You nailed it. I live 5 minutes from them, litteray 3 miles away, and drive over an hour to "enjoy" my range visits every weekend. Not to mention they have ZERO ventilation and NO a/c so after 10 minutes you have lead poisoning, smell like ****, and feel like you smoke 20 packs of cigarrettes all the while sweating like you ran 5 miles. nope, ill never ever ever never ever go there if it were the last range on this planet. the managers cocky, and could care less. He even had the balls to tell me he personally buys most of his ammo from walmart and puts a markup on it because "he has to make money and walmsrt sells ammo cheaper than he can get it"
The next closest range i go to that has rentals is off us1 right after the airport in vero beach. nice place, emplyees, range time is 10 all day, rentals available, and great prices on guns along with cold a/c. Dont really know the name of it. they are a pawn shop/gun shop/gun range all in one.
The next choice for me is shoot straight. no a/c, but livable. good ventilation. off of southern blvd. just opened. not sure on the rentals... like vero, you can bring own ammo, 13 shoot all day, 11 if you buy their ammo and huge selevtion of firearms thats are priced at retail that you have to "talk them down on" so price around and do your homework.
I LOVE to go to indian river outdoor range in sebastian off i-95. no rentals, 10 all day fee, shoot own ammo, and just very peaceful. of course, when you get your own firearms, check em out.
Hope this was helpful. Anyone wanna go in on opening a st lucie range thats shuts self defense down? lol...
