    Well hell, if we are going to have State Forums I definitely want to be in on the Florida one.

    I'm over in Naples on the Gulf side. I shoot at the State run gun range up on the Babcock Ranch in Punta Gorda just off I-75. It's a pretty good place to shoot. The Range Officers are friendly and helpful, but they could use a few more lanes on the pistol range. The waiting lines get pretty long many times.

    Ya'll take care!!! :cool:

    Anyone ever try Gander Mountain's indoor range in Lake Mary?

    A buddy of mine did. They go through a lot of prep before you do shoot, and it was $25 per hour when he shot. He since has done the simulations, and thinks they are a better deal.

    Good to have a local/Florida forum here. I'm in Brevard County.

    I'm looking for a competent gunsmith around here; a few years back I heard about one and tried him, be he was not really a gunsmith and couldn't fix a minor problem, in fact he refused to even try. He was more of a cleaner & accessory installer.

    Your near Orlando shouldn't be hard to find one. Bwe firearms seems to have a lot of people recommending them on the net and a 1/2 drive is worth quality work I would think.

    I'll probably have to look over there, but I'd rather find someone closer in Brevard County.

    OK, I'll be next then

    I'm in Naples and as mentioned before the state park is a good choice but decent ride. The CCSD range is open to the public the first and thrid Saturdays of each month. Pistols only and there is no cost.

    About eight (8) or (9) deputies act as range masters and are very helpful.

    Check out the following:

    There is also Cecil Webb gun range at the tucker's grade exit on 75 in Punta Gorda. Cost is $3 per visit or buy your WMA Pass from FWC and you can access any WMA (wildlife management area) in Florida for 1 year.

    I'm in Jacksonville and shoot at Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club. They have a multitude of outdoor rifle and pistol ranges and an indoor airgun range. The annual membership is a little over $100.00 per year for unlimited use. Also have a 100 yard range at the hunting club that I belong to so I have plenty of places to let the lead fly.

    I'm north of Jacksonville near the state line. I sometimes go to the indoor range at 2nd Amendment in Yulee.
    I also have used the state range at Osceola national Forest in Lake City, but the range at Dixon WMA south of Waycross, Georgia is closer. Georgia recreational permit needed, but it's only $20 per year.
    I've thought about Gateway in Jax, but that's a little too expensive for me.
