Last Sunday I was at the clubhouse and the revival was in full swing. The sporting clay folks had parked their golf carts and UTVs, the tactical shooters had finished their sets, and the cowboys had wrapped up whatever the hell cowboy action shooters do. Lunch was served and after the mandatory moaning about the last salmon season, and griping about gun control, the topic turned to safety.
One of our coaches and an IDPA shooter told about practicing with multiple targets on the shot timer only to look up and see a lady coming down the range with targets in hand! (We have a system of flashing red lights to close the range.)
When he confronted her about it her reply was, “well I was finished shooting so I don’t see what’s the problem?”
And to be honest we have been having issues such as this on a more frequent basis with millennial generation.
Another shooter told about his shock and surprise to see a young man walk over the impact berm on a hot range. HIs response, “I have a right to just look around!”
Post your stories from the range here. Be they cautionary, humorous, or bragging.
