Well shooting long range and living in tampa are two things that don’t mix unfortunately and I’m not wasting ammo at 100yd clubs anymore.
It would be nice to find a local with enough land to shoot with me, I’ve been to every range in a 2 1/2 hour radius from me. Yes JTAC is close to me but they don’t have any memberships available until maybe after summer and Manatee county range is a bit far.
If anyone wants to oblige my request I can sweeten the deal and bring steel for targets I get scrap rights being a demolition contractor…

I live over in Lakeland and in the same boat as you. I got 130ish in the backyard right now. Will have 200 if I can ever get the fence finished.

I made the hike down to Manatee a few times recently and it’s a fairly nice place.

I agree and I got the 600 badge from them but damn it’s a hike

Check out the South Florida Precision Rifle Association page on Facebook. There are guys there that have memberships to JTAC and may be able to take guests with them. Also, check out the long range matches that GCP Rifle Co holds there.

Going to JTAC tomorrow, you’re welcome to join me as a guest. Of course since I don’t know you, I’ll ask to look at the range rules at the JTAC website if you haven’t done already.

    Also I hit teneroc once every month or so to zero and cycle my carry stuff

    Manatee is too far, but you'll go to Teneroc?
    Doesn't make sense unless you maybe live in the Brandon/Valrico area.

    Manatee was an hour drive for me when I lived in the north part of Valrico.

    It's still worth contacting Eric or Ben at JTAC to see if they have any cancellations.
    They just signed up a bunch of new members a week ago...
    Otherwise, Manatee is worth it if you just decide to make a day of it.
    Take the significant other and hit Anna Maria Island after shooting and take her for a sunset dinner. Win, win. Winn Dixie...

    @Schütze
    That's the way to do it my man!
    If you don't find that target holder, stop by and take mine. It'll give me an excuse to replace the cardboard on it.
    I might even join you for a little while.

    @Fearlessldr88
    Take Torsten up on his offer he's a great guy.
    Just a word of warning, he's a fantastic purchasing mentor.

    He got @8pointer to crack open his frog skin wallet a few times...😂

    I’d like to, a lot, but am helping out at the PRS match up here tomorrow. I’d be shooting it too, but tweaked my knee a bit ago and it’s not 100% ready for prime time yet.

    This is unacceptable. If you're not here by the end of the month demerits will start being applied to your account

    Hmmm. Taking a rando you ‘met’ on the internet out to your private property to shoot guns? This sounds like the plot line of a Dateline NBC that has yet to air…

    Good that I don’t listen to you, with @Fearlessldr88 I’ve meet another great guy today. Lots of great folks in this community! Sometimes you have to have some faith, even more so in these troubling times.

    Absolutely. Great time yesterday wish I hadn't been under a time crunch. Glad I was able to at least let a few off the chain and meet another new Hide member b/f heading out. Doubling up on BBQ Friday since I missed the feed time dangit. @Fearlessldr88 look forward to shooting again once you get through the hoops.

    Well damn! You down there too? I guess I might just have to make a drive to Tampa! Long drive tho, like 10-12hrs.

    He hast to rent a Tesla because there may be nothing left of the Porsche Tycan he had on order?!


    But then we all know electric cars are very safe, they would never start a fire….at least that’s what
    the elite lefties are telling us
