Range safety - from a different perspective
I'm relatively new to Defensivecarry.com but in my daily review of the posting I have pondered a question.
How safe are you at your local range? I ask this because I am a member of a local outdoor range. We have keys to the gate and can shoot whenever we want (well, daylight anyway). Most days I shoot at lunchtime (it's only 5 minutes from my office - poor, pitiful me!:embarassed:). Anyway, most days when I am there I am the only one there. Sure, I'm armed, probably with half a dozen guns but while I am shooting I have my back to the driveway and have hearing protection in. Any suggestions?
Here in Georgia a few years back at a public range (national forest) not far from here there was actually a shootout - fortunately, the bad guys all lost.
Since only members have keys...

I wouldn't worry too much about it. I suppose you could prop a mirror up on the shooting bench to keep an eye on what is behind you but let's try not get too paranoid.
