Stupid Human Tricks - At the Range Of Course
A fella had a fancy PPK at the range yesterday. He was teaching his grandson to shoot. Unfortunately, the gentleman did not understand the first thing about basic firearms safety. Numerous violations of the basic rules.
He was loading and locking on the back bench, then swinging the muzzle 180 degrees across every shooter's back down the firing line. He shot several times standing a couple of feet back from the firing line. He swept the muzzle parallel to the adjacent lanes several times when talking to his grandson. The muzzle made more than a couple of trips up to the ceiling. And the really brillant one? This guy turns 180 degrees from the firing line, loads a fresh magazine, releases the slide, then manually pulls it back to check the chamber. Can you guess where the muzzle was pointed? Right into the seating lounge.
I took off for the range master as fast as my feet could beat it. The range master came flying in at a run and dealt with the situation.
Stupid human ticks. Why can't these guys ever sweep themselves with the muzzle and thin out the gene pool a bit?
