DFW area Airgunners?
« on: November 18, 2013, 11:27:56 PM »
Looking for others in the Dallas/Ft Worth area to start a club. Find a reliable place to plink, compete, hang, etc..

Any members in the DFW area?

I'm in the area. Only place I have to shoot is my local gun club. There are some guys at the Haltom City gun club that shoot NRA air rifle matches too.  There is a group called the north Texas air gun militia, but they haven't been very active lately.

Well howdy neighbor. I started an area-centric Facebook page. Hoping to get a group of like-minded folks together for some shooting, events, comps, etc

Ideally, it would be cool to find someone with a warehouse or something where we could get together and plink.

I'm not too far from DFW, but my problem is that I work weekends, so if you get something together on a weeknight, I would be interested.

Hey guys let me know when you get something together. I am in Baton Rouge area and am trying to put together a group just like what you are doing. May be we can get a couple times a year between our two states for fun and to learn more about the other side of the sport the competitive side. Just for fun and bragging rights. Kevin in LA.

There is a small group of us connected on Facebook. Mostly DFW area guys. 20 or so. If you're on Facebook, look for DFW Airgun Club.

There are three of us, and sometimes 5, who drive 220 miles one way every month to Somerville to shoot Field Target at the Yegua Airgun Club.  VERY interested in forming a DFW Club that is closer.  So, we have the bodies, and access to some targets.  We just need a venue, a place to shoot.

I'm outside of Greenville (East of the Dallas/Frisco area about an hour), Wolfe City postal zone but an unincorperated community. My property is five acres and my neighbor allows me shooting privelages on his ten acres next to the land I'm on. So... fifteen acres total.
I wouldn't mind having an occasional meetup out here, just keep in mind it IS private property, not a public place, so PLEASE be respectful of the neighbors!

Check out DFW Airgun Club on Facebook and join if you aren't a member already.

Any of you guys going to the Airgun Show in Ft. Worth on 9/6?

You guys ever get any further with this?  I live in Irving just outside Dallas and I'm looking for people to shoot with.

Hey DFW airgunners. I'm developing a business plan for a new state of the art air gun only indoor range in the North Dallas/Plano area! The facility will have 30 shooting lanes with Suis Electronic targets providing instant feedback to the shooter. We will host Olympic 10 meter air rifle and air pistol competitions, Three position air rifle competitions and benchrest air rifle competitions. We will have local league competitions in beginner, sporter and precision levels for men, women, juniors an seniors. We will also host local, regional, state, national and international competitions. If you are interested in becoming a part of this exciting new venture, let me know and I will be glad to discuss what I'm doing with you.
