Went to the Gun Show yesterday at Dallas Market Hall and talked to guy opening a range called Tactical Edge (http://www.h3tacticaledge.com) looks like a good place, will open in October. Check out the web site, you can practice your "draw" at this range.....

I heard about this one a few months ago, I have been waiting for this range to open.... :D

It is supposed to be the ULTIMATE range experience.


Can't wait

Looks like it will be a nice range. Hopefully they're plans carry through and we have another good option for shooting in the metroplex.

If it is nice enough for someone to use the word "dang" , I may have to join...... :D For $300 a year vs. $15 a visit, well dang, you do the math....
On the serious side, is this a "chain" or one man's idea?

Thanks,

Delta,

I may have to join as well, I have been shooting at Quail Creek and really enjoy the guys that run/Ranger the place, very helpful and friendly, that is where I took my CHL class, I always try to back the "Ma and Pa" stores......
Have you shot at DFW Gun Range? If so, what is your impression of the place? Looks good from the web site, getting ready to make a trip there this weekend........

DFW gun range---> very professional staff and a good range
Backwoods Traps---> I used to RO there, good range
Quail Creek---> good range
Winchester gun range on Luna Rd, gang banger haven. I refuse to go there unless I am wearing body armor, which I have.
DFW gun club---VERY GOOD
Collin County Range---> I like it, but only when needed.
Bullet trap in Plano----> Very professional range and staff
Tac-Pro Stephenville... Good out door range, long range rifle, sub machine gun range.

I like to go to different gun ranges...

I teach at the DFW Gun Range. If I may toot our own horn, we try to be very personable and friendly, while also keeping things safe. We have a good group of counter employees who are knowledgeable and friendly.

We have 14 lanes, and rifles are allowed on 9 of those. Shotguns are allowed. 9 of the lanes are 25 yards, and 5 are 15 yards. As do most indoor ranges, we have a huge problems with people destroying the equipment, including the target rails and carrriers. We do our best to keep on it, but you might occasionally find a lane or 2 down for repair.

We offer many classes, including CHL, Security Levels 1,2, 3 and 4, a 2 hour private instructionintro to handguns and other private training. We regularly offer OC, Handcuff and baton classes for security and others needing such training.

We also have regular intermediate and advanced CHL pistol classes.

Later this month were are conducting an advanced VIP protection course. I can provide details for anyone interested.

We have a full rental selection, so try before you buy. We also stock a full compliment of guns for sale, including the Glocks, Kimbers, Springfields, Sig Sauer, HK, Ruger, Walther, S&W, etc. We also stock long guns, and have AR's, HK G3 clone, the JLD, SAR's etc.

We have a line of Sig Sauer clothing including vests and tac pants. We also carry body armor, holsters, surefire lighting, M3 and M6 lights/lasers, laser drips and guide rods, and GG&G parts for AR's.

I will be in Saturday with a guard class, so ask for Jeff when you get in. I'll buy you one of our lousy cups of coffee.

The staff there is good and they seem to be very helpful for those who need help (like the guys who tried shooting 9mm through a .40 cal the last time I was there). They are very expensive if you rent their guns because they charge an arm and two legs for their ammo (which you must use in their guns), but if you're bringing your own guns and ammo then they're pretty reasonable. Even more so if you bring your own targets (I think they charge $1 a piece for them). It's a nice facility with good equipment.

Jeff,

If plans don't change, I'll look for you this Sat. I am thinking about checking the place out this week during lunch, I work on Hidden Ridge in Irving which is only about 15 minutes down the road. How are their gun prices? How do they compare with Academy, which I think has the best gun prices in the area...I have been looking at a Ruger 9mm 345 for a sometimes carry, range gun....

Thanks,
Jim
