Anyone personally know of an open range?

God has blessed me and my family such that I can still take some time away from this craziness in mid-April. After all, given the times, marksmanship might be an important skill. Not to mention the stress relief.

Anyone personally know of a range in Ellis, Hill, Johnson, Navarro counties that you expect to be open 4/11 - 12? Outdoor preferred so the long guns can get some desperately needed use. Will consider expanding to Bosque, Limestone, or McLennan if need be. All in the urban counties seem to be closed. It would be helpful if they also have ammo so I'm not using from my stash. :)

I'd extend an invitation to make it a group event but, you know, that social distancing thing.

When this is in the rear-view mirror, I propose a huge get-together where we can bless those who have just gone back to work. Some sort of picnic, range day, tour, meals, fun (long) weekend. Spend, donate, and tip so America gets back going again. :patriot:

If you're willing to come a little east, Big Rock Gun Club just north of Eustace is still open.

You need a member to bring you and its 10$ per person, unless you want to join and pay the annual fee.

540 Yards max range, though. Some consider that too short to warranty the drive.

PM me around that time if you're interested.

My backyard is open. Country life is great.
