    Ive never been to a range before but Im planning my first time out. Im trying to figure out how much to plan to spend. There is a $5 new person fee, $12 to use the range, $15 to rent a couple guns ($10 for the first one and $5 for another one), and then the ammo. Im going to be renting a couple 9mm handguns to get a better idea of what I want to make as my first purchase. Also should I call ahead just to make sure they have ammo to buy or do they pretty much always have a supply of the more common kinds of ammo?

    Definitely wanna call ahead and ask. The ammo prices vary for each range. Sometimes, you can wind up paying double for ammo.

    What range?

    And usually you need to use a ranges ammo with their rentals, not to be discouraging, but the price is the price. Once we find out the range we might be able to help you further.

    Plenty of guys here go there, I am sure one of them will have an idea on ammo cost. You may have to give it a little but someone will know.

    I've only heard good things about the place and I just looked at their rental list and there looks to be a few guns I would like to shoot side by side as well. Might have to plan a trip up that way.

    How long is a string?



    I would suggest doing a pre-range purchase.

    A couple of us will be there this weekend. Check out the Austin hometown thread.

    Sent from the Bacon isle at your local grocery store.

    Several months ago I paid $32.00 for a box of 50 PPU FMJ ammo since I ran out and I was not ready to leave. I don't know if the price would be the same if you rent a gun. I imagine you will be spending over $100.00 Min if you get 2 box's of ammo.
    If you have never been to a gun range before do check with their personnel about the range rules and do practice gun safety since you may have other shooters within 1 1/2 feet of you.
    You will enjoy shooting at a range.
    :cool:

    Only been there once. Decent place. The staff was great to our party. Can't help you on the ammo though, I never saw the prices.

    Just a small tip - their target holders are in the tan shipping containers. Just stroll over to a container and pull one out.
