Any recommendations?

I picked up a few new guns from the gun show in dripping springs a few weeks back. Is there any outdoor ranges near by?

Bad experience at CTGW

Went in to make a simple purchase. Nothing out of the ordinary. Background check came back as delayed, weird never happened before, but I did recently have a name change.

The creepy 20 year old working behind the counter pulled my information from when I applied to purchase/visited the store, stole my phone number and has been texting me hitting on me for several days despite me rebuffing his advances.

I will admit I did cuss him out and read him for filth, but every time I call the store and get the automated message I get hung up on. Hopefully the owner is active in this sub and will address.

Throw some support CTGW's way; SCOTUS just struck down the bump-stock ban

Michael Cargill, owner of Central Texas Gun Works on Ben White, brought his challenge to Trump's bump-stock ban all the way to the Supreme Court, and the decision came out this morning overturning the rule.

Private firearms class recs? Absolute gun newbie wife wants to surprise her husband for Father’s Day

My husband has never owned a firearm, but we’ve been shooting a few times with rented handguns and rifles. We’ve recently decided we’d like to develop the skills necessary to safely defend ourselves if needed, including purchasing his first pistol. I’m hoping to surprise my husband for Father’s Day with a morning of private or semi-private firearms instruction, plus shopping for a pistol, as well as ongoing tactical defense classes.

Where would you recommend I contact? I’ve reached out to The Range and Atomic. This doesn’t have to happen on Fathers Day exactly, but sometime this week or next would be best. Thanks!

Going to an Austin FC game, anybody here gone to Q2 Stadium lately?

If we were going to drive in, I'd just lock my CCW up in the glovebox, but we're taking the rail in from Cedar Park. Anyone know what the locker situation for game days are like?

Best places for kids outdoors

My 10 & 11 year old nephews are coming to visit us in Leander and I’d like to start teaching them to shoot and of course continued gun safety. I’m going to buy BB guns and was hoping you could help give me ideas of where to take them outdoors to shoot the BB guns in the Austin/ surrounding areas? We live in a neighborhood with small backyards so we don’t really have enough space at home. TIA

Edit: I’m checking into municipal laws and either way would like to learn if there’s an area we could legally take them to shoot some targets and cans

Just bought my first handgun. Rules for taking it to the range?

I'm a beginner, but not completely clueless. I know the basics of safety, handling, shooting, etc. I've been to the range a few times before, but always rented the guns and purchased their ammo.

I just purchased a glock-19 and some ammo. This might be a dumb question, but what exactly are the procedures for taking my stuff to the range? Do I just walk in with my handgun and ammo in a bag and say I want to rent a lane? Does it need to be in a holster? Do I need to show them everything I have?

Thanks!

Edit: thanks for all the advice everyone. Broke in my glock at the range and had a blast :)

Looking for a good gunsmith in the Austin area

Hi, I’m looking for a gunsmith in the Austin area that has experience with the Tavor X95 platform and can replace the stock trigger with the Geissele trigger pack and lightning bow.

This is probably a simple job I could figure out myself by watching a few YouTube videos, but I’d rather just pay a professional to do it.

I’ve read a few posts warning against using Blackjack Gunsmithing, so I was hoping there was a better local option.

Thanks

20ga Citori new bolt

The barrel release lever on my 1970's era Browning Citori 20 gauge skeet shotgun is in the middle and I think its time for an overhaul. Does anybody have a recommendation for a gunsmith within driving distance of Austin who is qualified to do the work?

Academy ammo deals

Pretty much as the title says. I just stocked up on Federal 9mm 115gr for $51.99 for a 200 rd box. They also had a 500 rd box for $120. Lots of other 9mm ammo on sale too. That’s practically on par with the best online prices. Just wanted to spread the word before the deals go.

LTC question. Apply first or take the classes first?

So I have a class scheduled in a few weeks and have been checking out the state's website. apparently you can't update the LTC-100 and supporting documents until you have an application on file. Should I just go ahead and apply now or is it required to do the classes first? Knowing the speed and agility of the state I figure I should do it now but it don't cost nothing to ask.

Clearing out the drawers of some accessories. Most have been lightly or hardly used. I'll note any that have more wear. Offers welcome especially if you want more than one item.

Black $45
Grey $45

P365 grip module $20 (this was my original and it is scuffed and a bit dirty before I got a cerakoted in OD green one that matches that of my P365 XL).

Holsters (all are right hand side draw)

Texas Holster Solutions Pierce P365 XL (OD green) $30
Texas Holster Solutions Pierce P365 (Black) $30

TGT Account Setup

I’m looking to sell two pistols that were gifted to me by my fudd Grandfather and Dad, respectively on TGT. I’ve never used the website before and I’m surprised they charge a fee for account setup. How much is that fee? And once you have an account do you have to pay money to list an ad of what you’re selling or is listing something free?

Who in the Austin area (preferably North/Cedar Park/Round Rock) can remove a VERY stubborn XMacro iron sight?

I've got an XMacro and I love it but I want to replace the iron sights. I bought Trijicon HD XR, A decent sight pusher from Amazon and a vernier caliper to calibrate it. But DAMN THE STOCK XRAY SIGHTS ARE STUBBORN. I have cranked and cranked my hog the pusher but the front sight won't budge A SINGLE MILLIMITER.

Asking for recommendations on anyone in the Austin Area that can help me out with this tough sunnova!

Going to build own AR - looking for suggestions on instructors/guides to check finished weapon

Why build? For familiarity/experience.

Have watched a ton of tutorials and videos, have sourced reputable receiver/upper/assemblies/parts. But have never shot anything I have assembled, and as such would like to have an instructor or guide help me do a sanity check.

Are there folks who would be willing to help?
