    For all you Trap Shooters in N.E. Florida that have been suffering due to a lack of local ATA registered shoots, Flagler Gun Club and it's Trap Program Managers, David Franklin & Dusty Rhoades, have come to our rescue!

    Look at the link above and you will see they have added monthly ATA/FTA registered shoots. If you live in north East Florida lets get out there and support David and the Flagler Gun Club for their efforts on our behalf!

    Thank you David & Dusty, we have needed this for a while now!

    Ya'll are no doubt aware of all of this, but if not :)

    Peninsular & Occidental Steamship Co, Jacksonville, FL (1900-1967) was formed by combining the ships of the Plant Line (founded 1885) and those belonging to Henry Flagler. Both Henry Plant and Henry Flagler were railroad magnates who had major roles in the development of Florida as a tourist haven; Plant on the west coast of the state and Flagler on the east. Plant's railroad ended at Tampa and Flagler's at Miami (later extended to Key West) and both had the idea of extending their service with cruises to Havana. The P&O thrived until after World War II, when competition from airplanes began to erode both the passenger and cargo base. By 1949, the line was down to one small ship. Ten years later, the Cuban Revolution and the ensuing US embargo put an end to the Cuban tourist trade. P&O then tried to compete in the Caribbean cruise market between Miami and the Bahamas.
