    New guy here, just thought I'd give a review of the range @ the East campus in case anyone was unfamiliar with it (did a search). I know I'd never heard of it till recently. Located on I-10 East, Eastlake exit, in the Law Enforcement bldg. http://www.epcc.edu/CampusMaps/Pages/MissiondelPaso.aspx

    Excellent facility, friendly staff, free targets, loaner ears/eyes if you need them, and it's dirt cheap. $15 for 8 visits, $30 for 40 visits. Can shoot your pistols/rifles out to 25 yds, no armor piercing/green tip ammo. No reloads, factory ammo only.

    If you are LE, active military, or have CHL, can walk right in and use the range. Otherwise you have to attend the Safety/Proficiency course given 1st Saturday of the month. Free, just bring a pen, can use your weapon/ammo, or they use Community College's .22 Rugers/ammo, also free (for S/P course). Call in advance to register. 831-7117/7118

    Hours are 5pm - 10pm weekdays, 9am - 4pm weekends, they start to clean up about 1/2 hr b4 closing. Best to call to make sure range is available, cause sometimes range is tied up for other uses. 831-7113 or the other 2 #s.

    Sounds like a good time. I just have a problem with no Class III stuff and no reloads. From what I understand, those are their rules. It would be great for the summer, when it is over a 100 degree's here.

    I just never understand why these places make up the rules they have. The indoor range I use to go to in Phoenix use to let you shoot whatever, except AP ammo or larger cal.'s, over 30.06. The reason for that, is because their backstops were not rated for those rounds. I get that, but just to ban suppressors, full auto and reloaded ammo is just senseless. What "harm" can a suppressor do to the range ?

    That is fine with me though. They can keep their rules and I will keep my money and shoot elsewhere.:fighting0010:
