    Ron there are some gun shop in the Tampa area, also there is a indoor range for rainy days. I am sorry I can remember the names but if you pickup a phone book you can find all of them. A lot of pawn shops even have guns.

    I am going to be down in St Petes Beach area also in Feb not far from John's Pass.

    Hi, Thanks to you all for giving me the information. I am planning on shooting some trap at the Silver Dollar while I am down there. Never been to Florida so I am looking forward to it. You have all been really helpful, thanks very much.

    Hi Mike,

    Sorry. That one escaped me and yet I usually stay fairly close to it at Indian Rocks.
    Ron, The Silver Dollar is fairly far but well worth the drive. Wonderful facility and great people. I may arrange for some lessons for my next trip.

    Alex.

    Hi Mike,

    I stay at the Holiday Inn Harbour Sides by Crabby Bills. I usually go down for 10 days to 2 weeks at a time, 3-4 times a year. My next trip is for Feb 11 2012. You going to be there at that time? I have stayed at the Sandcastle 2, but that was years ago.
    Regards,

    Alex.
