    April 1st is right around the corner, so lets get this going! We tried a new range last meet and it wound up working out pretty well for us. For those of you who missed out last meet, here's the details:

    Texas Star Shooting Range
    860 Co Rd 3384, Kempner, TX 76539
    http://www.texasstarshootingrange.com/

    Directions from Copperas Cove:

    Take 190 to E Ave D (Turn right at the McDonalds/CVS) / follow E Ave D to N 1st Street and take a right, crossing the railroad tracks / go to the first light and take a left on W Ave B / follow W Ave B about 7 min (4.3 mi) / veer left on Oak Springs Road (there should be a white sign with a yellow star and TSSR on the star) (Watch your speed, stay in your lane. It gets very tight and there's a lot of drivers who fly around the blind corners) / Follow Oak Springs Road, following the TSSR signs at each intersection / Turn on Joes Way, again following the TSSR sign / Joes way will eventually come to a fork in the road. The fastest way is to veer to the right, but the road just loops around to itself, so you can't really mess it up. Joes Way will lead you right to the range - can't miss it. This trip is Honda Civic friendly. Motorcycles not recommended due to loose gravel on one small section.

    Rules:
    No Tannerite/.50/.338/Steel Core
    Safety will be observed at ALL times. This means hearing protection and safety glasses on the line, chambers open on the bench, guns pointed downrange at all times, no handling weapons during ceasefire, if anyone calls a ceasefire you will lay down your weapon until the ceasefire is cleared. ANYBODY CAN CALL A CEASEFIRE.

    Amenities:

    -There is an area for people to camp. It's literally just an open field so bring what you need.

    -Pizza is not normally delivered to this range. However, the managers brother is the manager at Dominoes and can make a delivery happen for the group. Get with the manager (James) of TSSR for details.

    -The berm was recently renovated to NRA standards. It's wide/strong enough to drive a bulldozer on top of and it's 20 ft tall. You'll notice the dirt behind the targets is different from the main berm itself. The dirt behind the targets is rock free to help prevent ricochets.

    -TSSR is insured and has a document stating so at the front desk.

    -TSSR has a general first aid kit on-site as well as a bullet wound kit. On top of that, the owner and manager are both formally trained in treating bullet wounds. As an absolute worst case scenario, there is an area designated for a medical airlift and the range has a number directly for the local airlift.

    -They have two restrooms.

    -They can reserve up to two bays at a time if we are having a competition, but only for the duration of the competition. All of their staff are NRA certified range safeties, but if we have any of our own who could help with the competitions, that would be a big help. Please speak up if you're NRA certified and willing to help out.

    -Steel targets are onsite, and we are allowed to bring our own. If we bring our own, then they need to be completely up against the berm.

    -There is an archery area so feel free to bring out your crossbows. Maybe have a crossbow competition???

    -The skeet area uses a variable range thrower. You won't know where the clay is going until it's already out. Think you're good?? Step on up!

    -Full auto is allowed

    Cost for all this goodness:
    $10



    Please keep the chatter down in this thread. I'll go start a new one for general range day talk. Use this thread for gathering a headcount.

    As a new guy here, I'd love to come, but considering we are having a baby Monday morning, I'm out. Maybe I can make the next one.

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy shoot....what a ride!"

    That probably qualifies as an acceptable excuse.
