Well, after buying my first rifle, it seems I don't really have anywhere to shoot it. I'm also looking for an IDPA spot, but I think once you join IDPA you can use the affiliated ranges on match days so that's a second priority. I live in west central Orlando, next to Universal Studios, and the only places I've been able to find are:

1)Shoot Straight (only 25yds, one shot per second, and $14!)
2)Central Florida Pistol/Rifle Club (closest, but almost $300 to join! and there's not really any website description)
3)Road End Range (not too bad at $155/year, but rifle only goes to 100 yards)
4)Seminole County Gun and Archery (a little cheaper than Road End, has more lanes, and goes to 300 yards, but they're almost an hour away with plenty of tolls in between)

I guess that's about it. All the local indoor ranges don't let you shoot rifle rounds that aren't frangible (if at all) and only go to 25 yards at the most. And all the membership only outdoor places above are at least 30 minutes away.

Anyone from around my parts know anywhere else to shoot? Right now I'm leaning towards Road End. It seems pretty casual and is a relatively short and cheap drive down I-4 away. But the 100 yard cap will definitely be a downer when I get a long range rifle :/.

Thanks for any tips :)

I need to know as well. I still haven't gotten to shoot my SKS. :sad:

It's pretty dissappointing that a big city like Orlando doesn't have a good rifle range :(

I don't know if you are willing to make the drive but Tenoroc park has a great facility. It is located almost exactly between Tampa and Orlando. They have a pistol range, a 100 yard rifle range, and a skeet and trap range. Im not sure about the prices exactly because I usually go with a group but it is a great facility. Here is the address:
Tenoroc Shooting Sports:
3755 Tenoroc Mine Rd, Lakeland, FL 33805

If you mapquest it it's easy to find.

Here's a link to ranges in Florida; http://www.wheretoshoot.org/Find_Range/wts_subresults.asp

Hope something is close by.

You can shoot IDPA at Central Florida Pistol/Rifle Club without joining. I shoot there sometimes and also at Titusville - a real laid-back place to shoot with some fun matches.
