    Oops. Correcting my earlier review: we’re open 9:00 until **1:00**.

    I’m a member of the Shotgun committee. 5-Stand has been moved to a new field, and we now operate 12 traps including overhead, rabbit, teal, wobble, incoming/outgoing and crossers. 3 levels of difficulty: Green will get you going and breaking birds. Blue is a fun challenge. Black will definitely put your skills to the test! We especially welcome new shooters, and will work with you to get you off to a good start. Our first priority is that everyone be safe, but a strong second emphasis is on fun. Usually have 12 and 20 ga shells. We shoot Friday-Sunday 9:00-2:00.

    A hard working crew of 2 that works to provide a valuable recreational experience for all ages and sexes. Organized and timely in their periods of operation. Any assistance would be appreciated in setup and closing, no one is getting any younger. Safety conscious and willing to assist the less experienced. Come out and compete against yourself or those that (claim to fame). Fun matches created for your experience level. Enough said for now.

    The five stand at Manatee is one of the best you’ll find! Fun targets and reasonable rates are always a find but add to that a friendly atmosphere and it doesn’t get any better! Stephanie and Ron go above and beyond to create a great shooting experience for all skill levels. Ron works hard to keep the course in great condition. It’s a hike from St Pete but well worth the drive!

    I have been attending this 5 Stand Clay Facility for the past 2 years and just now found the opportunity to provide my “Review”. I should start by also saying that I have shot at Clay Bird facilities all along the east coast (where I travel several times a year). So, I have some perspective.. and, when I tell you that this is a First Class facility housing 10 machines of superb interest and challenge, I mean it is exciting to shoot and it is a very well thought out 5 Stand venue. Additionally, the operators, Stephanie and Ron really make the experience memorable. They treat you with kindness and respect, as well as making your time there a rewarding, safe and enjoyable event. I highly recommend you try the Manatee Gun Club 5 Stand challenge for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

    I went there with my new shotgun and even though I haven’t fired a gun in over 10 years these folks made me feel very comfortable with it in a short time.

    They were willing to take the time to instruct me on the safety features and use of the gun. Discussed cleaning and maintenance of the weapon.

    This range is run by a bunch of former Marines that know their stuff and they don’t take any shortcuts on the safety of everyone there.

    Thanks for a great day, I will be back.

    The 5-Stand is not open during all range days and hours. Ron & Stephanie Unger, Sr. run and maintain the 5-Stand.

    Just visited the club for the first time, everyone I met was helpful and friendly and made me fell right at home, would strongly recommend a visit.

    This is the greatest range I have ever frequented. The range is first rate but what really matters is the people, rangemasters, managers, and all associates are first rate guys that I am proud to call friends. I have learned more from these folks than I can describe. They are true patriots and are a hero to many.

    Will definitely be back. Well run, safe range. Perfect for my Mauser 98 plinking. Very friendly people.

    I’m very impressed with this place!
    The 5 stand range is a lot of fun (my favorite).
    Lots of room, well run firing lines on the pistol and rifle range and most important, very friendly people.
    Everyone has been very pleasant and helpful, I think I’ve found a home!
    They also have cowboy shooting,a bench rest range, archery, a 3D archery range and probably some stuff I have not found yet.
