are in getting to hang out at a range, meeting great people, helping new shooters learn the hobby, having Mack diagnose your shooting problems,getting paid to indulge your hobby, getting to shoot a wide variety of firearms, did I mention hanging out at a range?? I loved working there, I just don't have that many weekends available, plus I like to shoot on weekends:) If anybody is looking for a job that doesn't even feel like a job, this is it. Highly recommend it!!

    P.S. AmYisraelChai
    Haven't been out there in a while, tell Mack howdy for me and I think we still have a plate rack challenge hanging between us dont we??

    A range safety officer has a great deal of responsibility on his shoulders. He should be paid appropriately. I also noticed the post didn't mention anything about fringe benefits such as life and health insurance, paid holidays and vacation time, paid sick days, etc. If a business can't afford to provide those for its employees then it's a business in trouble. If the owners have those benefits and the employees don't then it's immoral.

    First of all, did you read the part about "Part Time Weekend Job" Second have you seen a negative comment from people who use or have worked there? We are not replacing anyone we are adding a little help because business is overwhelming.

    Again, If you have moral issues (***) I invite you to offer people better opportunities.
