    Florida Approves Funding For New Range

    The Florida legislature approves $3M to be cofunded by the state and the NRA. The range has been under construction in Palm Beach County since 2017 and is scheduled to be completed this year.

    Cool!

    Florida was a pioneer in shall issue. This is another feather in their cap. I've enjoyed what little time I've spent in that great state.

    I wish St. Lucie county would build a gun range. Having to drive 45 minutes to the next county is prohibitive to regular shooting.

    This range has long been in the making, but now with the new funding we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hey and it is only about 10 miles from my house.

    Basements in FL tend to be a little... swampy. Great idea anywhere more than 20 ft above sea level though.

    So I looked up the map location of the new shooting complex... what a great spot to put it!

    One of the biggest hurdles the pro-gun crowd will have in future years is shooting range access for city people. If ranges are too hard to get to for urban dwellers, that will reduce the number of citizens who shoot, and reduce support for the 2A. Good on FL for building this.

    We built a pool at our old house in FL. After we dug a hole, it was full of water before we could put the forms in and pour concrete. Yeah, good times!

    During the winter months I shot my Benjamin pump air rifle in the basement while stationed in Ct.

    So what's wrong with an indoor shooting range and pool? Both mined, of course.
