    Judging from the distinguished medal of your avatar, I'd guess your no stranger to precision pistol. My sons and I are kinda new to this sport. The 11 year old is getting the courage worked up to shoot his first match. The 18 year old is likely to be sharpshooter after only 3-4 matches and I'm pushing expert. We shoot competitions in Austin and Houston primarily. We'd love to visit your range some time.

    Are there any internet or telecommunication companies in the area? I know about ViaSat, but that's it...

    Looks like they just have a business office out there. Closest operation center is in Georgetown I think.

    At this moment, there are only 2 public places to shoot nearby:
    - Champions Firearms: This is an indoor range at Holleman/Texas. They offer "Happy Hour" half price range fees. I want to say it's limited to 45' and they restrict the calibers you can shoot: no centerfire rifles and handguns are limited as well. There's an attached gun shop.
    - Gunsmoke Shooting Range: Outdoor range on the way to Snook. Take HWY 60 headed west and keep an eye out for signs once you pass HWY 50. Haven't been out there in a bit, but I beleive they offer 2 pistol bays, a 100yd rifle range and shotgun facilities.

    Merry Christmas to all in Aggieland. Weather will be weird, but I'm really looking forward to a (relatively) quiet weekend focused on family.

    I didn't realize it, but The Great Texas Gun Company on 21 out towards Kurten closed sometime in the last few months. Additionally, Gun Corps (Southwest/Texas) announced their closing up shop too.

    No word yet on Marksman Academy reopening.

    Not the best time for shooters in the Brazos Valley.
