BOCA WHISPER WALK COMMUNITY GUN CLUB VERY ACTIVE
In order to get a Florida state gun permit, according to the Treasurer of the Whisper Walk Gun club in West Boca Raton, you need 6 hours of intense coaching and a final period of shooting the gun at a range. The club is 14 years old and has 50 members including retired professionals, a few ex-law enfocement officers, neighbors and people from other communities. They meet monthly in the community clubhouse.
During class you
· see a 10-minute NRA video about the safe and responsible use of firearms

Three fundamental gun safety rules are mentioned:
