I myself prefer my AR and Glock but I've got a Ruger and an SKS I rarely shoot.

$180??? Maybe that includes an NRA membership? Wouldn't hurt to ask. One reason they may have had to go up to newcomers could be the need to have an orientation meeting for all new members. They were getting too many "I didn't know that" excuses from idiots that didn't follow the rules, even though they were given a copy of the rules when they joined. So, they fixed that by having them attend an orientation meeting with all the rules explained, etc.

And a side note Lock & Load in Tyler no longer allows rifles, stopped going over there when I got chewed on for just bring my rifle in the door when there was no sign posted about it.
Yeah, about 3 miles north. Lock & Load was nice back when I wasn't going to the range very often. The electronic target carriers & being inside out of the weather is nice, but when I started going more regular, it got a little expensive. I'd have probably done their annual membership thing for $240 per year, but when they said they'd still charge me $10 per hour when I used it, I figured there had to be a better deal & checked on the range in Longview. Gets touchy in the winter & summer, but I get by.

The fee for me is now $115 a year plus you must be a member of the NRA to belong to the ETRPC. I live in Longview, not far from the W-M on Gilmer road. As for what I shoot... rifles, shotguns, pistols oh my!

Welcome, if you can't find it on this forum chances are you don't need to know!

I've only been shooting pistols. I did take my Marlin 60 out there to blow the cobwebs & dirt dobber nests out of it, 'cause it'd been 30 years or so since shooting it. Just kidding, I did run a patch through the barrel before shooting it!!

Of course, I've only been shooting on a regular basis for about 3-4 years & seems I just get a pistol broke in & I find another one I want & it follows me home.
