Pasadena Texas Shooting Dentist:
Hi, I am Michael. I am a dentist who practices in Pasadena, Texas. My office is located at 3421 Burke Rd, Pasadena, Texas 77504. The focus of my dental practice is Cosmetic, General, Implant and Sedation Dentistry. I was honored to be voted BEST PASADENA DENTIST multiple times by the Pasadena Citizens Newspaper.
As a child, the only gun I owned was a Red Ryder BB gun. In my parents back yards many aluminum cans fell to my marksmanship. Then came junior high and high school sports and I stopped shooting my BB gun. Then college, dental school, marriage, kids and life happened.
I was married to a wonderful woman and already had one amazing daughter. My hobbies were riding dirt bikes and playing online video games. Then my second daughter came along and my dirt bike time got dramatically reduced. I needed a new hobby! I have all females at home and all females at my Pasadena Dental Office. I needed a very testosterone rich hobby. What better hobby for a Texas guy then shooting guns.
My first real gun was a Smith and Wesson M&P 15-22. This rifle looks and operates just like an AR-15 but is chambered for the .22lr cartridge. I take this gun to the range every time I go because it is so fun, and because it’s a .22, it’s much more affordable to shoot a lot!
Now I needed a pistol. If one pistol is good, two pistols are better. I bought a Smith and Wesson 23a and a Ruger Mark II. Both these pistols use the .22lr. The new hobby of shooting was officially started.
The main place I shoot at is PSC gun range in Friendswood. It is an amazing outdoor range. I like to go on Fridays when I am off work. It is not crowded and most of the time I can have individual ranges all to myself.
Although I am new to the sport of shooting I love talk to my patients about guns. I am a proud LIFETIME member of the National Rifle Association and a LIFETIME member of the Texas State Rifle Association. I have my concealed hand gun license,Curio & Relic License and Federal Firearms License.

Shooting is a great and fun sport. But when handling firearms there are important safety rules:
- ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction
- ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
- ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use
- Know your target and what is beyond
- Know how to use the gun safely
- Wear proper eye and ear protection
- Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons
