We were at Ares yesterday, they have some concrete forms on the firing line getting ready to pour some slabs. Then they are planning to set some poles and put up some kind of cover over the firing line. Also, some bathrooms in the future.
The mud is a PITA for sure, but Trea (the owner) is pretty cool and is always accommodating to us.

Brew Pop in Auburndale is like a subsidiary to Brew Hub, is closer to Tenoroc and had pretty good pizza.

I'm plugging them because they have good food and there is never anyone there...I don't want them to go out of business.

For the threads' sake, I shoot at Central Florida rifle and pistol club. It's all right. They are overly restrictive on some stuff(NFA, use of steel) in my opinion, but everyone there had always been nice and the ranges are kept up well enough.

I used to shoot at Port Malabar rifle and pistol club, which is a pretty awesome range. I met a lot of asshole members there and even had a dimwit start shooting when I was down range changing my target on the 200 yard range.

Titusville rifle and pistol was ok. Never anyone there and you didn't have to be a member to shoot as long as an RSO was there. Those dudes kept weird hours, hard to plan around.

There is/was a range up on US92 in Daytona, right off I4 that was decent if you got there early or during the work week. Weekends were crazy and you could have crazy wait times.

A buddy and I are going to go to Manatee gun club later this week. I'll report back on that one, although it may be a little further than you care to drive.

Phoenix Gun Club in Brookesville is small and pretty decent, but only open a few days a week. Otherwise Dade City Rod and Gun or Hernando Sportsman's Club.

Ocala public range is unmonitored and scary, but Harry Beckwith has a nice one. I like Teneroc best, but I'm further North.

Wyoming Antelope Club, Florida Chapter in Pinellas County.
100, 50, 25, 12 and 7. Most of the time 4 old guys are sitting and resting pistols with scopes at the 7 yard line. :lol:

I do the same exact thing 😀

Tenoroc for a little shooting, clays, or fishing, then Brew hub or Jimbo’s BBQ
