    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Austin and I am actually the Administrator on another Congregate Media (owners of this site) run site, BayouShooter.com, based in Louisiana. I just accepted a position with a company in the Dallas area and will be moving there in the middle of next year (2018).

    I know near nothing about the area as I have only been to Dallas once, but I definitely am looking forward to meeting up with some local shooters from the area and hopefully finding a nice range to become a member at. If anyone has any advice, please reply here, PM, or email me (Austin @ the domain I mentioned earlier.com).

    Once I move there, I'd love to meet up with some of you guys. Also, if there are any good trainers in the area, I like to take classes as frequently as time allows. Oh, and any restaurant advice is a major plus too!

    Best,
    Austin

    Oh great, just what we need...another car in the way during rush hour!

    Welcome anyway.

    Depending where your new work location is, we can probably make recommendations on housing locations etc.

    Thanks! Hey, at least it isn't as bad as Houston!

    It's looking like I will be working and likely living in the Irving area, specifically.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm up in Frisco which is due north of Dallas. You'll probably notice a difference in the ranges in the area, at least north of Dallas. More expensive, FMJ not allowed and etc. I eventually found a range I like Decatur, TX. Fossil Pointe if a haul but I like the range for pistol and rifle. But being in Irving puts you in the middle of the metroplex which better than my location. I think better ranges are located to the south and west of th metroplex. Good luck on your move.
