Manatee is a beautiful range, but it is out quite a ways. For a good 100 yard range a little closer to home, check out the Dade City Rod & Gun Club, HWY 52 about 7.5 miles east of Interstate 75. Open every day but Thursday, 9-4. $10 for non-member adults, $3 for supervised kids. Single or family memberships $75 a year, $50 initation fee. No shooting fee for members, except match fees.

Across the bridge in Pinellas county is the Wyoming Antelope Club, they have up to a 100 yd range but it's single shot only unless you've completed the CMP. Take your own ammo because they don't sell any there. Call them at 727.573.3006

I live in Tampa and would like to know where this is. I currently go to friend's house in Pasco and shoot on his property. Also, there is an indoor range on Dale Mabry Hwy (straight north of the base). Not sure what the fees are, though.

Funny thing about that range on Fowler (by Big Top) is that it is a trailer. Like, half a mobile-home type of trailer.

The range here in Manatee Co.is the ONLY range thats over 300yards in central Florida, excluding private property.

Dude I was at a gun show and there was a guy handing out info on the range,at the time it was 300 yards but he said it would be 1,000 by the end of the month. You say it's in Manatee? Maybe you and I are talking about the same rangeand I just don't know it.

There is also the indoor St. Petersburg Police Range on 16th St in St. Pete. It was about $6 to $10 a day to shoot, but it has been a few years since I've been there. It was nice range, though. A police friend of mine says that she shoots right on MacDill AFB, but I'm not sure where. I'm waiting for her to take me so I'll find out.
