So I pass by the old Collin County Gun Range outside McKinney every evening, and I've been seeing some renovations going on. They've put a new roof on the building that's closest to the highway - a "rustic" tin roof out of used tin, with the porch posts replaced with rough-cut cedar. Looks like they may have much more in the works - there's a lot of lumber leaning against the wall on the porch, including a couple of new doors. The trees on the property have had their dead/low hanging branches trimmed and stacked. There's signs of the main building having a little bit of work going on, too - though it isn't the current focus of whatever work is going on.

Anyone know any details? Is the range coming back? Or is it being converted into some other kind of commercial venture?

Thought the city closed it down due to the airport. Don't get up that way often so keep us informed. We can hope.

Well, crap. The sign has been (poorly) re-painted to read (and I quote):

BUILDING-MATERIALS
now-open

So, no hope for the gun range. Looks like they're selling salvaged building materials. Apparently out of random piles deposited in the parking lot. Lovely.

Popper, yeah, the city used the airport as a flimsy excuse to shut down the gun range but a guy can hope, right?
