When the county passed an ordnance of no discharging of firearms east of 20 mile bend… we had no where in Palm Beach County to target practice or sight in a new firearm. We worked for many years to just trying to get the basic’s of a legal place to go to, the County screwed us over big time with all their false hope and smoke & mirrors. There was suspose to have been a public range next to the sheriffs range at 20 mile bend… plans and everything drawn up… they built the sheriffs range and stole the fill needed for the berms at the sheriffs range from where the public range was to be built, then the price to bring fill in for the public range was to high and killed it. Then the county said you can use the sheriffs range at limited times, limited type of firearms and limited ammunition which was bullshit! Too restrictive! Believe me this has been a LONG HARD fight to just get what we got!SWAMPERParticipantDecember 1, 2022 at 9:45 amPost count: 6in reply to: IDPA or other competition shooting #262

i have a copy….. how many Palm Beach County gun range meetings have you sat in on since the 80’s? If you had a special interest or use request you should have been there!SWAMPERParticipantJuly 14, 2022 at 9:31 pmPost count: 6in reply to: IDPA or other competition shooting #257
I have been involved and worked on getting a public shooting range in Palm Beach County since the County passed the ordnance of no shooting east of 20 mile bend. There was never any conversation about holding competition shooting except for the trap and skeet being built to Olympic specifications and it was then that the Palm Beach Sports Commission talked about it not the FWC. A public shooting range was first mentioned to the Board of County Commissioners in the mid 1970’s.SWAMPERParticipantDecember 7, 2020 at 1:38 pmPost count: 6in reply to: IDPA or other competition shooting #233
From my understanding… FWC and Palm Beach County are not going to be competing with other local ranges with IDPA, USPSA, etc type shooting events but they are looking into the future of hosting competitive trap and skeet events.SWAMPERParticipantDecember 7, 2020 at 1:24 pmPost count: 6in reply to: Turned away because of pistol type #232
You should have gotten clarification with the Range Manager who oversees the RSO’s most of all are volunteers that should have all ready completed an FWC RSO course which are the rules and regulations they are to follow. All other shooting ranges and NRA training is superseded by the FWC range rules!
