Nice! What part of town are you in? I normally shoot at Backwoods Traps in little elm... but would make a trip to GP. Been thinking or arranging a littl mini-dwf-arfcom shoot. We need to do that.

Oh, and welcome!

I just mentioned garland public shooting range because they have a rifle range up to 100 yards and are close to were i live but they dont alow fmj in rifle calibers.. But maybe thats a prob at all the local ranges unsure anyone know about bullet trap or some of the other local rifle range rules?

thanks

Almost all N. TX local rifle ranges do not allow FMJ.

Bullet trap is indoors, expensive, and loud. Good winter/rainy/pistol place.

Collin County allows FMJ, but has some difficult hours.

I dont do a lot of blasting.... so the no-fmj doesnt bother me too much. Most of your good accurate ammo is HP anyway. But I dont like the rule... thats for sure.

Welcome aboard GITrinec!

As an FYI, BT has dropped their prices now so it's actually gotten cheaper (at least for us pistol folks). I go in there with some of my CCI Blazer stock and spend only $5 as a member for range fees. It's now $12 for non-members versus the old $17 price, Friday is a good night to go as only one person pays and all other immediate family members shoot free on the same lane. It is loud but it's very local to me and cheap and I just got into shooting again, so I can plink all I want with my pistol. Not sure on the FMJ for rifles, I can verify next time I'm there if it will help anyone.

Haven't been to CCGR yet, have to get a chance one of these Saturdays to get up there. Kind of stinks the hours they have though, wish it was a bit more flexible but what can ya do.
