Top Gun

What’s Texas without a few guns? Top Gun Range provides a knowledge staff to help any rookie or veteran shooter, charging $15 per person for all-day shooting. Bring your own gun or rent one to use their indoor range. This is a great place for shooters of all levels as they offer multiple private, group, and international classes, such as the Concealed Handgun License (provided by Texas-certified instructors for $85). Range fees include eye protection, hearing protection, and a target.
