At least he didn't shoot at you!Don Glock said:anyone else have their life threatened at the range due to careless people?
I was downrange checking a target during a cease fire when I heard shooting. I looked over and on lane #1 some numbskull was shooting. These idiots believed they were doing nothing wrong.
One time I was at an indoor range and looked over and watched a competitive target shooter point his target handgun at me, start loading it, and realize it was pointed down the line. He apologized profusely and it didn't happen again that day. I was nice about it.
Then there was the moron loading guns outside the shooting booth. He had a SIG on the table (slide closed, magazine inserted)...pointed straight back at his belly or door to the range (depending upon whether or not he was standing in front of the gun). I pointed it out and he didn't see anything wrong. I was not so nice in that instance.
I was the last guy on a range where a guy committed suicide. I remember he was shooting a heavy revolver and not doing too much shooting. I left and got a call the next day. I just feel sorry for the poor RO who had to close the range that night.
