Default Need a place to shoot

Hey All!

I need a little advice. I have been shooting for three years and I have always been at formal ranges: Styx River and Santa Rosa shooting clays. I want to shoot in a less formal atmosphere, preferably somewhere where I can shoot multiple steel targets and maybe some plinking with plastic bottles and cans.
I would also love to be able to practice with my shotgun that doesn't involve clay pigeons.

So is there any place where I can shoot in this style cheaply or at least reasonably? I am just sick of shooting at paper and not being able to double tap or shoot at multiple targets.

So, anyone have some ideas?


As a side note, I would prefer to shoot on my own land but the area I'm in really isn't conducive to shooting anything beyond C02 pistols and my bow. I am in the market for a different plot of land that would be a "getaway" spot for those activities but that isn't available right now.

Thanks for any help!

Going to have a hard time finding a place like that. Times have changed, no one wants the liability of someone shooting on their property. I have never shot at a range where they have a range officer etc., never realized it was so strick.

Try motoring about 4 miles out of pensacola pass to the southwest. I'm usually not bothered out there.

I would be interested as well if someone has a place that is relatively close by. Miss living out in the sticks (not really, but miss being able to walk out back and play with new or old toys)

I'm sure its probably frowned upon but I have shot in blackwater in a clay pit!

I just always clean up my brass and anything I have shot!

It is legal but frowned upon. It just has to be some sort of hunting season that allows firearm dishcharge on the part of the WMA that you are on to be legal. But like I said, you will probably be harrassed to the point that it's not worth it. And I would not want to be the one shooting in an area where there are other hunters either. Might get some pissed off etc...
