I don't live in Orlando, but I do live in The metro Miami area! Welcome to big city life!! Where handguns are the prominent, desirable weapon! 2 big reasons, obviously outdoor ranges are rare and high population and close quarter living diminishes the need to practice long range shooting for SD! It's all about SD down here and very little to do with nailing Game from 200 yards! I'm not saying that nobody uses a rifle for SD, but I am saying, highly populated areas are largely about concealment and SD from 2 legged creatures from 25 yards in!!

Just found this link. Regarding the one in the Ocala area, I know it was FR 88, but they list it as FR 11. Maybe they renumbered, maybe it's a typo. Google map it if you're interested. You can look for fire towers along Florida SR 40 between Barberville and Mill Dam, and the range is less than 1/2 mile north of the tower.
