Lakeland, Florida
This range has 14 positions for 50 yard rifle shooting. It has pistol shooting up to 15 yards and includes trap, sporting clays and 5 stand shooting. It is a public range.

"Great experience and love the upgrades since the FFWCC took over!" writes a reviewer on Google.

2. Indian River County Shooting Range
Sebastian, Florida
This range is operated by the county of Indian River. The gun range offers a pistol range with 35 firing stations. There are 29 stations in the rifle range, which extends to 200 yards. The facility also includes sporting clays, skeet, trap and archery shooting. The majority of the many reviews give the facility five stars. 

"I am a new shooter and was a pit intimidated on my first visit," writes a reviewer on Google. "The range officers came off as overbearing and rigid. Subsequent visits I learned the routine and completely appreciate the level of professionalism and attention to safety."

3. Firing Line Gun Range
Port Richey, Florida
This indoor gun range also rents and sells guns. They have a 25-yard range and promise to work with beginners learning to shoot. The store offers a rental package that includes all protective gear, 50 rounds of ammunition, a target and basic instruction on how to use the rental gun.

"I came here to test out my new rifle. Staff was courteous and prompt. The shooting range could use a bit of updating but not a bad place by any means. I would go back here if in the area again," writes a reviewer on Google.

4. Arizona Shooting Range & Emporium 
Lauderdale Lakes, Florida
This range has eight shooting lanes for pistol and rifle shooting. They also have a variety of rental guns, and have a "try before you buy" policy. They offer safety classes including one specifically for "preppers."

"Beautifully maintained shop and range. The staff I met were extremely courteous and knowledgeable. The cost of range usage and range ammo is extremely reasonable and the range itself is clean and the choice of targets is more than sufficient. They are very strict in making certain that anyone requesting to use the range is qualified to handle a firearm safely ..." writes reviewer on Google. 

5. Santa Rosa Shooting Center
Pace, Florida
This facility was formerly operated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, but is now privately owned. While membership is available, the public is also welcome to shoot at the gun range. The large facility offers over 20 pistol and 15 rifle positions for shooting. The rifle range has target positions up to 100 yards. The pistol range extends to 25 yards. It is always staffed with a safety officer. They also offers skeet and trap, sporting clays and 5 stand shooting.

"No better options in Northwest Florida. The people are nice and the range masters are very good. I went on a weekday so it wasn't crowded. Just a good time shooting," writes a reviewer on Google. 

6. Tallahassee Indoor Shooting Range 
Tallahassee, Florida
This indoor shooting range also sells used and new firearms, as well as archery equipment. They sponsor a women's shooting group that meets monthly. The indoor gun range allows high powered rifles in seven 50 yard lanes. There are 15 pistol and shotgun lanes that extend to 25 yards.

"I've been into a lot of gun shops and felt like 'I didn't fit in.' so I didn't get the customer service I deserved. But when I walked into Tallahassee ISR I was immediately greeted and helped when I walked in," writes a reviewer on Google, who was not alone in giving the location a five star rating.
