On Hwy 6 - right before Santa's Wonderland... There is a metal building with a small pond next to it. From the building to the pond is a long, wide tube. Anyone know what that thing is?

I see it all the time, going out of town. But, there is no sign on the building.

I believe it's a gunsmith and that's their contained range.

That is Bill Wiseman and Co.

They test rifle barrels in it.

Thanks for ruining my imagination. I just knew it was an accelerator that created a wormhole.

Years ago, I was told it was a gun smith. But after several years, when I saw that tube built - I thought it was some kinda science thing.

Interesting... Thanks

He used to have an underground tunnel in his old building. I worked for him about 10 years ago and he is a brilliant guy. Retired marine and Olympic shooter.

That's actually what it is. We just have to tell people it's a gun range.

Did Arrowhead gun range use to be on the back side of that pond in the early 1990s? I swear we used to shoot skeet there with the A&M Trap and Skeet club. We had a great time!

Arrowhead has always been on Hwy 6 towards Hearne, in the 1990s. Unless it was there prior tow hen I moved here.

Yes arrowhead use to be on six close to Wisemans location. If my memory serves me Jim Broom was the older gentleman that ran it.
I did a lot of Skeet shooting there in the mid 80's.

I have always wanted to come on here and ask the same question. I always assumed that it was a hyperloop test track.

Arrowhead was in the vicinity of Santa's Wonderland in the 80s
