Pistol caliber only?
That's a new one.
Not much in the way of choice there.
Sounds like a good reason to buy another rifle.
Lots of pistol caliber rifles these days.

It is a small place wedged right in the city. It is kind of a miracle it still exists at all. It would never be allowed in new. It is very near a bunch of residences and businesses. Google map it.

You are not moving to a very shooting friendly area. High population and scarce land assures scarcity of shooting venues. I live in Weston, and although Markham Park is less than 4 miles away, I have not shot there in over seven years. I am into competitive shooting and the Markham Park facility is not suitable for significant or complex stages. I shoot matches almost every single weekend but I travel to the venues. The closest venue is the range in Homestead right by the Air Force Base. I also shoot at the OK corral in Okeechobee. I also travel to the West Coast and shoot in Punta Gorda. I have heard rumors that the current owners of Altair facility off of 75 as you get close to Naples or opening a competitive shooting facility in their southern range .

Nope, not that one. There was another Altair range called Deep Lake Facility, on 29. The range being worked on there will be called Deep 50. Not sure when it will open.

Gator tactical is north of I75, is the other one you are speaking about the old Altair that was south of I75?
