About
Florida Firearms Adventures was developed to facilitate a shooting experience like no other. The Family Gun Range Experience! It was created for the visiting families and friends on holiday who want to experience more than just the overcrowded parks. To experience an array of firearms with safe guidance and education that may never be available back home. We decided to take it a step further and offer it as a private experience that provides a nice break from the tourist traps. We believe strongly in "The Family Gun Range Experience". We're owned and operated by father and son but you'll find our family assisting us on the range. In addition to our weekly adventures we offer private events where we tailor a day of firearms fun for your group. You may even choose to have the event catered. So if you’re looking for a family adventure in the great outdoors, or for any occasion, contact us.

Brilliant place, Don was great with my wife who was initially very nervous and outperformed me!

The best experience you can have over indoor gun ranges, we fired .22 bolt action, Ak47, AR15, pump action shotgun, multiple pistols including a revolver and m9, aswell as a long distance rifle.

Second to none, very welcoming and brilliant conversations in-between shooting.

You won't regret driving here even if it is out of the way compared to the indoor ranges.

I contacted Chris through the facebook page as my grandson is only 10 years old, and the general age for kids to shoot was 12 and upwards at other ranges.

We are from the UK and therefore an opportunity for my grandson to fire live ammunition with real firearms is every boys dream.

From the minute we got there, Chris made us both feel welcome but his ability to connect with 'Kye' was fantastic. We started the day with the basics of safety, and a quick marksmanship principles chat. Eye and ear protection was provided. Kye then began firing .22 bolt action rifles, moving swiftly onto semi's and then pistols. The range is a 50m outdoor range with various targets to fire at.

Then after a lunch break, he moved onto 5.56mm which he did not enjoy as the noise created is much louder so we quickly moved him back to the .22 weapons of which there were plenty.

It was just Kye shooting as I am ex military and also in the security industry overseas so use weapons daily, this was just Kye shooting today. Given my background, I can honestly say that Chris knows his subject matter, he made a very safe but fun environment for Kye to explore, his face was beaming at the end of the day.

It was also a one to one session so we had the range to ourselves, which made the experience even more enjoyable as we had Chris's undivided attention.

We had approx 4 hours of shooting, which is plenty. Lunch was also provided for a small fee.

I can't emphasise enough how happy this made my grandson, which to me was my ultimate aim. Id like to thank Chris for a fantastic day and like I said, I cant recommend him highly enough.

Do It !!!

Thank you for the review! It was a pleasure having you both out to the range. Kye is an amazing little guy who listened very well and follow every direction with safety in mind. I hope to see you both sooner than later!

From the UK, we don't get an opportunity to shoot these types of guns, so booked in with Don while we were on holiday.

We both had a great day, and found Don to be really friendly and encouraging. I don't think there is anything he doesn't know about the guns he has.
Not rushed at all, we spent a lot of time between shooting talking about the guns, and the local areas.

We would strongly recommend booking here if you'd like to try shooting.
Thanks again Don

I spent a good day with these guys but found it frustrating,not enough shooting and not a lot of "BANG" for your buck.The problem was the cost/lack of ammunition and I feel that should have been explained prior to my visit.If I had known that i would not have attended,we only fired 10 shots per weapon and only 5 on the shotgun ?
$125 divided between 5 weapons and only 10 shots= expensive
The "meat" of the day seemed to be mainly briefing/talking about safety and that was done in a barking military manner,not really my cup of tea and i spent 8years in the army.
The facilities are basic to say the least and the only "comfort" station was a shared portaloo.
Also the drive from Orlando is quite long and fiddly,we struggled to find the range and only "stumbled" upon it after about 1.5 hours.

Jim and Craig really showed our group a great way to have safe fun with all kinds of different firearms. From the semi automatic rifles to the shotgun and glock! Always making sure everyone was safe they taught not only how to shoot the guns but the history and theory behind them. For someone who has little or no experience with firearms this is a fantastic experience to learn to shoot every general type of firearm. As a more experienced shooter i still found this to be a great time at the range with some professional tips and tricks. Would recommend this experience to all with or without experience!

I chose to visit this as I am ex forces and wanted to handle weapons again. The price is reasonable and you have a good choice of weapons to shoot. The focus is on gun and range safety which is reassuring as the other gun ranges seem to have a "here you go give me your money attitude" The range is a little off the beaten track but easily found, it lasted about 5 hours and lunch was included. Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking to have a go at weapons for the first time.

Well what can I say....
- Don the owner was fantastic what a lovely man, helpful, safety conscious and friendly.
- The range was slightly tricky to find and we were a bit disconcerted when we arrived on an unmade road in the middle of nowhere. But quickly realised it was fine and worth every minute of the near 2 hour drive from Kissimmee.
- Lunch was provided for a small fee along with unlimited water and sodas.
- The three of us shot a wide range of guns continually from 10:30-2:30 with the exception of stopping to eat.
- Don made the day exceptional fun and tailored it to meet the needs of 3 very different people. We would not hesitate to return and would be more than happy to recommend this experience.
Thanks Don, 'we'll be back'. 😀

I prebooked our visit to Florida Firearms Adventures some weeks before our holiday. My 17 year old son and I went to do the shooting accompanied by my wife who went just to watch. It's an hour or so drive south from the Orlando area and is in the middle of know where so get good directions before you go (If you travel through Fort Meade visit the gun shop on the main road through, great to talk to the owners)
The site is an old quarry I think and is surrounded by fields on all sides. You have to travel down a dusty dirt road to get there.
We were the only people there on our visit so had almost one to one supervision throughout the day. We arrived by 10:30am and left by around 2:30pm and had lunch supplied of salad rolls, crisps and all the soft drinks and water that you want (I rang the day before to order ours and was given a choice)
Don was our trainer for the day and he was really friendly and explained everything we were going to do in a very professional manner.
We felt very safe at all times as the safety aspect is paramount during the whole stay. So if you like me had never handled a firearm in your life then you can really feel safe here.
During our day we got to fire small calibre .22 rifles and pistols, 9mm pistols, AK47 and AR15 assault rifles, pump action shotgun (wow what a kickback) and a high calibre sniper rifle (we shot at Coke cans with this one 😀)
My wife also got offered a chance to have a go with the sniper rifle but she thought it was to loud.
At the end of the day we got to pose for some photos with the different weapons and Don showed us his own personal pistols and also let my son try and strip a pistol down.

Overall an excellent day to try something that you just cannot do in the UK and it was the best day of our holiday. We spend a lot of money to visit all the usual Parks in Florida just to be waiting in a line for hours and hours so if you want to try something a little different without the crowds give this a go. Remember to take a camera with you.

Very good value for money. Will go again if visiting Florida
A big that you to Don for making our day so great.
