I recently relocated not too far from the Shoot Smart range in Fort Worth. Going to check it out this weekend. Does anyone have any experience with them?

I used to shoot there all the time before I joined Arlington Sportsmans Club. It's a nice little facility with a good group of folks. The best part is, it's usually pretty empty so in addition to no wait, you don't have to worry about having an idiot shooting beside you.

If they had skeet, sporting clays, 5 stand, archery, and metal plates I'd still be going there.

Good to know, Scary, thanks.

From looking online it looks like a good place to practice pistol since they have the private lanes. I do wish they had something longer than 15 yards, but oh well.

Drive a little farther to somewhere that's a little batter imho. I can't do the indoors ranges. Elm Fork goes to like 40 or 50 yards I think and it's outdoors. You can breathe while you shoot

for pistols it is a great range. The private booths let you draw from holster and shoot at any speed you want. 90% of their staff is awesome. If i'm just going to shoot my pistols I go there over any other range in the area

that's what is appealing to me too. I unfortunately don't have any land (yet), so it's hard to find somewhere to practice drawing from concealment with live ammo.

I've shot there a few times and thought it was pretty pricy. Nice range and staff though.

There was one guy there when I went and he was an absolute Rick with a P. Otherwise, the female working up front was sweet as could be. I hate when people think they can treat customers like that. Plus, I'm just not a fan of indoor ranges.

Time I have been there was real good. Great for pistols. Nice too if you are bringing the wife or kids. Climate controlled, nice. If so use one of their private areas. I think you can put up to four people in one private lane.
