This place is ran by bipolar idiots. I have been there before and had no issues, but today was the worst that you could experience. I have seen them be strick but really when you can't even shoot the way you want to practice. I have rapid fired before with my sw9sigma and my glock 22 as well as I have fast fired my 243 and 308 rifles, now I have new mp15-22 which fires 22lr rounds. Couldn't fire close range on the 25... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
Gibson Outpost & Shooting RangeAdd to mybook
Unbelievable - how do these people stay in business.
Rude, crude - mean spirited.
Stay away from this business - they deserve to be boycotted.
As an experienced female shooter - was looking for a place to practice - this is not the place - unless you are into abuse.
They will never receive a penny of my money ever again.
Reccently spent a great day at the Gibson Range. I have read the other reviews and I am not affilated with the range.
The range is the only open, full metal jacket range I know of near DFW. I was skeptical based on the reviews but I found Frank to be delightful and very helpful. The range rules are strict, and should be! After watching morons point loaded weapons in my direction on other ranges, I am thrilled t... view more
From what I can tell everyone here is that Gibson's is a very good place to shoot. Just follow the range rules and do as instructed. Mr Gibson Sr is a very nice guy and has a lot of knowledge. The son is a very no nonsense kinda guy that is a stickler for following the rules. With that being said, I enjoy talking and spending time with them. On a not so good note, Mrs Gibson has become very ill and the family has com... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I think that blogger 12ax7 and blogger zx9rt1 are the same person, and in fact the very owners of the range and perhaps it that rude son of the owner, guy, who keeps emphasizing safety.
We understand where you are coming from but still it is important to be nice to your customers.
Your range does offer two major advantages that a lot of ranges in DFW do not offer and that is a 200 yard range and shooting ball a... view more
there are a lot of mixed reviews about Gibson's out there and after my first experience I've gotta say, I understand why.\r
I made a point to be as courteous and compliant as I could with their rules; I never did anything without asking permission first, followed all their requests to the letter, etc. After all, I understand that the rules are there for the safety of all those involved.\r
It was a slow day,... view more
Ok first of all people you need to know that this isnt your run of the mill shooting range where no one looks over your shoulder making sure that you dont shoot yourself in the friggin leg ! I met the owner and his wife both of them were pretty decent the owner himself is great and had a conversation with me his wife isnt that bad people ! She is an aged old lady not a hooters waitress ! Look at your own parents ( if... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
So the place has all the atmosphere of the moon and the staff has the personality of a mud puddle. This is a gun range, not a fine dining experience, these are weapons, not steak and lobster. There are people you don’t know handling loaded weapons all around you and if they make any mistake they will most likely kill you or someone other than themselves so I guess it does not matter to them. Here they express there ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
It's close and I don't mind rules.
What is unacceptable is the reputation of the owners and their ""over the top"" outbursts. Watched the son ""yell"" at a customer with his megaphone the last time at the range.
This place is closer than any other range available in the Metroplex , yet it will be my second or third choice. When the owners have a reputation for their attitude that was witnessed then my money is... view more
Made my first visit today per recommendation from a long time shooter. I need a place to practice shooting the M1A standing and prone with the irons @ 100 yrds.\r
arrived @ 10AM, found the owner very friendly and professional, paid the $19 (all future visits are $12), was briefed on the rules (all standard), got set up and shot till about noon (I couldn't stand the heat any longer). Would highly recommend shooting d... view more
