    Welcome, MP and Glockamolie. Resident of the Golden Triangle here, but I do listen to Houston radio quite frequently. I am a 1911 man myself. :D

    59 gun range (indoor range on 59 north of the loop) is open later and might be cheaper. It's no good for rifles though.

    do you have the name of the place or a number? i work right down the street from there (59@west airport) if they open early i could go right after work (i work nights and get off at 7am) that would be a great way to let off some stress after work :D

    I usually get most of my stuff from Carters Country, Collectors, and Gander Mountain. Mostly stores, the gun show here is pretty small, and nothing good.

    Welcome to THR from another H Town resident!

    I'm still looking for the perfect gun store in Houston! I have yet to find it! Reliant Center usually has the biggest gun show around here. It's put on by the Houston Gun Collecter's Assoc.

    I second the M&G proposal!

    I was looking at Carters country in spring, they are pretty high , I still am surprised that Houston being as big as it is, doesnt have a high volume gun store.

    I have posted this before, not to complain all the time, but I could buy guns cheaper from a store in Boston that sells in this format.
