    Will be moving soon and need recommendations. I've looked around a little and have seen some names, but wanted member's recommendations. Willing to drive out of town to Corsicana, Mabank, Palestine, Canton, Tyler, Jacksonville for a good club/range. Prefer outdoor but open to all suggestions! Thanks in advance!

    No one has any recommendations? Responsible firearm enthusiast in need of a new range. Willing to drive, just need a good spot (preferably without idiots muzzle sweeping me). Willing to sign up with a club or just use a local range. Please, any recommendations would be appreciated. Send me a PM if you want.

    Mabank has a private range called Big Rock Gun Club, but I understand there is a long waiting list for applicants.

    Dallas Texas or so
    There is a new club in Terrell or lake Tawakoni that is supposedly nice. Charter memberships available.

    So...any updates on ranges in this area? Surely Gun Barrel City has a range, right?

Open field for shotgun bring your own chunker and birds. Guests are allowed @ $10/day. You are allowed three visits as a guest and then must join. Not expensive, initial for individual is $200/yr, family $225. BRGC.net for more info

    On 64 Between Canton and Tyler you have Buffalo Creek. We have skeet, trap, five stand, wobble trap, pistol range 3 yd. 7 yd. 15 yd. and 20 yd. Rifle range 25 yd. 50 yd. 100 yd. 200 yd. 300 yd.

    Good info, Avvidclif! But I was told by one of its members that there is a long waiting list before one could apply for membership. Is that not the case any more?

    Forgot to say that in addition to what Avvidclif said, Terrell Gun Club has two 50 yd bays, a 100 yd and 200 yd rifle range and some 20-25 yd pistol bays. But like he said, there’s a long waiting list and you have to be sponsored by a member to apply.
