    Shooting/gun shops in Florida area???

    Hi guys,


    Im of to Florida in 4 weeks, does anyone know of any good gun shops around the area, I know Bass Pro Shop very well and the likes of Wallmart, are there any other dedicated shooting shops that you might know off in the area?

    Thanks


    Steve.

    i was there in july ,,,
    oak ridge gun range , 7210 gardner st , winter park ,, first impressions , new building , modern , inside i was less impressed , the staff were surly , unintrested and generally uninviting , i was there with my american friend who said they were expensive too, we left

    east orange shooting sports ,6160 ,south orange ave , a bit out the way but well worth the extra effort , the staff were super friendly , the shop bright and welcoming, and the prices fantastic , for $25 you can check out any gun to use , all you do is pay for your rounds, ( ps , it is illegal for a non US citizen to use a gun in orlando,so what they do is get you a permit over the net from Georgia which allows you to use the range ) oh and take your driving license or passport too

    Wish I had known that the last couple of times I have been there! That is one for the 'things to do list' when I get back over again...

    Always check out the sports academy, always a sale on, if looking for hunting cloths at bueina vista shopping mall there's a catalogue return shop in the far left corner, got some wrangler rugged wear trousers in real tree, very hard wearing dirt cheap.
    check out rim fire central, there's a thread on Florida hunting in the hunting thread,give the guys a ring when there, they will put you right on stores.

    I was there in June, went to Base Pro Shops 5156 International Drive Just take a packed lunch the place is that big, you take a ticket and wait your turn for service. Stuff is much cheaper than here. There also on line. Went to a few smaller shops looking for some parts- they all said if base pro hasn't got it you would be struggling.
