    There is a new shooting range opening up in March about a mile from my house. Its an indoor range (great for summer in Tx). The best part is that they were offering charter memberships for $100.00. All of the other memberships in the area start at 250.00, including their's once it opens. It reduced my daily range pass from $14.85 to $1.99, and I can take 1 guest for free. There are also a bunch of other perks, but thats the biggest one. :D

    So ready for it to open!

    Sounds like you are hooked on BP shooting; that's great!

    One thing about those indoor ranges; some snobish members frown on BP shooting in their midst; much like a "gated" community frowns on rusty cars!

    I double checked before I signed up...three owners said it wouldnt be a problem.

    And its funny that my "Rusty Car" was getting more curious people coming over and asking about it than the shiny new ones were. :D

    TxBlackPowder, that's great, sounds like you're all set.

    Once I got "lectured" when I started shooting a BP revolver at an indoor range; the owners were worried about all the smoke (and their ventilation system wasn't the greatest).

    according to the owners, the ventalation will be strong enough that you will actually feel a breeze at your back when your shooting. Now it just needs to open.
