I'm getting warmed up with my new AR-10T, it's the first time I've had a rifle that can shoot decently at long range, been looking for somewhere to shoot it at. So far the only Houston-area ranges I noticed that seem to have ranges past 300 yards are the American Shooting Centers one out around westheimer and 6, and I found on the web (but haven't check out) PSC down in Freindswood. Any other places you guys know of?

as you know, ASC has a 600 yd range.

nothing else close.

Yeah I took a peek at the long-range end of ASC a couple days ago on Sunday. There were two guys doing benchrest stuffat the 200 yard range, and it was empty from 300 onwards. I'm kinda wondering if the range officers run that side with the rest of the range (handgun, 50, 100, where all the customers are usually at), or if with so few people it's just kinda "the three guys out there agree to call a ceasefire and go for it". especially as there's a berm between the popular ranges and the 200+ stuff.

I'm gonna go check out PSC this weekend I think, although it's a private range with a gate code, I figure someone will let me look around on a busy weekend day. Whichever I pick I'm gonna end up spending a lot of time there, just trying to figure out my options :)

I hear you have to qualify at 300 before you can move further on.

Not sure what the process is for that though.

I have 100 and 200 off the back porch.

I have 500 in the back yard.

I will have more when it drys up and I can get a dozer in there.

Get a special target from the range house. Shoot 5 shots in about a 4 inch group in the center mass then show it to the people at the range house.

Sounds fair enough, we'll see how long it takes me to get there, I'm gonna hit the 300 yard line for the first time this weekend.
