That's awesome. I have not had a chance to dip into PRS, but cannot wait to watch and learn.

In Miami but would be willing to drive up for some organized shoots. A meet at Hollywood Tactical would be pretty cool.

Yup. It sucks, I’m about to start dropping letters in mailboxes anytime I’m in an area with more cows then people.

Tampa here. We can get out to about 700yds on our hunting lease. I think everyone in the TPA/StP/Clwtr area is waiting on news from JTAC. It's a fun read to look at the comments about their recent pricing release.

I had an email exchange some time ago about the pricing or actually the "testing". They're going to offer training there and from the sounds of it, pistol and carbine to begin with. So if that's something you want they're going to make sure you're safe before you get free run of those ranges. I guess this may eliminate some of the problems Manatee had, like clueless people trying to shoot handguns our to 600 yards and aiming at clouds.

I said that I was mainly interested in LR shooting and that I'd do the mid-range membership. I haven't heard anything back however.

No doubt, I don’t want to be out there with a bunch of people that just bought their first weapon and have no idea how to properly use it.

The problem with the pricing is that it’s starting to feel like a dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse—everything is an extra. My daughter is a hell of a shooter but every trip with her would cost a chunk of change.

Melbourne here. I travel constantly for work so consequently don't get a lot of time any more. With Hollywood closing and JTAC still etherware I'm at the point where it's decision time as to whether not not I sell my rifle and just go boating...

You aren’t too far from Volusia County Gun Club.

JTAC just posted an update it's coming along....they are hosting Tactical Games Nov 2nd and 3rd. Last date they volunteered was sometime in October for payment and background check. Keep your chin up it's coming!

As @Temper mentioned, VCGHC group is not too far from Melbourne. If you haven’t been here yet, come shoot with us. It’s not fancy or glamorous, but we’ve got more berms now. From about 120 yards up to 1000 yards. I’ll be running a practice on the 12th of this month for the club. Sign up and come on out with that rifle. 👍🏻😎

I wish. We don't own the property and the landowner also leases out for hunting, so our hours are restricted. Typically, we are 10:00-14:00 or maybe now 11:00-15:00. So 4 hours of long range shooting for $40. Most guys have shot up their ammo and are done by then, but there are some that make best use of time and bring enough or more than one rifle. It’s all steel shooting and there are usually a couple of us that will help out some with spotting as needed. We mostly encourage people to learn how to stay on glass and spot your own hits and misses. Or work in teams of two if needed.

We do have a number of barricades and obstacles set up at the line for those that get bored with prone shooting, but there are no benches set up. If you need to use a bench and have one to bring, you are welcome to do so.

I may bring my old faithful .260 match rifle and probably the .224 Valkyrie AR, but depending on how many show up and how many need help, I may or may not get the rifles out or much. Like everyone else, I like to shoot and while I don’t mind volunteering my time, trigger time is where it’s at. ;)

Was there last month. Great spot!

We had a full value 10-20mph wind and the berms were wet so conditions were pretty tricky but I had a great time. I can’t make it next week but will definitely be back ASAP

Ft LAUDERDALE here, I know it's not central Florida, but this sounds like a great learning experience.

Is there a specific link for this?

I’d be down for some shooting in the near future. Just got done building my ARC Nucleus in 6.5 Creedmoor. Never been out to distance but I follow the info here and Frank’s videos. Got a ketsral, LabRadar, data book, know my scope and turrets, try dope written down, and a solid zero.

My shooting sucks and I’m working on getting better. I can do 1/2moa just not consistently. I hover around the 1moa and have double grouping issues at times. Just have a few more weeks to go till spinal treatment is done.

David.

Well dangit won't make it.....just found out the state extended the gulf snapper season the last 3 weekends of October and I'm going spearfishing. We might just go on Sunday, but the plan is for Saturday at the moment. If it falls though with weather as it can with visibility I'm coming over though!

Riverview here. I mostly shoot 3 gun, Limited Division with only a red dot, I haven't done any true long range shooting yet only long distance at 3 gun matches, my longest hits so far have been 470yds. I am wanting to start doing some long range matches sometime next year after I get a rifle more geared towards shooting past 4-500yds.
