Re: New Gun Range is coming to Allen, TX

Rifle range is 50 yards. I wished they had a 100yard underground tube.

Re: New Gun Range is coming to Allen, TX

Update: Dirt and ground construction started.
50 yards, range only, Disappointing.

It was on a weekday (Thursday, I think) and we were there when they opened. Got our lane assignment, and there was only one other lane in our section with shooters. After an hour, a FGC employee came by and told us our time was up, we had to pack it up and leave. They certainly didn't have anyone waiting for a lane. My friend wasn't too happy about it, for sure. Said he was going to speak with management about it. Haven't heard if he did or not.
I can no longer use Shotguns on the range.
I can no longer set up a Chrono on the Rifle lanes.
Many lanes are not maintained and they have tons of money.
You cannot shoot steel cases anymore (I do not anyways).

Truly annoying. In 2013 and again in 2015, I emailed the Director of the Facility complaining about the rifle range lack of maintenance and not enough lights and bad design of the rifle benches. Till date, the lanes are still in same condition.

New Gun Range is coming to Allen, TX

A New Gun Range is coming to Allen, TX.

I am fed up with the deteriorating privileges and benefits of Platinum membership of Frisco gun club. In the drive to maximize profits, FGC management keeps increasing the yearly dues of the membership, prioritize the hourly paying walk-ins shooters over those who are already a members (cause members have already fully paid). Even, asking the members to clear the lane for the hourly paying walk-ins shooters. Last but not least, we used to get 6-guest free pass cards, were those cards were valid anytime and for both Rifle and Pistol ranges, I recently discovered that same guest cards are valid only for 1-hr on Pistol range and honored Monday-Friday. I used those guest cards as club promotion to my friends.

So crazy and backward.

Yesterday, I certainly decided that 2017 is my last year at FGC, it was my 5th! And, I an a founding member (i.e. had membership before the Grand Opening day)
