I go to both. Quail creek if I'm shooting rifles tho. DFW gun range is pretty nice, little expensive but worth it. Lots of accessories, ammo etc.

I used to shoot at Quail Creek quite a bit, but after going to a couple different ranges I realized how much I hated the range jockeys over there (QuailCreek). I've pretty much given up shooting my rifles at the range and just take them out when I go out to one of my buddies land. The Shooting Gallery in Forth Worth is now my new favorite place, I haven't ever been to their rifle range, but their indoor pistol range is great.

That's the same feedback I read on another forum. Their wanna-be-drill-sergeant range officers bark around for nothing.

The last time I went that had changed. I quit going there for a while for the same reason. Now the only problem is no FMJ on the rifle range.

I know a couple of ranges are doing this now (and have been for some time). Anyone know of a range that still allows FMJ?

The Bullet Trap in Plano allowed fmj when I took my AR there at the begining of the year...don't know if they changed since they changed up the range with the new lighting and ventilation...

oh and their rifle bays are only 25 yards

Yeah, right across the street from it.

I think the address is 123 Lawson Rd. Not quite sure though.

I have heard too many people complaining about Gibsons. From what I have heard, the older couple and their son are assholes to everybody. Don't know that I would be willing to drive out there after hearing some of the stories I have.

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

I go to Gibson's. Yea, they can be pretty gruff from time to time. But once you been there a few times and don't act like an idiot, they are okay.
I see several regulars there when I go. One guy's SKS has a really nice trigger. Some bench rest shooters and guys sighting in their hunting rifles. Pistol area is pretty empty.
Gibson's says no to any shotgun, so I took my sister to DFW for the basics.
He has reloading supplies. I think there are war-torn areas of the world with roads better than Lawson Rd.
Another board member here says he shoots full auto there.
It's not as crowded as Garland.

Venus sounds good too.

Ya, Venus sounds fun. I am in Arlington so I am not too far from there.

When Mr. Gibsons son runs the joint, it's all fucked up.

I've never had any issues with Frank and his wife and love the shit out of them. PLus, they let me play with my MGs there.

Are they the only range around the D/FW area that allow full auto?

Technically, Gibsons doesnt allow full auto.

It's at the descretion of Frank. Usually long time customers.
