FlaGunBlog has to have something about guns, right? Here ya go…. .

Went to a nice range in Jacksonville Florida recently some time ago…. .  Actually, Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club.

Their Website:  www.grpc-jax.com

Did not want to hat-tip them specifically, but they have a nice set up.  Go check out your own local ranges, or them.

We were shooting a friend’s Socom M1.  Here we are set up and ready to go:

Check them out.  Or not.
