PLEASE BRING GUNS IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH HOW TO OPERATE. WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING TOO MANY SHOOTER/FIREARM INDUCED DELAYS. IT IS NOT FAIR TO EVERYONE ELSE TO HAVE TO STOP THE COURSE OF FIRE EVERY OTHER SHOT BECAUSE SOMEONE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO OPERATE THEIR GUN OR BECAUSE IT IS CONTINUALLY MALFUNCTIONING.PAYMENT WILL BE MADE THE DAY OF THE SHOOT IN CASH PLEASE.
1) The range fee is $20.00 plus tax. The range is no longer requiring you to buy their ammunition. You may bring outside ammunition (ammunition purchased elsewhere) to the qualification.
2) I will have three or four lanes per half hour time slot. We will start qualification paperwork thirty minutes prior to the shoot time. I will stay as long as I have people needing to qualify. Each of you will have to be there a half an hour prior to your shoot time slot to fill out paperwork. Please sign up as usual on the website. A few days prior to the shoot I will call you to schedule your time slot.
1) Firearm – The firearm you qualify with must be the same type you will carry.
2) Reloading Device – if qualifying with a revolver it is strongly recommended you use a speed loader (one speed loader). If qualifying with a semi-auto you must have a total of two magazines.
3) Eye protection and ear protection (available from range if necessary)
4) Ammunition – Each qualification attempt requires 40 rounds of ammunition. Shooters are responsible for fees associated with the use of the range.
5) Holster – the firearm must be carried and drawn from a holster on the body. For safety reasons it is requested that only strong side, outside of the waist band holsters are used. This therefore means you need to wear pants with belt loops and wear a belt. The reload mechanism must also come from on the body, it is recommended you have a magazine or speed loader pouch.
6) Departmental Issued Picture I.D. Card showing you are a retired law enforcement officer/ correctional officer/correctional probation officer.
7) Florida Driver License
Comfortable clothing (Crew neck shirts, long pants, closed toe shoes)
Baseball style cap is highly recommended.
Must have been assigned a time slot at least two days prior to the qualification.
