Eagle Peak Shooting Range
- BBB Rating:
This place it by far the worst range ive been to stay away from this range, The range officers are extremely rude and racists my uncle which is from India lived here since he was 2 years old and is an american citizen, him and i both went to grab our targets to go put them up during a cease fire and he acted like we were reaching for our weapons the range officer flipped out at my uncle even though i was closer and doing the same thing. Then when it was time to shoot he only checked my uncles gun for fmj because he had an AR-15 and he is Indian then proceeded to check my ammo also but nobody else did he check until i started complaining about it out loud. Then he started to check other peoples ammo for fmj, They have forever lost a couple customers. Also it is a very uncomfortable and stressful environment to go shooting in not a good idea to treat people this way, go to The best of the west gun range they treat yo right.
If you enjoy shooting and have your safety and the safety of those around you foremost in your mind, this is the best place to go shooting. My boyfriend took me out yesterday to learn to shoot my new 9 mm and his AR15. He had been going to Red's in Pflugerville (an awesome indoor facility but a little pricey). We read the previous comments about the staff being grumpy, yelling, etc. I found them to be an awesome group of men who only barked if you were not following their safety rules during the "cease fire" periods. They were very knowledgeable, helpful and reminded me of my dad in many ways. Shooting is fun, but safety is extremely important, especially with newbies around and people who get lax because they think they know everything about weapons and put their "fun" hat on instead of their "fun/safety" hat.
It is a little drive out (30 minutes from work in Round Rock), but for $10 for the entire day versus $15 per hour at Red's, it was totally worth it. We spent 3 hours out there and had a blast! Can't wait to go back!

This is by far the worst experience I've encountered in quite some time. Not only are the front desk personnel hostile, so are the range monitors. I was going to say their behavior was rude, but that word doesn't accurately describe these people. A**holes is a more fitting word. Condescending owners and employees infest this place. Don't waste your money here. There are many other rifle ranges around that understand the value of a customer.

I don't recommend that you give this place your business. Besides the laundry list of range rules (you can't even load magazines or pick up a range bag during a cease fire) the range officers are just plain rude. I was told that I couldn't oil my gun on the line, that's right, no oiling. They also have that completely stupid no FMJ rifle ammo rule and they will be happy to sell you a 20 round box of trash steel case ammo for $11, the same stuff you can buy online and at Walmart for less than $5. Also, 16 years and younger are considered children and they have to be in direct supervision of an adult, so my 16 year old daughter who I know is ALOT smarter than those range officers couldn't even go to the bathroom without me. So if you don't want to waste you money and time and be treated like children, DON'T go here.
This place is great, i mean there isnt the best and vast selection of guns to choose from but i still was able to shoot an AR-15 and thats all i wanted!!! Also if you just follow the rules they provide you will have a good time. Dont be a jackass!!!! There are many places to go to be a jackass but this is not one of them. The Staff there was friendly and answered all questions i had and me and my girlfriend today had a great time and were happy.
BTW if your wondering about pricing here it is...
$10 for entrance fee
$10 for membership card (one time fee)
$12 to rent any gun
~$21 for ammunition
$0.25 for a single target or $1.00 for 5
$2 to rent goggles and glasses, i recomend getting your own and get those orange foam pieces that go in your ear and expand. They work well!
And thats pretty much it. Idk about clay targets and other accessories.
Anyone can shoot and as long as your 17 years or older you dont need anyone who is 17 or older with you at all times.
This place is great if you just want to take your family out for their first shooting range experience or if your an expert marksman. They take gun safety incredibly serious and you should feel safe here!!

I had been to this range years ago and returned this week. I was skeptical after reading a few of the reviews posted here and I detest mean people. I had to re join as my last visit must have been before the computer age. I gotta say these guys were BUTTERY NICE ! The customer service was among the best you can get in this day. I was shocked. The young guy helping me went out of his way to give me good attention and service. I was impressed with the range officer and the saftey protocol. The place was run over with kids and although I had to collar one that was wagging his rifle it was a good experience over all.

I've been a member at this range for almost 2 years. I have read all the negative comments. I am ex-military and of all the ranges I have shot at in the greater Austin area I feel safest at Eagle's Peak. I realize that the guys operating the place are at times rough around the edges. Yes they yell at people, but most of the people being yelled at have usually violated one of the posted safety practices. These old guys have everyone's safety in mind. I have seen many an inexperienced shooter on this range. If people who shoot on this range think these guy are too tough they have no clue what it is to shoot on a military range. The rules will protect people and save their life. I have visited other ranges in the area and wasn't impressed with the gun safety. If you lack self discipline and don't appreciate shooting in a safe environment don't shoot here. These guys aren't always nice but they are safe.

Never before have I seen on so many different levels the kind of poor, uncaring, and at times, abusive attitude displayed by each and every employee at Eagle Peak. It blows my mind to think that a business could succeed with this type of personnel.
Now, don't think that I'm some greenhorn that decided to pull out my rifle for that yearly shooting session and got yelled at by an R.O. and got my feelings hurt. To the contrary, I've been to Eagle Peak many times just because it was the only range around that had halfway decent facilities in my area. I've spent countless dollars there and have always kept my mouth shut because I needed a place to shoot.
Today, I brought my good friend to shoot along with my father. We were treated quite rudely by both people in the office and I decided I'd had enough. We decided to leave and never come back.
There are now other ranges in our area that are far more pleasant to shoot at. I have been giving nearly all of my business to Texas shooting range in Liberty Hill which is close to my residence. I've always been greeted with a smile instead of a scowl and they have a better facility bar none.
The days of behaving as if you are the only place in town are over....I can't help but think that Eagle Peaks days are numbered, especially as people realize that Texas Shooting Range has better facilities as well as a 1000 yard range, tactical bays and skeet/trap.
Did I mention that you can shoot fmj rifle ammo at Texas Shooting Range? Happy trails, guys....
