Whether you're new to shooting, gun ranges, or guns all together, we're here to help.
Whats the difference between an indoor and outdoor range?
An indoor range is confined within a building, a relatively small space. At an indoor range noises are louder, spaces are tighter, the air is thicker, and generally its more of a clinical type feeling. An outdoor range offers more freedom of movement, more space, and generally more shooting options. Many things are not allowed at indoor ranges such as children, drawing from a holster, shooting while moving, shooting at metal or explosive targets, shooting certain kinds of ammo, shooting heavy weaponry, etc.
Do I need a "gun license"?
No. A gun license is not a requirement to owning or carrying guns in the state of Texas. There are certain stipulations though on what kinds of guns and where they can be carried. But you can bring any kind of gun into the Odessa Area Outdoor Gun Range including 50+ caliber guns, rocket launchers, mortars, etc. We have ZERO RESTRICTIONS.
Do my guns have to be registered?
No. There is no gun registration in the state of Texas.
Do I have to bring paperwork with my guns?
No. The paperwork means nothing.
Do I have to show an ID?

Is there an age limit?
No. We encourage getting your kids familiarized with guns at an early age.
Do yall explain how the range works?
Yes. We give all new shooters 16 years and older a safety briefing which explains the range operation and a safety briefing card to show every time they come to the range.

What do we need to bring to the O.A.O.G.R.?
