While in the store section of the range yesterday looking at guns with my buddy, I noticed the store employees not following safe gun handling practices. Muzzle control seemed to be the biggest issue, and not just with one but with most of them. And the store was packed with people too. I kept trying to move out of the way in an intentional manner as to offer a hint, and was informing my friend when he was looking about muzzle control, etc. but the hint didn't catch on.
The guns in all of the cases are laying on their side with the muzzles pointing out towards the customers. The case beside us was the rental gun case and I noticed a 1911 sitting in there cocked and the safety off. I notified the store employee helping us and he opened the cabinet, reached in, and pulled the trigger. UHHHGGGGG!!!! Needless to say, I was not standing in front of it when he did this. Luckily, nothing happened, but knowing this is a rental gun that had live ammo in it at some point before going back into the case and had a mag in the well, I was in total shock. I want to say something, but this is the only range anywhere remotely around and is less than 10 minutes from my house. I don't want to peeve these guys off because I buy guns, ammo, gear, range time, etc.
If it were just one person, I'd say something. But I've seen it with several of them. Any thoughts?
