    I told him I was considering it.

    It was one of those times when if I thought I could have I'd have whipped his ass. But, he was a lot bigger than me. So, I gave him a proper cussing, and packed up my **** and left.

    What he did made me mad. It did not make me stupid.

    I trust you guys? Notify the range owner. He needs schooled or fined or banned.

    I’ve had my fair share of crazy things at gun ranges. Both public and private.
    I had a guy and his buddies just get up and walk down range while we were shooting.
    I’ve had people point loaded guns at me.
    I was at a controlled shoot one time and a guy shot down the line over everyone. I still don’t know how somebody didn’t get hit.
    Guns are dangerous.

    I pulled up at the old Ponca range one day and there was one a guy there shooting. I gathered up some of my stuff and headed toward a bench. As I walked pass this guy he said " I glad someone is here." I asked him "Why?" he said " Because these loads I'm about to try out are 10% over maximum." I moved on down to the end bench. Did I leave out he was shooting a lever action 30-30? He fired one round and it locked up the rifle. He couldn't get the lever to move. His day was done and I was glad.

    Got to remember the difference between an airsoft game and a gun range.

    I play daddy at the gun range at Lexington.
    I make sure everyone has hearing protection and make sure everyone is aware of a hot and cold range.
    I even supply hearing ear plugs to those who do not have them and paper targets with tape and markers for those without targets.

    I get everyone talking and working together.

    Like stated earlier head on a swivel does really well also.

    Never had a bad experience there.
    Could be due to making everyone talk and be aware of each other.
    They all get a big HOWDY how are you guys doing when I pull up.

    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    Saw an update to this story, it was one friend who shot another with a new pistol.
    From the New York Post:
    A Pennsylvania man opened fire on his pal in an unprovoked attack at a gun range — then was shot dead by a bystander, state police said.
    Robert A. Eppley, 26, of North East, had been taking turns with the unidentified pal and their girlfriends firing a newly-purchased pistol Tuesday on state game lands in Greene Township, the Erie Times-News reported.
    He had fired only five rounds when he turned and opened fire on the friend — a 28-year-old Erie man — for “no apparent reason,” Lt. Mark Weindorf told the newspaper.
    A 67-year-old man in the stall next to them who saw what was happening fired his weapon at Eppley in an apparent attempt to stop him, authorities said.
    Eppley — who suffered gunshot wounds to the torso — was pronounced dead at the scene.
    The bystander was questioned by troopers and later released.
    The friend was brought to the hospital, where he was treated and released Tuesday night.
