Guns: Jacksonville Skeet & Trap Club review

In terms of firearms facilities, the biggest problem with living in Palm Beach County is the lack of clay shooting. There are plenty of indoor pistol ranges here, and even an outdoor rifle range that's open once a month, but there's no way to play a round of skeet, trap, five-stand, or sporting clays. There's certainly nothing like Jacksonville Skeet & Trap Club, a first-rate skeet and trap facility that's only about fifteen minutes from the heart of downtown Jacksonville, Florida:


My friends and I visited the place on an idyllic day. Despite the azure skies and cotton clouds, the range wasn't crowded.


We sat down for a first-timer's instructional video (shown inside the rather nice clubhouse) and filled out some mild paperwork (like every public range, you have to sign a waiver). For non-members, $8.50 buys you one round of skeet or trap (we were allowed to shoot our own ammo). The throwers are coin-operated, which left us in a blissful, clay-busting solitude:

 
 
 
If you're ever on New Berlin Road northeast of Jacksonville, and the sky is an amazing shade of blue, load up and stop by Jacksonville Skeet & Trap Club. You'll be glad you did.
