Range to Practice USPSA

Post by nunez » Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:57 pm

I'm looking for a list of ranges with bays that I am able to practice USPSA and Steel Challenge. Setting up multiple targets and be able to move around and shoot.

Thank you for the help!

Doesnt matter to me. If I have to pay a fee, monthly or yearly membership that is fine with me.

It would help if we knew what part of Fla you're located.
You can add your location to your 'profile', like you see in the other member's avatars.

Sorry about that, dumb mistake. I'm located in South Florida, specifically Pembroke Pines.

If you don't find a suitable place to practice, think about using airguns in your garage instead.
Really, no kidding, they are about as good as .22s, especially the modern blowback versions with surprisingly realistic accuracy and recoil.
And 22s have been a useful way to practice for centerfire forever.
Now, so are airguns.
I once had two outdoor ranges to practice.
One got closed down due to fools acting like fools, and the other had to place such restriction for the same reason that made it useless.
So I switched to airguns, just like a lot of folks, including those you would recognize as some of the top shooters in the country.
Heck, in the world, even.
I have quite a complete range at home now with swinging targets, movers, barricades, all the ingredients that would be difficult to reproduce anywhere other than at an official match.
It works amazingly well for practice, far better even than the well respected dry firing that is universally recommended.
And at a tiny fraction of the cost of live fire at a range.
Be glad to share info on how to do it if you're interested.
Just a thought.

Another vote for homestead. If you have any RO credentials you can rent a bay. You can even rent props.
If you are a member same thing.

But you can make tremendous improvement with dry fire and you can do that anytime. Pick up any of Ben stoeger or Steve Andersons books. It's a lot cheaper also

The South Florida Pistol Club has practice matches at Markham Park. Google their website.

Steel challenge is usually the 3rd or 4th Sunday of the month. Or something like that.

Thank you all for the responses.

I dry fire every day and have all the books/dvds by Stoeger and Anderson. They are great resources.

I'm also a member of SFPC and shoot their matches.

The dryfire idea is interesting but then you have those small BBs all over the place [smilie=011.gif]

The closets range to me is Pop's Range, which I've taken a class on, but have heard negative things as well. Let me know if you have a different experience as its only 9mins away from me.

I think I'm going to go the Homestead route although its 45mins away. Become a member and eventually become an RO.

Thank you all.

Steel Challenge is the 2nd Sunday at MP with SFPC.
Outlaw Steel at MP has been going on for 19 years on the 4th Sunday at MP.
Both pistol caliber only.
