Beware of using oak ridge as an FFL. I was told it would be $40, then when I go to pick up my gun, I;m told it's $15 more. Next time I will be using Trade Winds Gun & Pawn. They are cheaper, and no hidden fee's. ALSO, I went to pattern some self defense LEAD buckshot for my new shotgun, and was told I HAD to buy their range ammo??? Their excuse was people shoot steel shot, and it tears up the range, which I understand. BUT, I only had 2 boxes of LEAD 2 3/4" buckshot standard pressure. I even let the manager inspect it, and still the answer is too bad, buy our ammo if you want to shoot your shotgun??? I can understand if I had some shady looking rounds, but all I had was LEAD 00 Buckshot. Unfortunately, this was the straw that broke the camel's back, and they have lost a VERY good customer. It would be different if they posted something on their website about this, but not a word anywhere, or on the door for that matter. This is very bad business, but when you are the only game in Gulf Breeze, I guess you can do what you want!!!
As a woman, I was a little intimidated, but upon arrival, they were very respectful and helpful. I had never been to a shooting range before and they asked if I wanted to go ahead and take the Safety Class, that it would be more economical then the cost of a lane and gun rental. I was surprised they could do that right on the spot, but they said they could and me and another lady went right in a class. The instructor was excellent! Took all the time I needed. Answered questions and never made me feel rushed. Then we went in the range and we took turns shooting. By the time I was finished, I couldn't believe how comfortable I felt. I highly recommend this location and look forward to going back right away and trying different guns until I make a decision on what I want to purchase.
