Interested in defensive shooting in Houston???

Postby JerryK » Thu Aug 11, 2016 7:27 pm

Here is a defensive shooting club in SW Houston (Richmond/Rosenberg) area that shoot on Tuesday evenings @ 6 pm.

http://www.rosenbergdefensivepistolclub.net/

This is a great place to practice your skills. The problem with all indoor ranges is that they severely restrict your handling of firearms. We all want to shoot in a safe environment. RDPC operates a cold range that keeps firearms unloaded until you are instructed to 'load and make ready' which is not uncommon in shooting competitions. After that point you will be allowed to draw your loaded weapon and commence firing at targets as you walk the scenarios whether sitting in a stage car or walking the stage. After you shoot a few stages you will realize how unprepared most are in a true SD situation.

They also have a beginners class for learning proper gun handling procedures prior to walking the stages. This is where you can learn holster and un-holstering a loaded weapon which in not allowed and most other ranges.

This is a safe range where you can mingle with other like minded people!!!

This looks great. I live in the Westchase area, but I work in Sugar Land. I'll be back in the US in mid September, and I'll have to try this out.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

This looks like a lot of fun. I have just started getting into IDPA and have shot one match with WHIDPA, which was a lot of fun even if my score was not the best. I may try it out next Tuesday, but I am already signed up for my second match with WHIDPA on Wednesday, so not sure if I can get out of work early two days in a row.

For those that wanted to give this a try, RDPC will suspend shooting till Sept 13th due to the Area 4 Championships occurring at this location.

I hope to see you there then.

SD, They have been shooting for the past few weeks again, although I have had to miss it since it started back up. They will switch over to Sundays at 2:00pm when the time changes. Time changes on Nov 6 2016

Edit; they have already moved to Sundays.

That is really good to hear. Sunday afternoons work a lot better for me than weekdays.
