Given the large number of people I see at the ranges in the Ft. Myers-Naples area I'm surprised there is not more activity on this forum. I'd like to see more.

When I am in Naples I frequent Louland at Port of the Islands for rifle and pistol. Any other good places? Been to Fowlers and Shoot Straight, but prefer Lou's.

Lou has the only outdoor range in the area and we've shot there for a couple of years. Nice guy but the annual rate is a little steep. We haven't found any other place others than those you mentioned.

The Sheriff's range is open to the public the first and third Saturdays of each month. No charge but restricted to pistols.

There is a new range being built by ft lauderdale
But that's all I know about it.
I shoot an M1A and pistols and go Wed. am. when in town. Joined a club here with a 200 yd bench rest. It's a hike, but for IL not many choices.

I used to shoot at the outdoor range up at the burnt store road exit. It was just south of north port. Anyone know if its still open?

Still open and probably a whole lot different than you might remember.
