Wish the agent could elaborate on the thanks.you probably did a good thing, not only for safety of others but for......safety of others
I'd have split and left my targets...you could have returned to retrieve them later if you really wanted them.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
I almost replied to the thread until I saw the date when it was started. So here I am replying to a 5 year old post, lol.

About 12 years ago at a public range outside Charlotte my buddy and I were trying out his new Sig239 when these two guys show up with shotguns and clays. They seem pretty cool even letting us shoot some. At one point I go down range to change targets. These are big boxes maybe eight feet apart. As I reach one box BOOM, shotgun discharge, the box next to me goes flying. I spin around and these guys are laughing it up big time. "Shoulda seen you JUMP" they said. After that my buddy and I quickly made our exit.
I left out a bunch of things from the story so i could keep it short, but suffice it to say, those guys were really scary to be around. It was like watching a training film about how to spot a terrorist.
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
