The TMLRA was founded in 1946, with the 1st few shoots being held at Camp Mabry in Austin,  then moving on to Brownwood and San Angelo.  In 1966, the TMLRA moved to Brady and we’ve called it home ever since.

Our range is located at the Kenneth Medlock Range, on the Judge Resley Trail, just west of Brady, adjacent to Brady Lake. (see the map)

Sign to the Shooting RangeOur camp grounds sit on approximately 12 acres.  The grounds include electric and water hook-ups as well as his and hers bathroom/shower facilities.

There are 3 events scheduled each year.  The Frost On The Cactus Shoot is held in March,  the Texas State Championship Shoot in June and the Fall Blanket Shoot, being held in October.  We shoot under a 465ft covered firing line at numerous styles of targets at ranges of 25yds, 50yds, 100yds and 200yds.  Our facilities also include a silhouette range as well as a shotgun range where competition is at ranges of 8,12,16 and 20yds.
