Where to shoot-EP Far East
Hello, I just moved to EP Far East area three weeks ago. I am interested to either join a club or find a nearby area (Far East) where I can set up steel targets and IDPA targets for CHL pistol draw practices. Thanks.

BGGlocker, literally anywhere east of Loop 375 away from homes and new development is where most eastside people go (especially those that choose not to pay the ROD and GUN range fees).
As for me, I take Pellicano as far east as possible until it turns into a dirt road. Once that dusty road ends I take a left (north) and get to my spot near a large sink hole/crater on the left beyond the Transmission lines. You can't miss it since there is a large hill/berm off to the left about a 100 yds. Once there, as long as you don't shoot SW towards the concrete plant about 2 miles away you should be good to go in any direction out to 1000 yds if you like.
There is another spot that is completely cleared of mesquite a few miles north of this spot, but it takes a few more zigs and zags on un-named roads for me to describe how to get there. I set up my silhouettes for in close CHL practice there. The clearing is about the size of 3 football fields placed side to side and is recessed roughly 20 feet below the surrounding desert. It becomes a mud pit during heavy rains thus if it has rained recently it may not be the best location. But the closest home to this area is beyond 6 miles in all directions except the west."Never surrender your weapon to anyone who desires to see you defenseless and dependent upon the establishment for your well being." - ME!

Well, from between a rock and a hard place I too would be curious.. lol
Best place of photos from around town can be found on google my friend, I don't have any photos worth looking at to share that don't have my bearded mug in them.
In short, the east and west sides of El Paso feel like new urban Phoenix, while central and the lower valley areas are an aging tribute of the mid to late 20th century.
Great town, nice people, weather and quality of life (to raise a family) exists here. For those that mock our city, they do so because the night life is not as great as other places and not many big celebrity groups/people come here as often. If you like booze and partying on a nightly basis, this isn't the place for you. If you like food and the "screw you, I'm a Texan attitude" then yea this place is it."Never surrender your weapon to anyone who desires to see you defenseless and dependent upon the establishment for your well being." - ME!

Sadly, the historic saloon building is now a cheap dollar plus discount store that sells cheap Chinese junk. That place must have been rockin back in the day, because if you look at the top of the saloon there were rooms for rent just above.
I work literally 2 blocks away from El Paso Saddlery off Yandell. I recently picked up a #44 outfit for my new Pietta .45 LC revolver. The greatest thing was that they measured me there and the manager/owner went to the back and had extras that were exactly my size waist and 4.5" barrel length revolver. It was a quick in and out for me, and since they were customer cancellations I got them at a HUGE discount. If I were to walk in there now there would be a bunch of customer cancellation rigs on the front desk selling for a fraction of what they cost online. Two weeks ago they had a 1911 IWB RH strong holster for $35. Now that I think about it, I may just walk in there this week and pick it up if it is still there."Never surrender your weapon to anyone who desires to see you defenseless and dependent upon the establishment for your well being." - ME!
