    Markham Park is pretty good, bring your own ammo, no rapid fire:sad:

    Delray Shooting Center is OK shoot as fast as you want but you gotta buy their ammo.

    Anywhere in PBC you will have to buy their ammo, all the owners got together and made the rule.

    I am very interested in what everyone else's input is.

    :thumbsup:

    Markham Park is the best for sure. Trail Glades is a distant second with any indoor range coming way last!

    forget Delray/palm beach shooting ranges, run by jerks...

    I like the guys at Revere in Pompano , very friendly ...markham is good avoid the weekends unless you get there early..same with Bass Pro shops which has the best air filtration system around..

    Unfortunately, this is accurate. Tactical Edge closed down and they were the only one left in P.B.C. that allowed your own ammo.

    In Broward, Arizona Range is OK, but they have only 4 lanes and you may have to wait for a lane. Revere is old and rundown, but they don't care what you do as long as you don't damage the target carriers.

    American Indoor. They are very accomidating and take care of the place. No ammo restrictions and give good service.

    I usually go to Big Als. They don't hassle you when you practice double taps or anything else "aggressive".

    I was at Revere in Pompano last thursday.
    Really great experience.
    No problems with rapid fire or anything else I wanted to try
    :upeyes:
    Very friendly and helpful staff-gave me some tips on my not too tight groups :supergrin:
    I will definitely come back.

    Markham park is good just because it is outdoor range .Other than that it is useless for defense pistol training.Sheriff's range there is perfect for that and I'm going to be there tuesday night with tropical shooting club.
    Peace out

    I agree on the outdoor aspect of Markham being a nice feature. You have to go early to avoid a wait. The RO's are characters and will engage you in weapon discussions sometimes. There is no rapid firing there so I dont shoot handguns there.

    The action shooting clubs are having a hard time from the esteemed Sheriff and his staff. This guy needs to focus on cleaning up is business affairs and leave the Parks & Recreation Department alone. It is a public park not the Sheriff's park.

    About a month ago i went to Markham park and it was only 3 or 4 guys shooting (was early). :50cal:
    I wanted to put 2 targets at different distances just to be able to see where i hit more clearly .
    Some range guy said NO :director:
    .And there were other people that had 2 or more targets.
    -but they have few guns -he said.
    So if I would bring some 22' pistol and wouldn`t even touch it-everything would be fine with them.What a f.....g stupidity.
    I guess they a county employees and they just get bored .

    No more Markham for me. :shame:

    Thats what I meant by characters. I was trying to be kind. Markham is a bullseye target range during the day and you have to endure RO's and the other shooters sometimes.

    Thats exactly why I use American Indoor for handguns. If there are lanes available, you can shoot two targets or you can ring a single lane with two targets and practice your Bill Drills etc.

    i will remain annoymomous. im a member at revere. im surprised one of them can actually group their shots.;) who was it jorge? guy? mark? mike? if it was jorge...i had to teach him to shoot!:tongueout: kiddin, but i did out shoot him the other day. guy has 30 years experience, he is the best and most knowlegdeable. next is jorge the kid knows some stuff, mark is new to guns, and mike is an ******* who doesnt know ****. overall i love revere (obviously i have a membership) i like to go to markham though because i dont want to go to markham to shoot my ar's at 100 yrs and then pay again to go to revere to shoot my glock. and a +1 to staying out of PBC, how ironic, i live there.
