Open Carry is legal in Texas however Greenwood Gun Club does not allow open carry on premise. Open carry is not compatible with range safety and club rules. In order to continue to ensure safety on our ranges, there will be no open carry on Greenwood Gun Club property.
You are still permitted to conceal carry on GGC property if you have a CHL, but do not mix your shooting experience and concealed carry. If you draw from concealment it is breaking club rules. Act as you would in a public place. Displaying your firearm in a non-emergency situation would be considered "brandishing".
