Hi everyone. I am new to the gun world. I have shot on and off my whole life but just picked up my first gun. I got a Glock 19. I went broke buying it and haven't even been able to take it to the range yet but I am hoping to by the end of the week. Any one know of a good SAFE cheap range in the Miami area? Or is all that too much to ask for down here? I am planning on taking my wife, who has never shot a gun before, with me. She went to the range a couple times with me when I rented a gun, she didn't shoot. She was just unhappy with little kids pointing guns all over the place at the range we were at.

Not being from Miami, or even Florida for that matter I can't help there. We have some members from Florida so maybe one of them can help. But welcome to the forums if you have any questions about your G19 feel free to ask. That I can help with.

Welcome and congratulations on your purchase. Glad that you picked up on the fact that there were unsafe individuals at the last range you went. Sorry I can't help you with finding a good range in Miami.

yeah i had that guy point a loaded 1911 at me at the range recently. i'm going to join a private gun club to reduce the likelyhood of that happeneing again. the higher fee reduces the idiot factor considerably.

Welcome to the Glock.pro forums!

Good choice on the Glock 19... It is a very popular Glock... Probably the most popular Glock on our forums... I'm very happy with mine...

I live in Florida, but up in St. Petersburg... I'm not familiar with any ranges in Miami...

Just got back from the range. I found a place called Florida Gun Center. It had very good reviews online, it was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. http://www.floridagun.com My wife and I went through 200 rounds of Winchester white box. I shot just a few more rounds then she did. She turned out to be a good shot and ended up enjoying it a lot. Hearing "I'd like to do that again" was all I needed. The range was also empty which I think gave her more confidence for firing a gun for the first time. Very good day : )

Glad your wife had fun shooting...

I think it helps to have the range quiet the first time you take someone shooting... Friend took his wife during what turned out to be a busy range day and she got real jumpy with all the shots being fired...
