Good to see so many from the area. As I mentioned above, I'm new to guns and could benefit from some tips on how to shoot better. Anyone interested in shooting at Shoot Straight or Shooting Sports some time, PM me to set something up.
I just moved here in the beginning of March. I have not been able to go shooting since i got here. I live in Tampa too, just close to the Town N Country area. There is a new guns shop?firing range that is supposed to be opening next thursday (05/17/2012) named Florida Firearms Academy. I have also been looking for fellow M&P owners to shoot with and gain knowledge from. If anyone is close to me let me know and we can go blast a few.
Afish70, welcome to the area. I'm just north of town n country in the northdale area a couple of miles north of you. We have Shooting Sports on Dale Mabry just south of waters on the left as your heading south. The new place is something I will be checking out too. Let me know if you want to get together and run some rounds down range.
All of you near Tampa/St Pete need to check out the facilities near Clearwater Airport, called the Wyoming Antelope Club. Outdoor (covered) range from 5yds-100yds. 7 "Action Shooting" Bays out back, NRA Bullseye range. Check the website, WyomingAntelopeClub.org. They have competition shooting (friendly) about 3-5 nights per week, pistol, carbine, shotgun, IDPA, USPSA, Steel, Archery, etc...
PM me for details, and come shoot a Friday "funshoot" USPSA match with your M&P. It's a "loose" USPSA match with 3 stages (about 60-75 rounds), and newbies are free. Regular match fees are $6-12.
