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
·        go through the NRA training manual, “The Basics of Pistol Shooting
o      pistol parts
o      operation
o      ammunition
o      using a pistol safey
o      operating a pistol
o      shooting basics

Three fundamental gun safety rules are mentioned:
·        always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction
·        keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
·        always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use

The group learns how to shoot and care for their weapon.  They go to a Pembroke Pines shooting range a few times a month. 

For more information call 561-483-5636.  Cost of course is $40.
