There are a great many reasons for gun owners to find a decent range that they know will accommodate their shooting interests. We tend to find the more restrictive ranges closer to urban environments, but you won’t know for sure depending on which State you a living in. Every State in the Country is different and trying to find out where to look is very difficult.
Some gun clubs don’t want to be too open to the public and we can understand that, but the vast majority of shooting ranges and gun clubs should be recruiting grounds and basic firearms safety locations. Sure we can learn from our parents, but the NRA has a strong hold on in some Texas Shooting Ranges and if you can find a good gun club near you, you should have access to different levels of training and shooting skills.
