Range Qualification - We use Double Diamond Gun Range located in Anson. This is a nice indoor facility with air conditioning so that we do not have to worry about the weather. The address to the facility is 2065 US Highway 277 South, Anson, TX 79501.
Qualifications will be done in 3 groups of 10. Group assignments will be given based on time of check-in. First 10 will be assigned to Group 1, Second 10 will be assigned to Group 2, Last 10 will be assigned to Group 3.
For the range you will need your handgun, 50 rounds of ammo, ear protection, and eye protection, prescription glasses are ok. Attachments such as optics and lasers must be removed or turned off as they are not allowed to be used during the qualification process. Please see below for specifics on firearms and ammo recommendations.
We recommend that you either wear a ball cap or have hair tied back, wear closed toe shoes, and that you do not wear any loose fitting shirts. For the ladies, we do not recommend getting your nails done prior to qualification as this makes loading and shooting difficult.
If you do not own a firearm and will need to rent one please let us know upon check-in. These are available on a first come/first serve basis.
Qualification times will vary but it is expected to be completed by 4 pm.
Using the quality ammo listed below will help keep the qualification moving quickly and minimize jams and malfunctions. However, due to the ammo shortage, we are not limiting the types of ammo you can use.
