    Eagle man misses gun at shooting range
    Man had been shooting a .22-caliber weapon
    Vail Daily staff report
    newsroom@vaildaily.com

    Eagle, CO Colorado,

    An Eagle man reported his handgun missing after an afternoon outing at the Gypsum Shooting Sports complex last week.

    The man reported the missing gun around 7:15 p.m. He told sheriff's deputies that he had been shooting the .22 caliber weapon at the Gypsum complex around 12:30 p.m. that day. When he finished, the man thought he had carried the gun to his car and placed it in its carrying case before leaving the site and returning to his Eagle home.

    At around 4 p.m., the man remembered that he hadn't yet brought the gun inside, so he went out to retrieve it from his vehicle. He couldn't find the weapon, so he returned to the shooting range, thinking he had perhaps left it on a bench. A search of the area failed to turn up the weapon.

    Deputies instructed the man to continue looking for the gun and notify them if it turned up. In the meantime, they listed the weapon as stolen.

    At the very least very irresponsible, must be they don't have cameras at the range.

    Once or twice leaves a firearm at my range. Usually a pistol or some sort. The range is full of honest high caliber people upon discovery, the RSO will take it and locate it's proper owner...

    why shoot anywhere less?

    We had an FBI agent leave 2 pistols at the range. The 1st we caught while he was still there and it was promptly returned. Later, we found another. He was a jerk about it and we required proof of ownership before returning it. Imagine trying to come up with proof of ownership for a 20 yr old gun.

    Another guy left a gun at the range and we figured out whose it was, put his name on it and put it in the safe. He called about 2 days later looking for it. He was supposed to get it the next day. 3 wks later, he still hadn't picked up his gun. I think we still have it, but haven't heard anything else concerning the gun. After some research with the ATF, if he doesn't come get it soon it becomes property of the range. What a tool.

    I'm sorry, I have never and can't even fathom leaving a weapon at the range or anywhere else. Then we wonder why the other side is so dang nervous about some of us having guns when we have people leaving guns and forgetting them and such as this. Give me a break.

    Accidents do happen. Cars crash into trees, babies get left in car seats, NASA looses spacecraft, YoYo Ma left his 12 million dollar cello in a taxi, and things get left at the range.

    There is always risk... we can minimize it, but it is always there.
