    Hey guys and gals. I have lived in Dallas for the past 4 years and have been shooting at Target Masters in Garland. I really enjoy the place, even though it is a bit run down (they have been making improvements) the people their are great. I am about to move to the Mansfield/Grand Prairie area and with some searches and such I am thinking I will probably end up shooting at Alpine Range, I am planning to get out there in about three weeks.

    So where do other DFWers like to shoot?

    Normally Quail Creek, but I am interested in finding somewhere that allows FMJ rifle ammo.

    I've shot at Elm Fork and even with the construction, it's not bad. Some of the parts of the range are open. But it's been a while since I've been there.

    Been going to Quail Creek the last couple months. It's a lot closer for me and during the week it's great. Someone Friday told me how busy it is on the weekends. I'll stick with week days. :D

    Elm Fork has no rapid fire rule but it's lax. Quail Creek will jump on it pretty quick. You push the 2 second rule too much and they'll say something to the range. The RO at Elm Fork is usually shooting also, and he'll be emptying mag's in 3-4 seconds. :D

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    Garland public range for outdoors
    Bullet Trap for indoors

    I go to the Garland range more often, as it is a little close to home. Plus, I usually go with a buddy or two that likes shooting at Garland.

    No, Basspro doesn't rent, you'll have to bring your own I afraid. The ammo is expensive also, I usually stockup on 45 ACP range ammo at Wally World.

    Go to the Bullet Trap in Plano if you want to rent a gun, they have a bunch. There may be other places you can rent pistols, but first-hand, I only know of the Bullet Trap.
