    Well El Paso Texas will see its 3rd indoor gun range open on the 2nd of January. That gives us the 3 indoor gun ranges and 3 outdoor ranges. Don't ya just love it. I do.

    Everybody in town is now minutes away from a gun range.

    There is one opening in Frisco, Tx ( north of Dallas) that is making the claim that they will be the nations largest indoor range.

    Does anyone have an inside scoop on this and when it's supposed to be open?

    Over near Basset and Celo Vista malls. It's called Gun Central. On Gateway East.

    I miss the days when there were few gun ranges, but there were still plenty of places where we could still go shoot. If we could just get all those Damn Yankees (and their descendants) to go back up north where they belong, maybe we could get back to that level of population density.

    Yeah, I know -- wishful thinking. Next thing you know, I'll be expecting our politicians to be fiscally responsible. Expecting such a thing is probably an early sign of age dementia. :(

    I remember when there was nothing but sand out on the North East side.
    My uncle took us out there to shoot once. Good times.

    I was told they were open but I can't be 100% sure as I haven't personally been there. The good thing is we really don't have to travel very far to shoot like others. We are blessed to have the options we have here.

    I had figured that there was enough desert around El Paso that you didn't have to travel far to find empty land to shoot on anyway. Back in the old days, we would just find an old dry creek and shoot there.

    Problem with going into the desert these days is you don't know who you will run into or who is downrange. So with that in mind I limit my shooting to the Rod and Gun Club and now this new range on the west side of town.

    Well the new range opened this morning. There are 2 separate rooms with 7 firing lanes each. The lanes are 25 yards deep. I can't wait to feed a couple of the full auto's that will be available for rent soon. They were well stocked with ammo and even had some AR's for sale. Ammo prices were quite reasonable.

    I'll admit the cost of membership was higher than I thought it would be, about 2.5 times that for Ft. Bliss. I am waiting for them to get settled in so I can try renting a few things, the FA is something I want to try at least once.

    I know what you mean about the full auto. I'm quite sure I will treat myself to a few rentals.
