It's amazing the number of PM's on the local forum I received from people stating their own concerns. A couple of people posted them in public. As I look back at the incident...
- There was no emergency medical kit available
- There is no published emergency procedure book
- They do not have an attorney on speed dial
- They have made some "minor" procedural changes
- I doubt anybody running the competition is a NRA certified RO
- This is pure speculation on my part, I'd bet a lot of doughnuts their "insurance" is void because they haven't met requirements specified in the policy
- And the best part of all, I received an email from someone that attended last night, and he stated that if he was running the operation, the guy that shot himself would have been tossed out last night. Apparently he hasn't learned enough.
Another member said something to me a few weeks ago, they are having financial issues, but I don't know that as fact.
Yea, it hurts that I became their false flag to rally against. But, it's forcing me to move on.
One other thing I've learned from this incident, DO NOT TALK TO POLICE
I now have three attorney's on my phone. This guy was singing like a bird. He is at the risk of losing at a minimum his conceal permit, and potentially even getting a felony charge out of the incident. Had he not said a word, a good attorney might have been able to claim AD from his modified competition gun. Since he admitted ND, if the prosecutor decides to go after him, he's going to be in for some expensive butt hurt.
