    Lonestar Range and Academy is open. Just a few minutes out of Liberty Hill. Plenty of pistol lanes, but kinda limited on the rifle range to 3 benches. 100 yard max, nothing over .308 cal. 10000 N. Hwy 183.

    That's the way it is. Your bullet can't go past the fence to the next property. Before I go out to shoot I have a safety lecture with my bullets reminding them not to cross the fence line. I don't think I have had any refuse to obey the rule. Of course, I'll never know.

    Heard a reason for BOTW closing from a friend of the family.

    The family had 900 acres for sale next to the range (that is their land too). The buyer didn't want to have the range next door and was claiming breach of contract. Instead of losing the land sale or fighting lawsuits they decided to just close the range.

    What I heard anyways.

    Makes sense since nobody wants to publicly admit greed is the reason for doing something like this.

    Shit for a 900 acre sale, I can't say I really blame them.
