I like the area North of Tampa as it is not very tourist-y but still close enough to go see and do things. Pasco County still has plenty of undeveloped spots to put up a house, plus housing is available, BUT it is beginning to grow.

Isn't that close to Cape Canaveral? I heard on the news that they are going to launch a shuttle there in May after two years hiatus.

Sounds like a good reason to have a party and invite a "few" friends overs. (hint, hint)

I'm Tom (Obviously) and live in Central Brevard County. I'm a pretty rare 5th generation Floridian. I'm a fairly new resident to this area, don't know but a handful of people outside of work.

I shot IDPA in college and was about to jump into three gun... for a county like Brevard I'm really disappointed in the fact that there is nowhere to shoot IDPA/IPSC/3-Gun that I can find.

In fact finding a friendly, inexpensive place to shoot is difficult... The only ranges I've been to that allows me to use leather is up in Titusville at the Police Hall of Fame, and the two LE ranges.

I'm closest to Action Gun - but the lighting is dim and the ventilation is sub-par. Plus I like to be able to work out to at LEAST 25 yds. Nice staff though - and Kim LaGrasso seems to be a pretty good guy.

Port Malabar seemed like it'd be great - but no drawing, and alot of members give you the look of death if you pull out an AR and shoot more than 1 round in 30 seconds.

I've shot "next door" but only get to do that when we have range time. That's a discussion in itself.

I like shooting next to the highway... but that's only on special occasions - I don't get access unless the proper range personnel are on hand to give me the "okay" and I hate feeling like I'm stepping on toes.



Where does the IDPA/IPSC/3-gun crowd from Brevard go to practice anything other than stationary single target hole punching from the ready position?
(I know - Titusville's range is automated, and nice, and ventilated... but it's a haul.)

The public range is off of I75 at Tuckers Grade Rd. It can be busy during the week and downright crazy on weekends.

http://swfsa.tripod.com/ This is a link to the range club I just sent my money to. They limit membership to 300 so, it will take at least a year to get in.

http://www.swfps.com/fmrr.htm is another option. Can't tell you anything about them though.

Hey Dave,

I just got my letter from SWFSA last week. Woohoo! I just dropped my check in the mail yesterday. My fiancee and I can't wait to go. We went to Tuckers Grade once and it was plain scary. I've been patiently waiting for SWFSA to get to my name. I think I filled out the application this past August, so I made pretty good time getting in. Maybe we can meet up and head over there together in the very near future.

ssgt_acft_mech, you ask,

"What do you mean scary? Alot of people or alot of unsafe people?"


The answer to your question is YES! Weekends are especially bad. In my times there I have seen;

Children running around, none of them with ear protection.

One guys' handgun didn't fire when he pulled the trigger so, he's looking at the gun, pulls the trigger again and sends a round flying cross range.

The worst though, was when shooters asked if they could go down range to hang new targets. Guys yell "COLD RANGE! STOP SHOOTING!" About three guys pick up there stuff to walk down range, when I look over and see a guy loading his gun. I yelled out for everyone to stop. The guy loading the gun had no flaming idea what he was doing! There's no doubt in my mind that this guy would have started shooting.

This range is open to the public and has no suppervision.

P.S. What's the attraction to shooting AR's, AK's or any high powered rifle at a 25 yard pistol range? That one I'll never understand.
