Texas Gun Range Cleared To Open With Big Win

I don't see this reported anywhere else:
In Allen City, Texas, a new gun range almost didn’t happen. Residents who lived near the range opposed it. The planning commission voted to recommend denying approval for the project. That meant the city council would need a supermajority vote in favor of the range to be able to open.

Things just didn’t look good, but then…

Woo Hoo and close to me. I can almost throw a rock to Allen from my house.

I would love to but that’s when the PPM at DPC is scheduled. Grandkids have superseded a lot of range time lately.

I just wished there was an outdoor range close by. The closest one that I know of near Frisco / Plano is in Mission Gun Range in Whiteright Tx. North East of McKinney... You have to be a member though and schedule your range time. They don't have anyone there to mind the range. You use your code to drive through the gate and go straight you your range. There are 3 large ranges that you can have 5 - 8 people on at one time. Great for group competition's. One of our church group is a member and we get to use it when we have a competition range day..
Beware of Dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I presume you're looking for a rifle range. If so...

Garland Public Shooting Range has 50 & 100 yard distances.

B-Tactical Is located right on I-30 outside Caddo Mills. Their rifle ranges go out to 3 or 400 yards.

They both have pistol ranges, too.

Heads up on Garland Outdoor. It's $15 but on your first visit it's $15 more for a 10 min video to safety certify you for the range.
