Looking for a place near Forney.....within an hour drive....with a rifle range 50-1000 or close to that.

Poetry Gun Club is out. No steel and after a conversation with the owner Iím not sure I could spend an hour around him.

Went to B Tactical this week but only goes out to 400yds.

I donít mind paying a premium price(not quite willing to pay Rockwall Gun Club prices) and I donít mind joining a club.

Lonestar gun club and redneck resort on Lawson Rd. is trying to get going but having some legal issues, and it flooded during the heavy rains. Up to 600 yards...

From what Iíve been able to find out....they are closed indefinitely. No one answered the phone all week and no one has been at the shop the 2 times I tried this week.

I was afraid of that.

You donít know where Forney is do you???

Your best bet, and where I go is to Wolfe City. Private range ran by FiremanJG on here. Or Jacobs Plains in Greenville, I havenít been there yet but they hold matches out to 1100 yards.

Yep, firemanjg's range is the ticket for lowest price with at least 800 yards. Jacobs Plain goes out to 1100, but it is membership only and costs a good bit more I think. Neither is a bad option.

Is Jacob Plains still open? I have called the number listed on their website several times and cannot get a response.
