Lone Star Shooting Sports Lubbock

This place just opened in Lubbock (they aren't even done unpacking yet). They are currently the only place in Lubbock to buy Black Rifle Coffee. I visited last week for exactly that reason. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the owner KNOWS GUNS. Good people, great store. Haven't been able to use the range yet, but I definitely plan to. If you're in Lubbock, check them out!

I’m a student at Tech, and I’m gonna make it out there tomorrow. They have a lot of neat stuff there, targets that flip randomly and stuff. Going to apply for a job there too. How’d you like the range?
I’d rather be judged by 12, than carried by 6.

Thanks for the heads up. Been looking for a range since we moved here.

The wife and I stopped by today. When we walked in, we were greeted by one of the employees and he gave us the nickel tour of the building. He showed us the retail side of the store where they have handguns out so that customers can pick up and get a feel for them. He showed us both the ranges, Alpha side has pre-programmed targets that go out pre-determined distances and rotate. Bravo side allows you to control how far out the target goes but they don't rotate.

They also offer LTC, basic handgun, and a free active shooter course. They're currently working on curriculum for a youth shooting course. They're still stocking the store and if they don't have what you're looking for, just ask and they will get a price for you.
Really nice range with very friendly and helpful employees. I think we found our new range. If you're in the area, definitely stop by.

I also bought BRCC t-shirt from them. ;-)

If I"m remembering correctly, each side has around 8-10 lanes that are wide enough for two people to share a lane if they prefer to save a little money.

Great looking business, but I sure wish they wouldn't participate in Facebook advertising given what we now know about FB/Zuckerberg's leftist skewing and influence.

Is this the one that the former Lubbock City Council member owns? I seem to recall hearing about him planning to bring in an indoor range a year or so back...

I'm not sure about that since I'm not very good with networking and remembering who does what or knows whom, but I did hear one person say that the same person who owns Sharpshooters owns this place. Cannot confirm though.

There's some design outfit that does ranges, can't remember the name. Believe that look gets repeated a bit with minor tweaks as I've seen it in 3 or 4 different 'high end' places.

Nice though. Did they get a food and liquor license too?
