I got a call from a long-time friend in Florida (Palm Coast area) who is considering buying her first gun for personal protection. I offered to give her some advice, but only if she agreed to get some professional training. Are there any ranges in that area that cater to this need, including formal classes, or personal instruction? I am in NC, and can't help her with the training, and her only shooting experience is with one of my AR-15s with a .22LR conversion in an indoor range, years ago.
Also, is there a good source for information on purchase rules--I don't think she is ready for CCW yet? How about reputable dealers in the area who won't look down on noobs, or give her a hard time?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Have her check out

My son lives in Palm Coast. The last time I was there I stopped in to visit. He has a small shop and is an instructor.
