    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


    March 22nd - Sunday

    11:00 AM

    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 (pistols only), 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!

    We'll double check on the bbq pit, but heck yeah! Worst case scenario if the pit will already be in use downtown Lockhart is close by and there is plenty of great bbq there.

    I was at LSGR this morning. It was pretty empty, but hella windy outside so I didn't stay very long. It looked like they are building some new burms there on the North side - I wonder if that is going to be for the NFA range (rumor has it Matt is going to add that).

    Also, everything is still dirt. I was talking with Matt a while back and they need grass seed but it is $$$$. If anyone knows of some real cheap, or better, wants to donate, PLEASE DO!! :)

    Also, I will remind everyone - LSGR has lots of RR Ties setup for wood framed target stands. They do not have a lot of target stands handy, though, so please make/bring your own. You can take some scrap 1x2 or even 2x4 I believe, and make a square with two legs. Then staple/nail some cardboad or plywood across it, and staple gun some targets to that. It works great and helps improve the range if you don't mind leaving it there (I usually take mine home because I want to further examine my shot patterns).

    See you guys on the 22nd!
