I am off Wednesday and Thursday.

I'm free either of those days. I have no preference on where. I usually go to "A Place to Shoot" or "The Bullet Hoe." Do you know if you can shoot at Camp Bullis with a military ID?

Bullis should be good as I thought you need a military id to get in.
Never shot at the other places. Let's aim for Thursday.

Is registering the weapon a Bullis requirement?

I've never shot the range outside of my unit. But I did find this information on another site.

What type shooting will they let you do at Bullis? Is it strictly off the bench?

No, I am not from San Antonio but I have an uncle who lives there and when I would visit him when I was a kid we would always go to "A place to shoot". Nice range, I remember it being hotter than hell out there but that was probably because it was summer :p
Is there still a gun shop out there? Has it gotten any larger? I remember rifle/pistol/shotgun (skeet towers). Just wondered if anything else has been added. Its been 25 years since I have been to that place. Have fun, wish I could go but it would be one heck of a commute.

They've temporarily closed "A Place to Shoot." Apparently a stray bullet hit someone at a neighboring golf course.

Sorry to hear about that, I hope it turns out ok for both parties. There is a range up here in Central Ohio that had the same thing happen, some stray bullets hit a couple of buildings belonging to a large and powerful corporation on an adjacent property. The corporation sued to have the range closed permanently. Last I heard, the range was dismantled and the land was sold off. All it takes is one.....:cray:

Battelle. They are HQed up here in Columbus. Not really a "products" kind of company if you know what I mean. Lots of contract stuff. Mostly Government.
