Texas Pistol & Rifle Shooting School


"We believe shooting makes better people "

A Private Shooting Range 45 minutes North of Dallas, Texas.

In 1985 on 100 plus acres, U.S. Army Special Forces Sergeant Robert W. Duhon scratched out Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, a private shooting range 45 minutes north of Dallas, Texas in the rural area of Whitewright. Robert began giving ‘handgun’ instruction to Law enforcement, military, and civilian shooters. 25 plus years and hundreds of shooters later, this facility has expanded to 15 different ranges designed to support shooting handgun, shotgun, and rifle classes simultaneously. A State of the art Texas shooting range. The facility is also designed to meet the needs of local and out of town shooters. A guest house and 600-800 yard rifle ranges as well as pick up and delivery from DFW airport are only a few of the amenities awaiting your requests.

Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy's Mission

When you take firearms training in Texas whether related to gun safety courses, license to carry classes or tactical shooting, you want to be sure you get something valuable for your investment of time and money even when you step away from the gun range. At Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, regardless of the weapon platform of pistol, bolt-action rifle, or M4 carbine you get to take home a proven system of weapons manipulation. Whether you pursue African game, Texas whitetail, or tactical shooting Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy delivers a consistent shooting protocol across disciplines that allows the shooter to practice even when they step away from the gun range.


The Takeaway

Shooting a firearm well is a diminishing skill, and unfortunately not everyone has access to a private gun range or can make daily trips to their favorite indoor or outdoor gun range. With the firearms training you get at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, you can take home a procedure to practice that you can use in the privacy of your own home.

A good and well-rehearsed firing stroke will deliver point of aim / point of impact performance when you shoot a live round at a target. Practicing the techniques you learn at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, without any ammunition can generate the same results. Practicing without ammunition is what’s known as dry fire practice and can be an extremely effective practice routine. Regardless of the weapon system you train on at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, you can take home a dry fire protocol that will help you maintain proficiency when you are away from a live fire gun range.

Whether you are a seasoned shooter or completely new to firearms and wish to pursue game or self-defense shooting, Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy in Whitewright Texas can meet all your shooting needs.
