I remember growing up in west palm and life was good. it was sunny, and there wasn't that much violence. I never had a fear of going places at night but I keep hearing about all these incidences down there now. then I come across this ...

I have a cousin who lives in West Palm Beach. He has more gun stories than I do, even though I work in North Philly.:rofl:

It is true they can not hit a target from five feet. That safety margin only applies if they are aiming at you. All others are in jeopardy of being hit.

it's pretty sad. they keep building nice new places to go , but then inevitably become ghetto. I still remember when the palm beach mall was nice. then we had to start going to gardens, then to wellington. clematis was nice, then city place, then the new place by the Gardens mall. do you guys remember when the Regal cinemas first opened on 441 in Royal palm beach? it used to be a nice family place to go see a movie, now I hear it's pretty much gangtas and thugs. I think Im gonna carry (legally) when I go back home now.

Give them time and they will kill each other. Carry legally and you will always come out on top if you have a bad run in with any of these thugs.

It depends on which part of Delray. There are country club communities, and slums.

My family has been in West Palm Beach a long time,my Grandfather came here in 1920.

Do any of you guys remember the Everglades Rifle & Pistol club?
Around 1976 they had 4 nice outdoor ranges just off Pinehurst road about 1 mile west of Jog road.

2,50 yard ranges,
1,100 yard range
1, 200 yard range with benchrest tables.

Membership was like $35.00 a year.

I was just a teenager but I remember that place.

The good old days.:crying:

HA! I remember when the Twin Cities Mall was around and nice. Been here all 36 years of my life except a short stint in GA and it has gone from being an awesome place to grow up to being a little Miami or little LA.
Not sure about the Regal Cinemas being gangsta. I live in RPB and the kids may dress ghetto or gangsta but they are mostly ******* with a sprinkle of the REAL bad elements. Still better CCW though any where around South Florida.

A little ways South in Tamarac it's nicer. Though we have dealers in our condo and more shootings are on the news then even just a year ago it seems.

Did anyone at least one person had a kevlar vest in that video? :O


You live in Tamarac? I'm actually in Coral Springs myself. Southern Tamarac is a little nicer only because of all the old people. You do have some pockets of undesirables.

I've lived in Florida since I was 4 years old and I am 24 now. Over those 20 years I have seen a lot of things change. I remember living in West Boca and leaving our windows open and doors unlocked. By the time we moved out of West Boca to Coral Springs, we were setting the alarm and upgrading all the locks.

The really scary thing is that Town Center Mall. That mall is used to be a virtual crimeless area. Now people are getting kidnapped or killed there almost monthly.

BTW, the ATF and PBSO is going to get an anonymous tip.
