The Robson Ranch Gun Club is made up of seven different interest groups. In addition to a monthly meeting, groups like the Women’s Group, Clay Targets Group, Antique Gun Group, Retired Law Enforcement Group, Tactical Handgun Group, Reloading Group and Hunting Group hold individual meetings. The September 12 general meeting is going to be a field trip to the Shilen Rifle Company in Ennis, Texas. Shilen Rifle, one of only a few in the United States, is known for making extremely accurate barrels. Interested members and anyone from the Ranch who would like to take the tour will meet in the parking lot of the Clubhouse at 9:00 a.m. on September 12.

In group news the Clay Targets Group has grown to about 30 members. Recently a second clay target course was added to the regular Wednesday shooting day. The new course, DFW Clay Target Sports, is located inside DFW Adventure Park near Texas Motor Speedway. The site has five skeet/trap fields and one practice trap set up. It also has a 10-station sporting clays course laid out among live oak and mesquite trees, marshes and ponds so that several of the target presentations are over water. The other regular clay shooting venue is Fossil Point North of Decatur.

Every Thursday at 9:00 a.m. the Tactical Pistol Shooters meet at the Clubhouse to travel to a gun range for a fun match. Everyone is invited to participate regardless of your skill level. Joseph Ace is available to assist any interested shooters.

Other groups in the Gun Club are scheduling fall meetings after a busy summer. To join the Gun Club and learn about all of the activities, email Dave Parker at There is no yearly fee to belong to the club.
