Moved here from VA last year
« on: May 27, 2019, 09:34:52 PM »
Hi,  Just moved here from Virginia last year to be near my daughter who lives near Elgin.  Did a little shooting back East.  Mostly range stuff.  Competed in SASS for about 6 years till my health made it too difficult to stay outside long enough to shoot a match.  Used the NRA indoor range mostly in Fairfax VA (in the basement of their Headquarters building)  Belonged to a local Izaak Walton club with an outdoor range, but I don't see any Izaak Walton clubs in Austin.  Don't see any SASS clubs in Austin either, close, but I still doubt I could shoot a whole match.

Hey from Plano.  And your first "LIKE".

Elgin is a great rural town, just far enough from Austin but easy to get to the airport.

Welcome Chris! I'll pony up and give you your second like!  :rocknroll2:

I'm a bit east of you over here in East Texas. Beautiful country over there in central Texas area.

Glad to have you join up and congrats on moving to Texas. :th_thicon_idea:

Elgin is pretty famous for their sausage.The stockyard/rodeo restaurant makes a dang good burger.This range is about twenty minutes north of of Elgin. https://www.krtraining.com/AZoneRange/AZoneRange.html

I've shot there as a guest a couple of times but that was a couple of years ago. Nice place with accommodating staff.

And a welcome shout out from Brazos county.
