Is there any place I can check out a schedule for upcoming courses?

Their website seems to have some pages that are down at the moment.

Hey Zone,

Yeah the website has been down for a while because they have a new one in the works...you can contact the owner, Matthew Brockmann, through email to get on the mailing list for upcoming classes.

where is CSM Bell's Ranger Range located...never heard of it.

04-11-11, 22:11
Its a little west of Katy...maybe 30 mins outside Katy on some land owned by a former Army Ranger. He has a house on the property that is used for lodging and he comes and cooks three meals a day for us there...the price of the class covers all of this.

hey Ironman how'd the class go...would like an AAR to kinda get a feel for the training and range.

Hey Big 54r, sorry I've kinda been neglecting this thread...

I can do an AAR sometime in the near future, but I need to find some time...right in the middle of finals for college...yeah it sucks!

More info about the range though, it is a little further west of Katy than I remember...it is actually about 20 mins south of Columbus...but still not too bad a drive, especially if you car-pool.

The range itself has had some additions like pop-up targets and turn targets. The berm is shaped like a "U" so you can do "180 degree battlefield" drills when you are inside the "U"...which is what we did in a drill with the new target system...very cool! And eye-opening! (I'll cover it in the AAR :D).

Also, don't know if I mentioned it earlier, but you can shoot easily back to the 100 yd line and somewhat back to 200+ (there are large oak trees throughout the property, so you have to pick your lane carefully when you go further back)
