I know we've got at least a few OPERATORs behind enemy lines in the Austin Pocket with me. Why haven't we had a shoot since Tracer Tong left?

I don't live in Austin but I'll be there the weekend of July 5th for RTX. Last 2 years I had a hard time wading through all the bars that sell bud/miller light and other flavored piss to college kids while trying to find a place that sells a good dark beer. I won't have time for a shoot that weekend but if you want to grab a drink I'd be down.
If I remember correctly starduks/Txoperator is still in the area for the next few months, so there's at least one other in the area.

>> No. 2530 ID: 39047a
Roughly the evening of July 5th through the afternoon of the 7th. There hasn't been an official schedule posted yet but going off of last year I expect to be in the convention center all day Saturday and Sunday save for lunch. However if you want to get together for some food or drink my evenings will be free.

Sounds like a plan. I'm sitting on about 900 rounds of 5.56 and enough buckshot to last me a while, but I need 9mm so I can actually practice with my carry gun goddamnit.

Hell. If we're looking at a weekend, I'm down. With the university being out of session for the summer, I'm looking at quite a bit of time off.

I must be high!! (not really)

I meant the 27th/28th (Tuesday/Wednesday)

Reason for those days is they are my only days off from work, and I have a friend visiting, and I am taking him to the range (he owns a bunch of guns himself).

Paging Danderdude.

I'd really like to set up a shoot with the Austin/Houston/San Antonio triangle of OPERATORS soon, especially since weather will be cooling down shortly. Doesn't need to be a huge deal, but a decent range or piece of land where we could get together and meet up would be excellent.

I'll be heading up to Austin in a few weeks for a work thing, will advise when so if anyone wants to grab a drink we can go do so.

I'll also be in San Antonio in the next few weeks also.

Shoot is stickied in /t/, hope some people can make it!

Looks like a nice place. How's it compare to Lone Star?
>> No. 3272 ID: e365e5

From what I've heard, it's great, good long range, an "explosive" range, tannerite and old cars and whatnot.

Haven't been yet, technically, tried to go weekend before last, but they were closed, still building up it seems.
>> No. 3273 ID: 861761
The City of Creedmoor has obtained a temporary restraining order against The Shooting Ranch from operating until we have a hearing in District Court on Jan 23rd. Until then we will be closed. We will reopen very soon! Sorry for the inconvenience. Additionally if any friends of The Shooting Ranch would like to have their voice heard please attend the City of Creedmoor meeting on Thursday Jan 16th at 7pm. They will have an open forum for you to voice your opinion. Feel free to show up to support the 2nd Amendment.

Question for Austinbros:

What ranges in the Austin area allow automatics?
If indoor, do they allow rifle calibers?
What about steel cased ammo?
>> No. 3432 ID: 5adb5b
>>3427
Didn't see this, I never check /meet/ anymore, probably call Best of the West, I know you won't be able to fire autos at Red's or Eagle Peak, Lone Star in Lockhart is also no autos IIRC.
>> No. 3435 ID: d5e5a4
>>3432
Thanks for the info.

I'll call Best of the West and ask them.
>> No. 3436 ID: d5e5a4
>>3432

Best of the West does allow autos in the tactical bays, but you have to qualify before they'll let you use them. Qualification is shooting at 250 yards.

Dang. Why does Austin suck when it comes to allowing automatics at their ranges? Almost every public indoor range in Houston allows automatics (some are pistol cartridge only, but almost all of the new ranges allow automatic rifles). Hell, most of them rent autos.
>> No. 3437 ID: 8e7819
>>3436
Most of our ranges are outdoor and outside of the Austin area.
So liability of outdoor ranges...
We only really have a couple ranges in Austin and they're indoor. Basically the establishment of new ranges never happen in Austin because well it's Austin. It's a nice city and all but the politics are different from the rest of the state.

It used to be decent but it's getting worse with the incoming population of Californians.
