Default Looking for a low key kid friendly rifle range near southern DFW

My girls drew a GDE hunt this yr and we are mainly bow hunters. I need to get them to a rifle range preferably something that has over 100yds and not alot of action. Don't mind paying a decent amount if its private. We have alpine range nearby but that place makes even me gun shy when people are shooting arm canons right next to you. Just need to get them some rifle prctice as we will have some longer shots possible.
any where from sounthern DFW to waco would be ideal.

Arlington Sportsman's Club would be your answer. I'm not a member, but there are a couple on here that have offered up visits in the past. It's usually low key and have longer ranges. That's where I learned to shoot when I was a young lad.

This looks great but hoping for a daily fee place or somewhere I can just make a "donation" for 1-3 trips between now and Jan. I'm a gun fan and shot alot during my younger yrs. We don't shoot much anymore so no need to be a memeber.

I don't have any areas that open more than 50-60 yds and I don't like to shoot out there much so I don't scare deer off

Pigeon Road in Stephenville might work, I think you can pay a fee to shoot there.

Triple C range out in Cresson has a 100-200 yard range that is typically pretty quiet.

They have a decent range with up to 200yards if I remember right?? Think it's less than $10 per shooter and no time limit. Pretty good place for rifle products and very good for archery (range also) as well. Several shooting stations with rests and covers.

Allen will custom make arrows and they also do both firearm and bow repair.
