If it's in the middle of West Texas, not that much to me. If it's a hour or two from the metro mess, now we are talking. Set up, targets, shooting platform, etc. Need more info.

If you are considering buying an existing range, make sure to have a real environmental assessment done.

Some older ranges have some very serious groundwater contamination issues and the liability for cleanup costs can be shockingly high.

If you are thinking about staring a new range, make sure to work with a lawyer to setup some very solid business barriers to limit exposure to personal liability for environmental contamination and cleanup costs.

This definitely is not a DIY create a corporation from a $99 online form type project.

The NRA has some good information on this topic. They even have a team that will go to work for you, you provide the money.

It gets expensive real quick. Dad wanted to start a gun range when he retired, but he was looking at and easy $500,000 and that wasnít even for a 1000 yard range

I would be curious to know what the insurance costs (including liability) would be for a business to operate (insert any city or county). Hypothetical...20 rifle lanes, longest out to 1,000 yards, trap and skeet fields as well as 20 pistol bays or lanes.

Depends on how it is set up. A public range is going to be costly. A club range is more affordable. Thus the reason myself, and many others require a qualification prior to being cut loose on the place.

Triple C would be the closest example to DFW I believe. Out to 2k for $50 a visit.
