Reccently spent a great day at the Gibson Range. I have read the other reviews and I am not affilated with the range.
The range is the only open, full metal jacket range I know of near DFW. I was skeptical based on the reviews but I found Frank to be delightful and very helpful. The range rules are strict, and should be! After watching morons point loaded weapons in my direction on other ranges, I am thrilled this range is run like a military firing line.
Plenty of space, privacy, and quiet to work on groupings. They break every 20 minutes or so to allow you to reset targets, etc. During the cease fire, your weapon must be safe and you must stand away from your waepon as others are down range at the targets.
This rule was sorely tested by a ""know it all"" that was there to show friends how to shoot. During the cease fire, he was handling loaded weapons with a ditzy blond while I was down range adjusting a target. Frank's son shouted down the two idiots and rightfully so.
Overall, very well run, stric and thankfully safe. I intend to return several times to group some nice paterns at 200 yds with the right optics.
Stay Hard Frank!
I have read the other reviews and realize how many idots there are in the world.
