Central Florida machine gun questions

Hello all,

I'm pleased to report I've finally moved to a far more 2A friendly state... central FL to be exact.

One thing I've wanted to do for quite some time is legally acquire a MG - I'm interested in perhaps a MAC or an UZI; funds thus restricting my choices. Anyway, I understand there's abundant information online regarding the process with the ATF, so I won't belabor the point here. However, I did have some specific questions:

1. Has anyone had any trouble acquiring the necessary CLEO signature in Seminole County, FL?

2. Where do FL folks who own MG's typically shoot? The private range I've been to (Central Florida Rifle & Pistol Club) prohibits them; I couldn't really find any other place in the area that permits them. Can anyone just shoot in the woods like some can do in other states?

3. Can anyone recommend a reputable dealer in the Central FL area?

Thank you!

The State Range at Sebastian allows full auto at certain times of the day. There was a guy blasting away with an M-60 one time when I was there. It's been awhile since I've been down there so give them a call to verify. I don't know what the CLEO attitude is like in Seminole Co. Suggest just going the trust route so you don't have to kiss anybody's behind to exercise your constitutional right. You can also check with Universal Weapons on OBT in Orlando. They handle NFA items and probably know who signs off. Shooting in a random patch woods around Orlando is likely to get you in trouble.

For sure, DO NOT SHOOT ANYWHERE OTHER THAN A RANGE in CFL, especially a machine gun! There's no place far enough from other people in Seminole Co. that no one will hear you, and they'll call the police and you'll have some explaining to do.

Thank you for the warning. Just to be clear, however, I didn't really think I'd be able to shoot any firearms within Seminole County; I should have been more specific in my question. What I had meant to ask was if it was in fact common (or at least legal) to shoot outdoors anywhere other than a designated range in this state, all safety precautions considered. My gut feeling is that Florida isn't particularly well suited to this, since the geography here is so flat... nevertheless, I know there are many MG owners in FL; I just wasn't sure where everyone goes to actually shoot them. I kind of just assumed it would have to be in the woods or on private ranges people build themselves?

Seminole County Gun and Archery range allows full auto firing at one area that has a high berm at about 20 and 50 yards they call the "plinking" range.

2nd on Sem county range. It is way out by the dump so I think you can shoot whatever.

I shoot and shop at East Orange Shooting Sports. They are a Class III dealer. Just last week there was a fully suppressed MAC 10. They are over off Forsyth and University in Orlando. Good group of guys there and the owner knows who will sign for Class III in Seminole county. Apparently not just anyone will.
