    Steel targets?
    Had an opportunity to do so while on vacation a few weeks ago.
    And found it to be very satisfying..lol.
    I know Magniola misfits...but anywhere else?
    I also remember reading about that you used to be able to shoot at Sam Houston forest? Is this true and why did they do away with it?
    Sorry for all the questions ..lived here in Houston gun free for the last ten years and now that I'm back into the hobby trying to gather as much info as possible.
    Thanks in advance!

    You're going to have to be more specific...

    Pistol, rifle?
    Close range, long range?
    Standing, sitting, prone, benched?

    I shoot steel all the time, but it's smallbore and air rifle silhouette. That may be completely different from what you're looking for. Some people shoot steel gongs at 1,000 yards from a prone position with a bipod-based rifle. Again, that may be different than what you're looking for.

    So, what are you looking for?

    Both Pistol and rifle.
    Pistol out to 50 yards ..rifle out to as far as I can shoot..lol.

    I'm in Spring (99/Kuykendahl) and it's better than Hot Wells or ASC. Won't even mention that garbage Carter's Country. Blackwood is nice but cost and limited to 200yds and paper only. The fact that Trinity is priced per/person with no time limit and not per/gun. I don't foresee me visiting many other ranges locally except a closer indoor range for a quick pistol/rimfire shooting.

    Someone has surely asked, but ....where are you from? You cite distance as a problem.

    Spring near porter.
    We've been going to Trinity but someone keeps breaking their pistol steel target shooting them with AR pistols.. .556 green tips.

    Just went to Trinity today. Yeah... Asshats buy that 62gr online because it's cheap and don't know what they bought.

    Wow. I hope the range catches them in the act and makes them replace the targets.

    Timely bump on this thread as I was just wondering this myself. Cleveland is a little far to travel from Fort Bend County but maybe worth the trip once just to see what it's all about. I'd love to find a place to shoot things like concrete blocks or watermelons also but I understand nobody wants to put up with that mess.
