Possible to do "BLM-style" shooting in Central TX? (Public land)

    Hell lots of indoor & outdoor ranges can now handle your AR15 pattern rifle simply because there is not public land in Texas for you to do so on. Then again range fees might be something else you don't want.

    The OP's now on the FBI watchlist...

    Good thing the red flag laws haven't reached Texas.

    You go back to a place where the state gave up rights to its land to pay off debts to join the union.

    Or you buy land in the county not subject to a HoA, ETJ, or or county restrictions.

    The restrictions (if any) are based on where it is and what (if any) municipality controls it. What county it's in, etc. Don't believe it when someone tells you that you must have at least 10 acres to shoot on your land in Texas ............ not true.

    Edit to above post. I live on an acre and one half. I'm in a subdivision in the county. We have a good homeowners association, in my opinion. We have restrictions that we cannot hunt and they ask not to shoot firearms if at all possible. Occasionally someone will shoot a snake, skunk, etc. but very rarely. It's a very workable situation. Actually, even in the city limits of Kerrville it is not illegal to shoot a gun (bullet cannot leave the property).

    I guess it depends how far you want to drive and how much you are willing to pay. But as someone said it is probably cheaper to join a club. I bought 25 acres for 70k. Even at $2,000 per year that is 35 years of range fees, not to mention annual taxes etc. So monetarily you are better off joining a club or going to a range.

    There you go with the absolutes again. Kaufman County passed an ordinance that you must own 10AC min to shoot on your land. Because one nutcake that liked to shot all the time only had 8AC. I don't think they enforce it as it hasn't slowed him down.
