Decisions, decisions, decisions
So we went for a little Sunday drive this afternoon to see another piece of commercial property in Amarillo, this time a 30 x 100 metal shop on 10 acres that used to be a driving range. There's a 1000-lb hoist that can move the length and width of the shop, and it has all utilities and full fencing. Triangle Drive is a nice industrial road north of Amarillo with a Mueller Metal Buildings shop at one end and J. Lee Milligan Trucking at the other. And scattered through the middle is a variety of industrial and commercial businesses.
As a matter of fact, one long-term business is right next door to this property, within 10-15 feet actually. It's the Studio 1 Adult Bookstore and "Smoke Shop" (technically "Head Shop" but pairing that with porn just lends itself to too many jokes). As I've been told by people in the know, Studio 1 has been in that location for many, many years, and is seldom a place of unrest.

Now, I'm an adult with an eye for a bargain, and at $80,000 I know I can do a lot with this place. My first thought is an indoor/outdoor range. A nice big 40x100(?) ft building for an indoor range and then a nice outdoor setup. You know, as long as the sound of gunfire doesn't bother the patrons next door. Hell, this is Texas, would probably turn 'em on harder.
Anybody know if there are any rules against firearms being next door to titties and a head shop?
