    So I live in south fl, broward. I been trying to find a good place to practice/train. Ive been shooting since I was a kid with my dad, mostly handguns. I bought my first ar a few months ago n have been tryin to self teach myself. I always thought my father would be around to teach n train me since he was such a big gun enthusiast but a few yr ago he pass due to a heart attack at da age of 54. It sucks not to have that person to help n just be dad to u . Da problem is Im fare from rich n couldnt afford to pay a trainer. What sould I do ??? Any Advice ? Thanks

    Not a bad idea, only thing that sucks down here is there no where to shoot rifle. Unless markem park which I do hate. I got kick out before I even started. My wife left a mag in her pistol n the ro made us all leave. I was our first time there every other range ive gone to did not have a problem as long as its no on u. Go fig

    But it has to frangible ammo, which is pretty costly. Last time I ask at both places.

    Bass pro in dania it has to be hollow point brass cased rifle ammunition. No fmj, I've shot a 30-30 there. And the markham park RO's are sticklers but when you get to know em after shooting there a couple times they can be cool. They are that way because I've seen idiots shoot after he called a halt or people handle firearms while folks are down range it's all about safety to them.

    Are you talking about bass pro? If so yea it gets busy on the weekends I usually go during the week and there's only 1-3 shooters there with me. And if your talking about markham they usually have a good amount of lanes open since they usually only fill up on the weekends.
