    Setterman, my day died at 64 of a heart attack. I am 60. Going to shoot trap as much as I can. Had two operations for tumors in my head. Never know what the future holds. Enjoy life.

    Rent a locker at night for that fancy gun you shoot. They are guarded. Jimmy Borum

    Ditto on renting the locker as well. A local shooter near me had his rental car hit during the night. His gun was in the room but all his shooting stuff was taken. Shells,pouch,glasses w/lenses,vest,plugs, misc. Get a locker!!! Breake-m all. Jeff

    Took my Daughter there for 5 years to the State 4-H Shoot. It is a nice place and there were several vendors there. Lots of things to do in town after each day ot the shoot.
    We took a camper and camped on the grounds. Had cook outs and lots of fellowship time. Also rented Golf carts from Mission Golf carts because we stayed almost a week and shot 6 events.

    Do rent a locker for your valueables because the town locals know what is going on and will certianly relieve you of your property at motels and dining places. I KNOW !!!

    You will have a fun time there!!

    Is theft really that rampid in San Antonio? I had heard that you should take special precautions long the river walk, but is the entire area bad?

    ddDI lahve been shooting there once or more for the last 5 years. They put on great and well run shoot with great people and venders with a clear blue sky background. You will have to move around do to shooting on two levels. Check the weather because shooting in Texas can be very tring. Last year it rained big time the four days I shot they had to cancel the Sat. 200 singles do to flooding of the fields. My daughter lives in the aera and we have been on the Riverwalk mlany times and never had any trouble.
    PS. Jim's restrants have the best breakfast in town and there is two with in 5 miles of the complex.

    Most Texans got over the Alamo, when Sam Houston finished up at San Jacinto.

    All shells sold at the Complex are sold at the Complex shell house. Vendors are not allowed to sell shells on the property. The shell house normally has a large variety to choose from.
