    A while back I swore I'd never go back to Red's in Pflugerville, and having read other comments in the time I've been a member of this forum, I wasn't alone.
    So I felt it only fair to Red's to say I've changed my opinion of them.
    A couple of weeks ago or so, I ended up needing to get two rifles on paper at 25 yards, so I reluctantly went there.
    Gotta say, it was a good shooting experience. Everyone there was friendly and treated me politely. Even when I inadvertently screwed up (rifle pointed downrange but upwards towards the target cables, trying to read the scope reticle dial with old eyes), their RSO politely corrected me and was friendly doing it.
    It was pretty crowded with a lot of shooter's friends/family behind the line by the time I finished, but considering it was a Sunday... understandable.
    It's about a hours drive for me from Rockdale to get there, but when I need their 100 yard range, I'll go back.

    You didn't mind the percussion? Last time I was there is was like getting slapped in the head every time a round went off.

    I doubled up on ear protection... plugs and muffs, so it was bearable.

    Lol, yeah. I did too. Ear plugs and muffs. Barrel comps really rocks the place.

    I experienced an indoor range the other day and realized I needed better ear protection.

    Haven't been in Red's in 15 years at least. Last time I went in the noise, concussion was terrible. Oh well.

    This last trip to Red's a couple weeks ago made me realize I need an ARC membership

    Red's has been on my no-go list for a long time for several reasons.

    Red’s is better that it used to be. I believe they improved the lighting and air filtration.

    I still won’t go when it’s busy, but they’ll get my money when I don’t want to drive to liberty hill.
