Welcome to the area. I live in Pottsboro and work in Sherman. Redriver Firearms is the only indoor range in the Sherman/Denison area. There are three outdoor ranges within 70 miles of Denison. Check out these websites:
Mostly I shoot to amuse myself. Long range pistol with contenders and such, so I'd like to have access to at least 300 yrds. Lately I've been shooting alot of trap/skeet/sporting clays as well. Looks like there are several opertunities to keep me shooting.
Tom Bean (Ralph's Range) · Website: none
· Phone: 903-546-6524
· Address: FM902 and Joe Bob Road, Tom Bean, TX
· Hours: Any Reasonable Time
· Fees: $3/Hour
· Highlights: Basically an open range with a 12 foot high 50 foot long berm. Has target stands for 1x2x8 posts (you bring 1x2x8 posts to tack targets to), Anything legal is allowed (speed shooting, holster draws, FMJ, AP, Tracer, Title I/II, .50 BMG, tannerite). ~120 yds max range.
From Bulldawg's site. Just an update, no tracers because of fire danger, no bumpfiring, and small tannerite charges please.
Red River Arms seems to be ok. I like the owner, so far. Mostly, folks around here go out by Randall Lake Rd (near Lake Texoma) There's a place where folks shoot out there. Drop me a PM with your ph# or email. If I'm still around here in March, I'll show you around and maybe introduce you to a few friends that shoot. I MAY be moving to San Angelo, though. I won't know for about a week or so from now.
This place is a diamond in the rough. Shot my CHl quals there twice and have been to several AR15.com shoots there. Nice range with a small crowd. If there are more than 10 shooters on the line at a time it's a bit spooky just from a logistics standpoint. Nice place to go shoot by yourself. (which will be about 90% of the time)
It would be a nice place for this group to shoot sometime. Contact Ralph at the numbers in the contact info or Cockandlocked at AR15.com.
Hi. New here too. Found this site Googling for the Tom Bean range I keep hearing about. Im from Denison and usually drop the coin at Red River Firearms. I live on the same side of town as Randell Lake Rd, I never new people shot out there though. Might swing by next time im out.
I only shoot handgun. HK USP .45... Price of Blazer Brass, with 15 or so bucks at RRFirearms taps me out sometimes. Cheaper dates with my USP are a plus.
