    What days do you have in mind? Do you want tactical training? Pistol / Long Guns?

    First of all: The trip is not until january or february (freq. flyer miles).

    Im been shooting pistol for 4-5 years now, and now I have the change to spend some air-miles. so why not spend them on shooting ??

    Im looking for 2 things for my trip:
    Serious training for PPC1500 and some IPSC/TDSA.
    Try out some calibers that are banned in my country (maximum is 9mm or .357).

    So basically a good shooting-range, a "hardcore" instructor and the ability to rent equip. The US customs are a bit strict about importing weapons :-)

    Regards Carsten/Denmark

    Hi Carsten. Good to have you here! Unfortunately I don't have the answers you're seeking, however we do have a number of people that are a bit more into various marksmanship competition groups. Hopefully someone from Dallas will respond that might be able to better answer your questions.

    PPC1500 <-- here's what I found. It's a Precision Pistol Competition, evidently.

    Apparently PPC1500 is a mix of Bullseye and IPSC type shooting and can be fired with either revolvers or semi-automatic pistols.
