    If it were just one person, I'd say something. But I've seen it with several of them. Any thoughts?
    A life is worth correcting this problem, particularly since it's ongoing and endemic. I, too, would probably determine who the owner is, and lay out the simple reality. So the staff gets cranky or bummed. So what.

    This issue just continues to bother me...I think I'm going to write a letter and mail it as a concerned patron. It is just too important to let it go.

    That's a level of stupid that I just can't tolerate. That employee is going to ND in short order - it's just a matter of when and whether it hits anyone or not. No convenience of range, guns, ammo or other goodies is worth risking my life over. I'd speak to both the employee and the owner. Their reaction would determine if I ever set foot in there again.
    That sounds like about what I would do. I think a phone call or email would be better (quicker). It literally could save a life. I'm thankful my gun range/store is very safety minded.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    As much as you don't want to ruffle feathers, sometimes it is necessary. Discuss it calmly and politely with the owner/manager and give the a chance to fix it. If that doesn't work, find another range.
