Florida shooting Experiences

#1
Hi
Im going to Florida in Sept, i would like to go to a Rifle Range and have a go at a wide range of weaponry not normally available in the UK.
is there any Americans here who can point me toward any range near Orlando that i can go for shooting experiences?

many thanks
Semper :D

Saves me having to book and go on a training course in a military ranges with all the admin hassle that go with it, when i would just rather just turn up and shoot.

I couldn't be arsed getting a gun licence here(UK) as they make you go through the hoops to get one, when any Gangsta would just go down to a dodgy pub and pick one up for £30 etc
Tighting the gun laws makes no difference to them. :roll:

We went to orlando and my hubby took me into a place called
The Shooting Gallery
2911 w. 39th st.

belongs to universal weapons and is near enough opposite the jail.
tel = 407 428 6255


sorry that's as much as i know about it.

Semper, I live in Central Florida. PM me and let me know where you are going to be and when. I'll find you a decent place to shoot and maybe even come pop off a few with you.

And do you want to shoot pistol, rifle or both?

Both, in for a penny in for a pound, be nice to do that.

How about because the AK47 is a military assault rifle the primary purpose of which is to kill people. Letting ignorant rednecks keep them under the sofa tends to result in innocent people dying.

A wholesome dread of being shot, by the intended victim, deters would-be killers and marauders.

Those who won't be thus deterred need killing.

Kalashnikov-type rifles weren't banned under the Clinton Crime Bill. The further importation of AK-47s and AK-47 clones (such as the Chinese MAK-90) was banned.

Those that were already over here were as legal as before.

That's why I own two, I want to be able to shoot back. :D

Semper, if you ever come back, let me know ahead of time and I'll come shoot with you. Between work and hurricanes, I forgot you were here.

no worries mate, while i was there on the second visit to the range, i also fired off a Browning, M16 and a Beretta sub machine gun.

do you know "the shooting gallery" 39th street orlando ? it not too far to go , i know off a few others and the next time i will try to go to them,

had a close call re the hurricanes, Ivan changed path at the last minute and left Florida with 3 hours to spare before Jeanne came along :wink:

I think it is located right off of I-4...been years since I was there was one of the few places that rent full autos.

Now that Knights Shooting opened in my neck of the woods [Tampa Bay Area] we have moved up to a full auto range kinda town. :D

As a cause of "innocent people dying," governments, confronting disarmed civilian populations, have civilian gun owners beaten by a generous margin.
I'm still pissed off with Blair for taking my Smith & Wesson 686 when the little sh1t came to power, I only had two pistols then, I have got nine rifles now!
Mrs Tombs keeps saying "what do you want another rifle for?"....................................Wimmin.............they just don't understand an armed nutter do they?
