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!

We booked this as a family of 4, 2 adults and a 12 and 16 year old. Being from the UK we don't have any contact with guns. Don was a fabulous host, spent time to make sure we used the guns safely and were comfortable. Shot everything from handguns to a sniper rifle via machine guns and a shotgun. Just a fantastic day out and loved by all of us. This will definitely be somewhere we go back to whenever we visit Florida. Also enjoyed the drive out in all the orange groves and countryside. Chris & family

Having experienced ranges and shooting in a number of locations in both military and commercial security situations I felt I had to recommend this organization Don Lutz has an obvious love for weapons matched by his expertise in not only how to handle them but how to teach others to do so safely whilst maximizing enjoyment. He uses “plainspeak” and keeps things very much on the simple/safe level whilst making the challenge fun. Thoroughly enjoyable day even for a grizzled old veteran like me; not only is the weapons side of things well sorted but the admin is in place also. Part of this is a good snack lunch where Don gets to know his visitors and tells you quite a bit about himself Not only would I highly recommend it for others but would not hesitate to go again given the chance

Myself and two sons aged 18 and 13 wanted a firearm experience that would allow us to shoot many different guns and Florida Firearms Adventures gave us this and more. We were lucky that no one else was booked in so it was just me and the kids along with Don who is the instructor. Don is such a great guy and his knowledge of the guns we were using was excellent. He was excellent with my youngest son and taught him to shoot amazingly well. My eldest son has been to another firearm place in Orlando and he said Florida Firearms Adventures is the best he has ever been to. I recommend this place highly. Getting there was an easy drive too. It took us about 40 minutes from our villa in Haines City.

An amazing place to experience firearms! Coming from the Netherlands, my girlfriend and I never shot a gun in our lives before. Don Lutz was a very knowledgeable guy, comforting us into shooting our first bullets. Quickly the gauges went up and before we knew it, we were the new John Wicks :) haha. Unfortunately not, but in all honesty, the historical and technical explanation about the guns, the atmosphere and location (OUTSIDE!), great lunch and attention for personal safety and improvement have to make this the best Firearms Experience in Florida. We have no comparison, but try to find a range for an acceptable price level where you can shoot 4 rifles, a shotgun and 4 handguns outside on different targets (soda cans pop nicely) and really have fun doing it. That's the main goal: fun with firearms. And that goal is greatly achieved by Florida Firearms Adventures. WE WILL BE BACK Caine & Melissa *note: amount and type of firearms depend on their judgement of your shooting skills. If you behave correctly and following their instructions carefully and with attention to safety, you will have the best experience.
