Hi there Arfcommers. I've been lurking for years and finally decided to make an account when I got down here so I could find out more about the area.

I'm a soldier who just PCS'd to Ft. Hood and I'd like to know where the nearest ranges are (to the ft hood/killeen area) and also what there is to do (outdoors type stuff) around here, and any other info I might need to stay out of trouble

Thanks for any advice, appreciate it guys.

I'm in DFW so no help from me, but welcome to the site.

Hicksville Gun Range is just north of there outside of Gatesville. JD and family are nice folks and they run a very nice range.

I already got hit on Business 190 west leaving post.

Apparently it goes from 50 -> 45 -> 40 . . . I was cruising at 55 and got hit for 15 over my first week here

Sorry about that.



I'm from Texas, and I hated Ft. Hood and the surrounding area. I spent my weekends home (Dallas) or drunk/passed out somewhere in Austin. If you ever make it up to D/FW, give us a shout.
