    Ive been searching the net, and cant seem to find an answer to this question.

    I would think that ten miles off-shore would work nicely.

    Sorry I can't name some ranges but I bet if you ask at a local gun shop , they will know what is in your area .

    If no public ranges, consider joining an Izaak Walton League chapter, Fish and Game or Rod and Gun club . Usually, someone will sponsor you and you meet great people there ...

    There is some kind of shooting range national registry online that list's all the shooting ranges ever registered for a license. Problem is tho they have ALL of them so 3 out of the 6 i found in my county were already shut down and gone with age!!

    I did google, but as far as a reputable one, when you google it doesnt tell you **** about wether its a good place or not.

    Wonder your not going to know if they are good or not until you visit them. Someone might tell you it's a great range then when you show up it is less than great for you.

    I have a good range ten minutes from where I live but I like another range better that is 45 minutes away. If asked why I like one over the other it's hard to express, both are good ranges, might be as simple the people in the lobby or the people I shoot with. Hard to express but something you will understand when you find your home range.

    Take your time and you will find the right range for you:)

    Also looking for a range with rentals

    Hi All,

    My first post!

    I am travelling from the UK next week and looking for a range that offers semi and full auto rentals.
    I have a great place I shoot handguns, but looking for somewhere else to indulge my love of all firearms types.
    Anyone any ideas.
    Found somewhere called Aces near Miami, but its a bit of a trek from Orlando?
    Any advice gratefully received!

    Thanks
    Paul

    Paul, Miami is about a 4 hour drive from Orlando. Most gun ranges in the Orlando area rent pistols and some rent assault rifles also. However, these are semi automatics, not fully automatic.

    Wonderwyrm, I've been to the Shoot Straight in Apopka quite a few times and its pretty nice. They have a huge selection if your looking to buy. I don't think they rent anymore though because they've had two people commit suicide with rented guns at the one in Cassleberry in the past few months. They have maybe 12 booths in the pistol range and 2 in the rifle range. Last time I went range fee was $12. Here's their website:

    Shoot Straight - Home

    Hope this helps.
