Many thanks.. I have looked at those 2 ranges via their websites (200 yards are good enough with these eyes :)) Have you been to both how would you rate them??
Do you prefer one over the other??

Central Fl goes out to 300 yds.
Pros: good firing line with overhead cover to stay out of the sun.
Cons: heat & mosquitos can be life threatening in summer. [smilie=011.gif]

Port Malabar has multiple areas for different shooting disciplines out to 600 yds.
Pros: once you're a member, unlimited access
Cons: you will need to be certified for certain areas, due to the unlimited access.

I've been a member at both clubs for years.

Seminole County Gun and Archery Club has a 300 yard rifle range.
Located North of Orlando, North of State Road 46, just North of Geneva.
They are also the only 50 BMG friendly and NFA friendly club in the area.
