    That is about the best advice you have gotten Lima. Get a vest. Wear it at the range, it might save your life.

    I too have worked at a gun shop / range. I was in the Navy and working part time in the evenings at a place that is no longer in business in Goose Creek SC. Nice place it was, after the owner died his wife sold it off and the new owner turned the range into an automotive shop.

    I have had many similar experiences to the ones you have related here. They never fail to amaze you.

    I saw the utility of wearing a vest on the range when one particularly stupid person put a round through the wall that separated the range from the range rental / showroom area. I was standing at the counter by the register and the round missed me by less than 5 feet.

    I bought a kevlar vest the next week and started wearing it under my shirt at the range. I still have it and I still wear it when I am at the range with someone who is not an experienced shooter.

    Spend the $300 or so and get a vest.

    That gave me a good idea. Lima should video tape her buffoon encounters so she can share them with us!

    Break out my camera phone. I might have to do that on the range...lol. You could get some serious good laughs with that one.

    Story #2 is just flat scary! I wonder if part of it was a case of "Mr. Manly-man" not being able to admit to the "Little Girly" that he'd never fired a round in his life?

    Slightly Off Topic - Just a Fast FYI though

    Related to something limatunes said in her one post.

    The grip safety on a 1911 can easily be custom tuned and made "super~ sensitive" to the degree that ANY grip on the 1911 will negate it.

    That can be done with a few judicious swipes of a fine cut flat file.

    Really though any correct/proper grip on a 1911 should operate the grip safety without any modification.
