    I know there are a few threads that have ranges in this particular area, but with as many people on here that came from ar15.com, I figure some of you have to know where to go shoot.

    I have almost bought an AR-15 about 20 times in the last two weeks, but every time I change my mind because I have no idea if I would ever find a place to even shoot it.

    Any recommendations from you AR-15 guys?

    I'm in Lewisville. I figure there has to be something around, or do you guys just buy the hollow-point?

    They allow FMJ rifle ammo. I shoot my Garand, Mauser, and Mosins there all the time.

    The range it's self is not bad. I am very disappointed they charge more for the 200 yard range. Be advised 1.Dont bring your guns in the office/store (you might shoot them) 2. the owner's son runs a ton of business away. Very poor customer service on his part.

    Years ago the manager of the Garland range told me that their insurance required the ban on FMJ rifle ammo. I can shoot my Thomspon and M2 carbine on the pistonl range with ball ammo(semi only), but can't shoot ball on the rifle range with the bigger berm. Go figure.

    The Elm Fork Range on Luna Road in Dallas now allows FMJ - or so I was told.

    Approximately two weeks ago, I took a AK there to test fire. When the clerk asked what type of rifle, I told him an AK in 7.62X39 but that I had hollowpoint ammo, not FMJ. He said FMJ was now permitted so long as it was not military surplus, probably meaning steel core. I replied good because I had several hundred rounds of Wolf FMJ and he said bring it on out.

    However, just to be sure, it wouldn't hurt to call before going.

    If someone does call, let us know what you learn.

    That us what I was told also. No steel core, but FMJ is fine.

    DFW Gun; although, an indoor range, allows FMJ.
