    Wow--the State of Florida has told counties, cities & local governments to get their gun laws of the books. Go to Stpetetimes & if someone could post the article---great news.

    Oh, I thought you were talking about their state-mandated $9.00 minimum for a round of trap :)

    Likely the above website will be too long for the TS.com system. So, copy/paste this into your browser for the article to come up.

    GW22,

    $9.00 a round is only during the off season here. It's $14.00 when the snow birds arrive. ;-))

    It's actually only $3.50 per round but we do have a mandatory $5.50 Yankee surcharge (applies to any one with a permanent residence north of Jacksonville)

    Actually there is no charge for shooting at the targets. You only pay for the ones you break.

    FL also wants to give drug tests to the welfair people. If the workers of this state hae to take drug tests then so do the welfair people. Thats the Gov of FL who is pushing the bill. GOOD FOR HIM!

    Thats interesting flalagarto!

    I seen on the news the creeps who are apposing what Florida is doing, they mentioned the 2% testing dirty, but said nothing about the ones that didn't file.

    They did however spend a lot of time telling the broadcaster that 2% didn't save $$$$$$ in relation to the cost of the program!

    NOW if 17,000 didn't file, that in itself save the state a truck load of cash!!!

    Go Florida!!!

    I imagine the roadways of Florida heading north are going to see many vehicles and trailers filled with household items.
