I don't really have a public range story as I shoot in my backyard but I do have a stupid in-law story.
On the 4th of July a couple of years ago I was at my in-laws house for a 4th bbq. My FIL got a couple boxes of clays and a launcher and we decided to shoot skeet. After a couple of rounds my wife spook up and said she wanted to give it a shot. My father-in-law had his really old 870 (1st model 870 ever produced) and my brother-in-law had his Charles Daly auto 12 gauge. He tried to give my wife an automatic with a full mag tube of nitro tukey loads. What a moron! We told him how stupid he was for even suggesting it and let her shoot the 870 with a low brass shell in it. Good thing because after she pulled the trigger she dropped the gun.
