Texas Hill Country Ranges

Texas Hill Country anons, where the fuck do you shoot in this area that isn't full of stupid fudd rules, and goes past 100 yards? What the fuck. How can a place like the Texas Hill Country not have any decent private clubs, or even decent public ranges? Please, help.

        I don't believe it goes past 100, but the Bulverde range didn't have any gay rules last time I went.

          Cedar Ridge? Stops at 100 but it seems to be the most based. No bi-metal/steel core rules and can use your own targets.

              That's what their rules say on their website anyways. It's the closest range to my new place.

              Been meaning to see a IDPA match at Cedar and check the range out. Hopefully not fuddly or rando mall ninja saturated. Ideal range: follow the rules and leave me alone

              Well there you have it. If they host IDPA matches they can't be THAT fuddy/bad.

                No, it's why I stopped going to any range. The idea of paying money to have some retard babysit me while I just try to sight in a gun is beyond annoying.

                RifleGear has a great indoor range, but the ammo restrictions suck. Which is why I'm currently building my own outdoor range.

                My club here in Houston is great. As long as you sign in, follow the few rules there are, and dont shoot our steel with steel core or penetrators, literally anything goes. I didn't realize how good I had it. I may just end up coming back to Houston on the weekends to shoot.

      Like said, buy some land or find somebody who owns some who'll let you shoot on it. Land is kinda pricey right now, because of all the doctors and lawyers looking for private hunting/shooting grounds, but the way things are going, there unfortunately may be a lot of farmland going up for sale within the next couple years as a result of the drought and the fertilizer shortage.

      Luckily I bought a bunch of land and I can shoot whatever I want since it's 50 acres+. I have been saving pallets to build targets for a 100 - 300 yard range. Would love some videos/tips for setting up a range.

        wtf you must be driving like an absolute moron because SA cops don't give a fuck about traffic violations.

        I once bought a car of CL and was driving it home w/o insurance or registration of course, passed a cop in a school zone that I didn't realize was active. When they checked my license the address on it was more than a year out of date which is illegal and I got off with a warning. That's literally the only time I've been pulled over there.

    Fuck off I don't need any more dumbasses like you coming to my range and not being able to read the directions. I swear you idiots go off say you followed the directions and then get passed when you're not allowed on the range because you clearly didn't follow the procedure. How fucking hard is it for you to read and/or follow directions. All you have to do is say the color in the middle of the safety rules and hold up the number of fingers it tells you to at the end.

                I used to shoot pistols at a stack of logs on a half acre that backed up to 200 acre field before my neighborhood started to fill up. Local sheriff dept okayed it.

      OP here. I've lived here all my life and grew up hunting in the Hill Country. I was really shocked upon my return to the area to find all the ranches have been sold off and turned into subdivisions. I've shot at a private club south of Houston for about 14 years now. I'm planning on buying some land in Edwards county eventually, but where I'm moving to that'll still be a 3 hour drive. Worth it to not deal with fudds, and other fucking retards though.

        Pretty much all land on earth was ocean floor at some point. But no, the sea fossils are way below you were probably just finding old snail shells.

          I didn't lol. As soon as they showed me the rope, I left and got my range fee refunded. The rope was so short I couldn't even stand while shooting.

    Anons, if I started a private club in an area central to Austin and San Antonio, would this be something people would be interested in? The ONLY good range in the area?

    I'm in the DFW area. I just want a range that lets me shoot my cheap FMJ .308 and isn't indoor. Is that too much to ask?

      Yes, which is why I have to drag my ass an hour out of town just to go shooting...

      The only non-gay public range I knew of in DFW was out in Crowley, and I think the Pandemic killed it. My buddy loves B-tactical out in Royse City. He claims they let him shoot from his truck at the private bay. Sounds based, but I haven't been there yet myself. Royse City is like 90 minutes for me which is a bitch.

    the fact people in the current year still dont know about the few great places to go mean you shouldnt bother being told the answer.

      OP

      Thanks for the insight anon. The fact that I now pretty much know about every fucking range from Kerrville to Bastrp, Jourdanton to Waco and they ALL FUCKING SUCK means your standards must be pretty low as to what a good range is, so you're right, I probably don't want YOUR answer at this point.

    Not "legal," but wonder about six shipping containers 3x2, sound proofed inside, ventilation fans, lighting, and stops downrange. If you had say five acres how long before they shut you down?

    Ranges don't generally allow rapid fire because dipshits send rounds to the moon trying to be Rambo.

    For every one competent shooter there's a dozen newbies and five fucktards that do stupid shit.

    My grandparents lived a mile away from a popular range and a round took out their A/C unit ... another went through their window.

    This is why good ranges get closed down.

    Buy your own land, vet everyone, or find a more private range that has standards.
