    Alright guys. I called Matt and he is cool with everyone coming out. If you are not familiar with Lone Star, they have two pistol firing lines with yardage varying to 25 Yards, and one 100 Yard Rifle line. They have plenty of parking at the entrance.

    When


    October 25th - Saturday

    Range opens at 9 AM and there will be a 1 Hr. CHL qualification starting at 1 PM which will occupy one of the pistol firing lines.

    We are planning to arrive at Noon, shoot and chat, then head to Blacks BBQ afterwards for dinner.

    Cost

    There is a $5 registration fee for first timers. All-day shooting is $12. 1-year memberships can be purchased for $65.

    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!

    I'm a new member to the forum and was wondering if that's enough to go to the meet & shoot? If so I'm in.

    I'm planning on being there pretty much all day. I'll probably get there around 11am or 12pm or so.
