There is an indoor range called Red River on the Parkway in Sherman but no other public ranges in the county.
There was a place in Denison but the let the lease expire and the neighbors bought it out from under them. Ralph's Range was shut down for political and surrounding growth reasons. :rules: The little range in Fink is gone also.
Anyone know of any other ranges o[en in the county.

My money is on people having contacts with people with land.

Why? Because the potential incremental profit of operating a range vs other possible land uses is not worth any potential liability or regulatory headaches.

But I'm thinking that might have been a rhetorical question....

You just need to call and make an appointment. Been there once, good range, hopefully will grow and get more areas setup. Real friendly people. I do suggest going.

Also, if you're into matches, there's a range called North Texas Shooters Association that is a private range, but they do have matches every Saturday where guests are permitted. There's a iron sights only carbine match this weekend. Not Grayson, but kinda close.
