The grand opening celebration is the perfect chance for residents to familiarize themselves with this awesome facility and experience the fun of target shooting firsthand.”

 

Special grand opening opportunities for the public include free access to the rifle and handgun ranges and up to 50 rounds of sporting clays. The gates open Saturday, Nov. 18, at 9 a.m. and the grand opening ceremony begins at 10 a.m., immediately followed by a trick shooting exhibition by the Gould Brothers . Those planning to enjoy target shooting must provide their own firearms and ammunition and complete a shooting range safety orientation.

The Triple N Ranch Shooting Range is located at 595 Donovan Crews Road in St. Cloud. The range was established by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) in partnership with Osceola County using Wildlife Restoration Program  funds. Additional support and funding was provided by Osceola County, the National Rifle Association, and the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
