Be a bit more specific, Florida is a big place, there are a number of shooting sports going on at any given time. Are you going to Dismal World and the Tragic Kingdom? If so check out the ranges in the Orlando area. Post a few specifics dates, area etc. & I'll check the calendar. Check out the Florida's Shooters Network for some Florida happenings. Also, check www.packing.org for firearms laws for the states you are traveling through. http://pub49.ezboard.com/bfloridashootersnetwork

PincoPalla, Their are a few nice places to shoot in south Florida. The BEST IMHO is an informal private range we call "Pop's" (unfortunately Pop just past away, but his wife is friendly to the shooting sports). If you would like to take a trip out there for a day while you are in Miami drop me email sflasal@aol.com. We also have GREAT fishing (salt and freshwater) and beaches. Ciao, echo6 AKA Salvatore

There's a free gun range in the Ocala National forest, as well as in the Osceola National Forest near Lake City, where I used to live. If you want a good day trip, away from the commercialism, take your family about an hour north. Go to the Ichetucknee Springs State Park, rent innertubes for everybody. The area is saturated with places to rent. About $4 apeice, for a rental. And when you get out of the river, you just throw the tube in tha appropriate bin... Don't have to take em back. Just a slow, lazy float through the woods in crystal clear spring water. I really miss that trip on a hot summer day. Have fun [url]http://www.dep.state.fl.us/parks/district2/ichetuckneesprings/index.asp[/url] Edited to add link to Park.

Pinco, if you ever get to the Washington DC area, let me know. And yes, I did have fun in FL. Good State to visit.

Gotta stop by the Old South Barbeque Ranch after seeing everyone of their 500 signs. Is that sucker still there? I remember it from about 1975.

There are a few gun stores near Disney in Kissimmee and StCloud. There is Gun Land in Kissimmee on 441 a few miles north of 192. Also there is The Gun Store on 192 on the east side of StCloud. A mile or so east of The Gun Store is Spider Firearms (407-957-3617)on Murcott Dr (just off of 192)in the building behind Discount Auto. This is where the Ferret50's are made. About 15 minutes from us is Central Florida Rifle and Pistol Club. Im a member, so if you are looking to shoot I would be glad to take you out. Dave
