Hi All,

Looks like there are several people here from Houston. I live on the west side of town and was wondering about places to shoot.

I've been to the American Shooting Center in George Bush park, but am looking for a different place.

Any suggestions?

Great equipment/lanes.
Great filtration

sorry didnt get back to you sooner, been gone a couple of days. i go to Bailey's House of Guns, a little ways off Almeda and the Beltway, close to the Humane Society building. its a "mom-n-pop" shop, but its a good outdoor range, have a USPSA/ rapid fire range, 25 yard shotgun/pistol range, 100-yard range, and a clay pigeon range. went just yesterday, enjoyed myself. cheap, too, $6 per gun (everybody you can cram in your truck can shoot your gun, as long as its paid for), 16 bucks for the clay range, but thats with a box of clays, and the $6 gun charge is included. they also have CHL classes there.

Went to Top Gun yesterday. The have eliminated a lot of their ammo restrictions. Brought and shot my own UMC yellow box.

Thats good to hear.

They recently went under new management and at that time I was told they were going to be restricting the ammo shot.

Still a little expensive for my taste. I do believe LEO shoots half price there though.

I will definately need to check out Bailey's. Shooting in dark indoor ranges gets old.

No kidding, i used to go to Marksman in Pasadena, and it does get old, pay per person (not per gun), and its always loud, crowded. I like being outdoors.

PoSSoM - Bailey's this weekend sounds good.

Let me know what time y'all want to meet. I'll probably have to work this weekend, but I can probably work around a shoot.

I don't have an XD yet, but would love the opportunity to try one out. I'll bring my Beretta 96 and S&W 908.

Sounds fun. Hopefully we can get several people to join.

I am shooting Friday afternoon/early evening at Pasadena Gun Center. Its an OK range, but its close to my office and convenient. Besides, I don't have time to shoot on Saturday, otherwise I'd join you guys.

I'll be shooting my XD-40, Belgian Hi-Power and might even bring the 1918 WWI German Luger along. Look for a blue Volvo 240 outside...thats me.

(I might let you try out the Luger...if you ask)
