    Not too sure, but I cannot shoot at Carters, went there the other day and I guess I am just too tall, not to mention the other shooters were... lets just say I felt safer in Iraq, and the per gun charge... we could always talk to the guys at Shiloh, but I dont think they will let you sling your lead there, Hot Wells, any other ideas? I am thinking the first weekend in November...

    I would prefer NOT shooting at Hot Wells. Guess being shorter has some advantages as I can shoot under the pistol roof overhangs at Carter's with no problem. Any local private outdoor ranges available thru courtesy of a member there?

    I am not a big fan of the regular range at Hot Wells, but I get to use the "special range" so not so bad.... Private range may be our best bet. Any one got ideas?

    I'd be up for something, I'm 6'4" and I don't seem to have any issues with the range at Carters. Other than the per gun charge:(

    I have not shot at Hot Well's "special" range yet though.

    The way to deal with Carter's per gun/per shooter pricing format is to just take one gun on each range trip. Pay your one time price and shoot as long as you want while concentrating on that one gun. Then next trip, take another gun. This is the approach I have used for years.

    For those who are bothered by the roof overhang on the pistol range, simply pin your target to the bottom portion of target wire. This should give you plenty of room to shoot under the overhang without interference.

    There is Gun Emporium on 2854 west of Conroe or Thunder gun range south of Conroe...Anyway I'm not a big fan of Carter country per gun chg. When I go to shoot my GF and I bring several weapons, and the cost really adds up...just my 2cents worth..

    Doesn't Hot Wells charge a per gun fee? I am pretty sure that's how they charged me the last time I went a month or so ago. And I know ASC does the same thing.
