I went shooting at a local range recently. I have been at this range only a few times.

As I was making the walk down the 200 yd. range to change targets, I realized that I had just left about $5,000 worth of firearms, scopes, ammo., etc. Just sitting on the bench.

When I returned it was all still there!

Just wanted to say thanks.

Firearm enthusiasts are without a doubt the most honest and trustworthy people!

Sometimes a solo range trip is in order, but it sure is nice to have a partner to hold down the fort on the firing line while you attend to targets.
Peace of mind.

Thankfully, most people are honest...most people.

There is an old proverb: Trust in God and tie your camel.

There were at least 2 stories last year of people murdered for their gear at shooting ranges.

Nice! I like those VZ58's. I'm happy with my SKS for now, but may go for a VZ58 later. The saiga's are nice too, but the vz58 is less often seen around here.

I was actually first going for the VZ58 but quickly realized that spare parts and magazines are much harder to come by than for the Saiga. The Saiga is a bit more expensive but easier to fix, should I run into problems with it.

Most of the ranges I've been at, there is a range officer around the keeps an eye on things, equipment AND people.

If that were a risk I would not go to that range. The range I go to that is never a concern. It is a private club that is open to the public for 4 days a week. They run a very tight ship. No BS, if you screw up you are gone.
