Any good ranges in Central Texas?

I live in the Killeen area and I used to go to Minuteman Rifle Range (on Hwy 195) all the time. While I was home on leave, I went there and it looked closed. A friend confirmed that it hadn't been open in awhile. I have been to Yankee Gunsmith's range and didn't like the confined shooting area. I have also been to Tony's down in Florence, but it was a long drive to go somewhere where I had to stand in line to get one of the five pistol lanes. Does anyone know of any other good ranges in that area? Anywhere from Lampasas to Temple would work. I'll be home in March of 2005 so one that hasn't opened yet but will open soon would be fine. Thanks.

I'm not sure if this will help or if you've already checked this out, but this site gave me a hand http://www.nrahq.org/shootingrange/f...l.asp?State=TX

Tried the website, but didn't find anything close. Are there any other websites out there that list range locations besides the NRA one? I think the NRA one only lists ones that they have "approved", so it is bound to be very incomplete. Thanks.

cpileri,
To get to Yankee Gunsmith, go west on 190 in Copperas Cove until you get to Highway Ave (it's a five-way stop near the west end of town, by an auto parts shop). Go northwest on Highway to 27th Street. Make a right and go to the end. It will turn left into Oak Hill Drive. Follow that to Deer Flat Drive. Yankee Gunsmith is at the intersection of Deer Flat and Oak Hill, on the left IIRC.
