I think I'll be sticking to the NRA range from now on. Comes out to the same cost and seems much more professional (I've seen FBI, LE, congressmen, but also the occasional computer geek with an AR). That being said, there are still holes in the tables, walls, etc. I have never taken a friend to shoot, but it seems that 20 seconds of conversation to cover the four rules would solve any safety departures, and save them and myself from any embarassment or awkwardness. Mr. BG in the story wasn't trying to be an A-hole, but just seemed kinda oblivious and childish.... like a 6'4 giant italian construction worker with the brain of a puppy, just not knowing any better. Living in NVa I'm used to people being stupid, and sometimes its like I have to keep my head above theirs to keep the world running smoothly, but when it involves my life I realize the true potential of the demon we call incompetence. Hope you Virginians frequent the ranges to watch my back!
