Gun range cowboy stories
My wife and I went to the range today for fun and practice. The time was much later than I prefer and the place was packed. We shared a lane. My wife was shooting and I standing behind her.
I'm in the habbit of always looking around because I frequently see safety violations and I don't want to get shot by a gun range cowboy. You know all those holes in the ceiling, floor, and lane partitions are not intentional right?
I noticed a pair of guys loading magazines at the bench behind the lanes, which usually means someone is well on their way to commiting a safety violation. Sure enough, one of the guys inserts a just loaded magazine into a Glock 21 and has the muzzle pointed DIRECTLY AT ME. Not the worst safety violation I've been on the receiving end of, but that is another story.
At this point I'm yelling (to be heard over the volume of fire) at the guy to drop the muzzle, drop the magazine, and lock the slide open. When our eyes meet, he frowns, but does what I asked. I was prepared for an argument, but got none. Nor was there a repeat - both guys had their weapons either holstered or locked open when moving between the lane and the bench for the rest of the time I was there.
Some folks just don't take the time to learn the basics of safety.
So, what is your gun range cowboy story?

Well yesterday I saw a couple of guys horsing around on the lane as I went in to the range. Made a quick comment to the RSO and they left shortly after.
