    Houses being referenced for others people safety. If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it does it make a sound. Is what I’m getting at I guess.

    Fossil Pointe in Decatur, Tx is the closest 200 yard range. $18/day for pistol and rifle. Around 50 miles from Frisco, at least from my part of Frisco near Hwy 380. But nice drive in the country.

    YMMV, 200 yards ain't long range as most big game rifles are zeroed this range, (there's an 800 yard range off my back porch here on the farm and a private 1200 yd. down in Lufkin, 30 min away, sorry neither close to where the OP is located).

    FWIW - DCNatForest/Kennard, Tx is quite a ways from Frisco......

    Should've mentioned, Fossil Pointe also has 800 yard range for $35/day.

    I'm going to have to visit them. I've got a lot of FMJ ammo that I never shoot since usually not allowed. Per there website:

    What Distance is available? Up to 25 yards for pistol and 50, 100, 300 and 400 yard for Rifle, 300 and 400 require you to pass a qualification test and cost $5 in addition to the regular lane fee.

    FMJ allowed? Yes, Full Metal Jacket ammo is allowed on all ranges and up to 50 BMG for the 50 and 100, nothing larger than 30 caliber rifles allowed on the 300 and 400 as these are steel targets

    Most people don't realize that there are several private 1000 yard ranges in the state. They're generally only open to friends and for one or two matches per year, but they exist.

    There is a private range just south of Lake Ray Hubbard. It is called the Lonestar Gun Club.
    LoneStar Gun Club <sales@lonestargunclub.com>
    Their membership is relatively inexpensive. They have an archery range, pistol ranges, shotgun ranges, and a 200 and 600 yard rifle range.

    They even have a club house with a retail gun shop. They also regularly host club events.
    The Frisco Gun Club has a 50 yard indoor range.

    The land values in the Frisco area prohibit any type of large outdoor range scenario. If you could find a piece of unincorporated area and started shooting, the police will quickly appear and explain the error of your ways. A word to the wise...
