I know quite a few of you guys are in the Dallas area. I feel like we're a minority around here with all of the gun ranges closing. Not sure if any of you are aware or frequented these places: -Collin County Gun Range - apparently closed by the city of McKinney due to 'noise ordinace violations'. Shit, it was bad enough they had to close at dark and couldn't be open on Sunday, but now this crap? I don't think they are completely down for the count, but they have been closed since Aug30 -Backwoods Traps - I actually live about 2 miles from this place and it was awesome. They were getting hassled by the developers in the area and by new homeowners. The new community that was built across the street ... DUH!, when you came out and looked at that lovely little parcel of dirt that your new home was going to be built on and heard the gunshots in the distance ... you thought those were going to stop when you moved in?? The owners finally gave in to the developers and sold ... I think it was either that or they were in for a long fight I usually go to Bullet Trap in Plano for pistol, but an indoor 25yd rifle bay isn't going to cut it. I went to check out Elm Fork (Luna Rd just off Northwest Hwy) a little while back. I hadn't been there in a couple of years and was quite disappointed in the changes. I guess due to insurance reasons they now have a 20ft tall pile of dirt directly in front of the rifle range benches. Buried in the pile of dirt is a 2ft diameter culvert/pipe that you have to shoot through to hit your target downrange. I understand the need for safety, but this is ridiculous ... it makes you feel like you're in a game or something. Where else do you guys shoot rifles in the Dallas area?
