I go to Al's All American Concealed. It's outdoor, cheap and folks running it are very nice. They have a cool gift shop too for the wife to look around in when she gets tired of shooting. I didn't take my concealed class there, but i hear their classes are good. Kids shoot free.

They used to offer classes for women-only so they wouldn't feel intimidated or something. Not sure if they still do but the guy who runs their training business is on the Texasshooting.com chl forum i'm on a lot. He knows his stuff.
Avoid Hot Wells! The facility is in poor condition, the staff are lame and it is dangerous.
Hot Wells is close to my office, so one day I thought I would try it over my lunch break. I had just finished a magazine and was reloading when a kid showed up to the pistol range with a scoped revolver (never got close enough to make out the brand/model). Seriously, the scope overhung the barrel by three inches!
With the 'staff' watching him, this moron fired three rounds - one into the air, one into a tree just off the range and one into the ground about 3 feet off of the bench.
The other shooters all stopped and looked to the 'staff' to take charge and get this kid off the range. Instead, the 'staff' shrugged his shoulders and went into the office.
Needless to say, the shooters made a hasty exit and left this kid on his own.
If you want a quality, well-managed range, try American Shooting Center on Westheimer. It's a great facility with a staff that understands weapon safety and discipline.
I usually go to the Gun Emporium [11400 Farm-To-Market Road 2854] because its closest to me. The prices are average and they always have a range person standing right there watching and keeping it safe. The shop has a good selection of guns. They biggest problem is that there is no shade unless your right in the seat shooting. Expect to huddle under 1 tree during shooting brakes.
Oh yeah Ive also gone to the Thunder Gun Range [17234 FM 1314 Rd]. The shooting area is elevated and the seats are adjustable for height which I like. They have music playing and the range person talks over the intercom too. They shop doesnt have anything worth while. The prices are alittle higher than average, they make all the money off the targets because they wont let you cover holes with the shoot-n-see stickers.
