    Cental FL Members, I need some help.

    I will be returning to the States for a (much needed) vacation and would like to get in some range time while I am there. I am hoping some of the CFL locals (and I know there are a few of you!) can lend a helping hand.

    Here's what I am looking for: A decent handgun range with handgun rentals. Ideally, I'd like them to have a Kahr PM9, but I know that is probably not going to happen. Any Kahr will do in a pinch - I'm seriously looking to buy one and I'd like to get a feel for the trigger, the sights, the recoil out of such a small package...the usual.

    Even better would be if a local member (or two!) wanted to meet up for a shoot and let me test their small autos. I know, a big request from an internet stranger, but I'm throwing it out there.

    I'll be in town (Celbration, specifically) from around the 15th of August through the 3rd of September. I can travel pretty much anywhere on the I-4 corridor...

    Thanks in advance for all of your help.

    Cool

    I'm 6 hours north in the panhandle. Not much up here, things are much better in Central Fl. If you're interested in the PM9, be sure to look at the MK9 Elite. Have a nice vacation.

    OPFOR,

    No Kahr's here, but I am about an hour away on the Brevard beaches.

    I know of 2 local ranges, and I will check to see what they have for rent, then let you know.

    There's a great little indoor range with rentals in Ormond Beach, near Daytona. It's called Hot Shot, and I even think one of the employees is a member here. I'd be happy to punch some paper with ya ! PM if interested.

    Well, I'm no where near Florida, I tend to stay a few hundred miles north. I do have a PM9 that I'd let you thrash for a few hours, if you found your way north.

    Check out Shoot Straight in Apopka, 1349 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Apopka, Fl 32703. Ph 407-889-0842, hr Mon-Sat 10 am to 9pm, Sun 11am to 7 pm. It is on the outskirts of Orlando along hwy 441. They have an indoor range and a large stock of rental guns to choose from. Also a well stocked rental section with most popular handguns in stock and on display. From the Celebration area, I'd say you would have about a 45 minute ride. Take I-4 heading EAST to the Maitland Blvd exit. Exit and head west and remain on Maitland Blvd until it intersects with Hwy 441 ( about 2 to 3 miles ), make a right turn on to 441. Continue several miles, you'll be passing a Walmart on the left, then continue on a few more blocks and you'll see Shoot Straight on your right, It looks like an Old West building. Enjoy yourself in FL.

    Hot Shots

    You're welcome to shoot at Hot Shots just outside of Daytona. We have a couple of Kahrs, a few T9 and T40s and an MK9. I don't think we have a P series in stock anymore. I'll be glad to bring in my MK40, it's becoming a safe queen lately.
