What is Lone Star


Lone Star is an outdoor firing range located near Lockhart, TX. for long-guns and pistols.

Lone Star allows drawing from holsters, rapid fire, drills, etc. so long as you are safe. FMJ is allowed, but I am not sure about tracer, AP, Incendiary. Best to leave the fancy stuff at home so we don't set the range on fire, literally.

Full auto is not allowed due to berm constraints. Other items such as SBRs, SBSs, suppressors, etc. are allowed. Be sure to bring your tax stamps!

Everyone needs to see aboutr getting a female shooter to come. This reporter is female and would feel more comfortable with some around. She also needs to see that it's not only the guys in society that like to kill paper.

We need to take it easy on her and let her and her husband watch to see if she wants to shoot anything in particular. We need to get him to shoot a little bit. He's probably anti-gun as well.

I think it's important to help them both understand that all anyone has to do is follow the four golden rules, and there will never be ANY accidents/negligence with firearms. It seems to me like a lot of people that dislike firearms, part of the reason why is they seem to feel as if the firearm is almost like dynamite and could just go off at any time. I think it would go a long way towards easing people's fears to help them understand that four simple things will prevent any accident from ever happening.

so this is an education day for this reporter lady but surely there will be fun and education for "us" as well, right? i am new here and have never attended a "meet and greet" before. i am expecting a pretty laid back environment with lots of different types of people there for a common love for firearms, but what else is to be expected? am i to understand there are only a couple shooting lanes? can we pull our trucks up close for tailgate storage or prepare a large range bag for moving guns around during lane sharing? i dont know maybe i need to search for something about previous meet and greet happenings for a little more heads up of what to expect. thanks ahead for any info.
