    Legal age in FL for shooting at the range without legal guardian

    What age would someone have to be to go to the range with me and not need their legal guardian? My cousin wants to learn to shoot, and my uncle encouraged him to go with me sometime and see if it's something he'd enjoy. However, he is not 18 and I think that means that his father would have to go with him. Unfortunately he works 2nd shift during the week so can't come with us after work and I don't really enjoy standing around on weekends waiting for a lane to open up at one of the few ranges around me.

    I had a hard time locating any info regarding this. Does someone have to be 18 to go to the range in FL without their legal guardian? I think yes but I would like to know for sure so I can tell him.

    I believe that you might want to contact the individual range that you are planning on going to...ask them!

    A range I go to use to be 21,they had a couple of guys show up one was 18 the other 17,they told them the range rules,I was about ready to leave,but offered to watch them while they shot.RO said ok and after going over firearm safety rules and range rules I observed while they shot and within about 1/2 an hour were done shooting and left the range happy.

    The public range in Sebastion is 10-17 with direct supervision of an adult. It probably varies by range.

    I've taken my grandson and granddaughter to the range and their ages were 14 and 11. They fired both the 40 and the 38 snub, and had a great time. At our range as long as the young are properly supervised by an adult and follow the rules, they are welcomed.

    DEPENDS on Range SOPs. ALL in my area Req. 18 & under to be "supervised". ( ALL req. 21 or over to shoot "handguns" - State law = 21 to possess.)

    It seems to vary then depending on where you're going to. Guess I'll call around and see what's up. Thanks for the responses. I thought it would be more of a minimum age limit.
