I joined this forum just to post this. From my post on another forum...
Top Gun Shooting Club 500 yd range opened north of McKinney. Website is not up yet.
Spread the word! If you know LEOs, Clubs, Iron Sights, 1800s rifles, Steel Target shooters and anyone else... this is the closest 500 yard range to DFW area.
527 P R 462 Leonard, TX 75452 (23 miles from McKinney).
Google map link and GPS coordinates below.
open Thurs, Fri and Sat 9am to Dark
open Sun 1pm to Dark
I went out on Friday, Oct 8th, the day after it opened. 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500. It is great!
New members need to hit 8" steel plate at 200 before you can go to 300 and then hit 8" steel to go to 400 out to 500.
FMJ allowed! No steel core or tracers. Again, FMJ allowed!
Iron Sights allowed (Terry, the owner loves 1800s rifles and iron sights)>
Largest rifle they will allow is a .416 mag
Currently is rifle only. Owner wants to go with pistol and cowboy action shooting (something he does) but needs to plow current revenue back into the range.
$20 a trip with no membership and $15 a trip with a membership which is $40 a year
On the way you can stop at new CTD location 380 and 75 in McKinneyhttp://cheaperthandirt.com/blog/?p=3478
2058 West University Drive
469 952 6200
Everyone has said that the area north of Dallas needs another range and you have that range NOW!
Again, I have heard and made comments that the area north of Dallas needs another outdoor range and now you have it! Go and shoot there!
Before anyone complains that it is too far... realistically, this is as close as a new range is going to get! Is in Fannin County (not Collin) and allows FMJ and goes to 500.
No matter where it was built someone will complain that it is too far but dont do it here
A guy who loves shooting built a big range on his property next to his house and wants to build cowboy shooting and bays and a buncha stuff once money comes in.
Something that we have wished for has come true. Lets go enjoy it. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v285/emailpwstuff/TopShotGunRangeTexas.jpg
