So where does everyone in Tampa shoot. I moved up from St Pete and haven't realy found anywhere I like yrt. I would prefer a private range I could join but if public is my only option it will obviously do.

Shooting sports on Dale Mabry. It's public, but you can buy a memberhip.

That is where I shoot when I go...I think it is like $9.00 for the range fees, then the price of targets if you don't bring your own, safety glasses, and ear plugs. Plus, they have some different kinds of guns that you can rent. You can shoot Pistol, Shotgun and Rifle. If you use a shotgun, you can only shoot slugs. The pistol ammunition casing has to be brass and I don't think you can use lead. Depending on where you live, your best bet would be to stop by Walmart down by Best Buy and grab some ammo on the way or there is a gun shop by the Classic Corvettes place on the left hand side of Dale Mabry if you are heading North (It is on a side road, so you will have to keep an eye out for it...when I head down that way again, I will find out the street name). They also have a gunsmith, I think he only works Tuesdays and Thursdays (not sure though). Hope this helps.

Oh yeah, Shooting sports is on North Dale Mabry, just past Hillsborough Ave on the right hand side of the road if you are heading North. It is right next to Cort furniture. Here is the telephone number if you need it....(813) 933-3000

Thanks for info. I left some Blazer ammo in FL to take there. Guess I will have to bring more ammo on the plane then I thought. Do they allow reloads? Is it a lost brass range? I have seen the sign but no time to stop in. Hope this time to do some shooting down there.

I am sure you could take your brass out with you when you leave, they don't sit there and watch over you. After you are done shooting all they ask is that you police your area, which usually entails sweeping up your brass and putting it in trash cans that they have set aside for it. As far as reloaded ammo being used, I think they sell factory reloads at the range, so you would probably have to call and ask them. I tell you what, I will call tomorrow when I get home from work and ask them if they allow reloads or not. Then I will post what they say here.

Just called them about the reloads..."they don't allow outside of factory reloads." So I guess the answer is if you reloaded it yourself, you can't shoot it there.

Lucky for me mine are factory reloads. I make them for myself in my own "factory" :) Very limited production and I am only buyer. :)

So, I guess you could say that you sell everybox you make and customer satisfaction is 100%.:D
