Does anyone know where one can shoot without taking out a loan?
I'm up in Denton on a college budget (made a whopping 3 grand last year), and the cheapest I've come across so far is $260 a year (this figure includes range fees and gas) for a meager 1hr time slot per month at Denton County Sports Association, which I find to not even approach what a young shooter needs to establish and maintain proficiency. DFW Gun Range is gonna run me around $310, but I can stay as long as I can stand to shoot per session. This is all before ammo.
The private range in Denton has a waiting list over 1 year long.
On top of this, I'm becoming a TX resident and have to get a new permit and take the CHL class.
I'm not too keen on carrying without some regular practice as I've had my XD for less than a year and only put around 250 round through it.
