Guns: OK Corral Gun Club review

Okeechobee County has become a shooting sports oasis tucked in the middle of Florida, with first class facilities like Okeechobee Shooting Sports and the subject of today's feature, OK Corral Gun Club. It's more than enough to justify an hour-long drive from Palm Beach County through sleepy rural roads.

OK Corral Gun Club is open seven days a week from 8am to 5pm. No membership is required; you can walk right in, plunk your money down, and start shooting within the hour. The range hosts sporting clays, wobble trap/five stand, rifle and pistol ranges, and a building for special events like weddings and family reunions (there's an on site kitchen that serves food).

There are two sporting clays courses, sportsman and champion. This is one of the swankiest courses I've visited in Florida - the stations all have nice covered stands, and they're accessible by golf carts that you can rent. The sportsman course was easy enough for me to use my 18" barreled FN SLP.

Of course, the "OK Corral" name implies Old West flavor, and the range does not disappoint. There's a large cowboy action range featuring faux Western storefronts and steel targets, and several groups shoot SASS matches there every month. One caveat - you can only use lead bullets; no jacketed ammo is allowed.

Overall, I had a blast at OK Corral Gun Club, and would recommend it to anyone looking for good sporting clays or cowboy action in the middle of Florida.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't have any interest in that (and frankly, I have neither the equipment nor the shooting skill to test ammo properly).
