I would love to fire my FMJs but I have 800 rounds of Brown Bear steel case JHPs through my AR and she eats it like a champ, so I can't bitch too much. Take care and watch your six.

    Range fees at Elm Fork are $15 (http://www.elmfork.com/rangefee.html). Fees at DFW are $17, which is not that different and you get a bit of A/C.

    A quick call to Elm Fork would resolve the FMJ matter quickly (They are closed Mon/Tues, so I can't call out there now).

    I've got a bunch of survival guides on my Kindle, so I'm ready for an EMP.

    I guess I was reading it wrong. It looked like it was saying that Paper targets were $15 and $120 for 10 rounds of shooting, I knew that couldn't be right. Thanks all the same rudy99.

    Gibsonís Outpost & Shooting Range, 123 Lawson Rd, Mesquite.
    Not the best place but its close...Crabby old couple owns it. They have 10, 25, 50, 100, and 200 yrd targets. You can shoot anything but .50 cal.

    If you call them the answer will be "no FMJ's."

    I would urge you NOT to call and ask if there are exceptions for obvious reasons.

    ETA: Rudy, I just read your earlier post on the tac range. I can't speak to the use of FMJ on the tac range, so if that was what you were referring to please ignore this post.

    I'm on the opposite side of town from everyone else (Benbrook, SW Fort Worth) but I share the same dilemma as everyone else. The best place I've found in the couple months living here is Tac Pro, but I haven't shot there yet. If anyone is a regular out there I'd be willing to meet up with a few AR's and ammo and run through a few drills.

    I'm up in The Colony. I do some intro to handgun instruction at DFW Gun Range on Saturdays.

    Best,

    I'm in Murphy (Plano/Richardson)

    I've been looking around for some good AR courses/enthusiasts/etc...

    Done a few matches with DAPS and thinking about hitting up Collin County IDPA.

    I'm having trouble locating a good local store myself. Targetmaster seems ok and friendly, but their selection seems limited.

    Bullet Trap is NOT friendly (a few staff are, I try and go to them directly), but has good prices.

    I'm still undecided on Gunmaster.

    TDSA is one decent range, but Len Baxley is nigh impossible to get ahold of. I've been trying for 2 months. There is Jacob's Plain Gun Club north of Greenville, I have not contacted them yet, but they hold alot IDPA matches and have tac bays. And the furthest away is Tac Pro out North of Stephenville in Mingus. Those are the only ones I know of that allow "tactical" shooting. I know what you mean about Bullet Trap, I refuse to go in there anymore. I've been going to the Garland Public Range just to at least get some rounds downrange and confirm zeroes on their rifle range. We need to get the DFW folks gathered up from this site and at least meet for a brew or six. Maybe then we could hash out some training dates or whatever. Take care and have a good one.

    I'm all for getting the local folks together. I'm in desperate need of some mentoring and basic guidance with my new BCM. I've hunted and been around firearms all my life, but the AR and associated thinking is a new animal for me. I want to take a training class soon, but I'm afraid I don't have enough hands-on experience to even show up for one. I can read and read and read advice, tips, instructions, but I could use some direct help.

    So, yeah, I'm in for a brew or two to discuss possibilities....I'm in Frisco, but no place in DFW is really out of the way for me.
