Red's Indoor Range

Staff was fairly friendly but once you step into the range things go downhill quick. Range master harasses you, there was also a personal instructor in the lane next to me that was ridiculing me the entire time while telling his fake war stories to his client, over crowded very stressful environment to shoot in. Not worth the money.
wow I took a trip to Red's to test my new gun. Boy did I make a mistake. This place is old and run down...and it looks like the ventilation system needs to be updated. I was sneezing like crazy and when I left my sinus was black in the inside. I will never go to this place again...If you go you will get a high level of lead in your lungs.
A great place for first time shooters!!!!
The wife and I decided to get a gun. We went to Red's, rented a Glock, did a little target practice, had a wonderful time, brought a gun (Glock 19) and have been going to Red's at least once a month since. Red's is great. The Red's staff is very helpful. I love this place.

I introduce friends to shooting every few months. I've previously done this several time at the Red's north location, and everything has gone great there.
At the south location, the setup and staff are no good, especially for bringing new folk into shooting sports.
The range itself is designed poorly in a few ways:
The lanes are very cramped.
It's poorly lit.
The pistol lanes are not segregated from the rifle lanes.
The area where you sign up to use the range is in the small transition room between the range and the store proper...this room is normally used to limit noise that comes into the store proper from the range...such a room must have at least one door closed at all times for just that purpose. So you can imagine how loud it can get in there.
The staff showed incompetence in a few ways:
There were only three lanes in use. Despite there being a lane available with unused lanes on each side of it, the range officer assigned us to a lane next to someone firing rifles. It was not pleasant trying to instruct and ease new shooters in to marksmanship when the lane next to you is making noise loud enough to be felt in your body.
They also charged us as though we had rented three lanes, instead of renting one. At the north location, I have never been charged for using multiple lanes when renting a single lane for two or more people to shoot at.
If you're close to the Red's south location, do yourself and everyone you're with a favor and go shoot at Lone Star Range instead of putting up with a place that doesn't deserve your business.

...went to Red's this morning with my partner (first time for both of us) and had a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and respectful. Even the customers around us were kind and helpful (although we were probably just lucky on that point...).
We had a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back for more...
