Thank you... that's it!

Also, I can't believe the guy didn't bother to set up his own targets!!!!
Yes, and KG7IL is right... he needed some instruction . Wow.

With, nine 3/4" dots on each page, that usually lasts me around three hours of shooting, as I only shoot one round at a time and try to shoot tight groups as I work up reloads for accuracy. I'm sure this guy knows nothing about what I was all about as he was only concerned with letting as many rounds go as possible in the shortest amount of time as possible. I wondered what he was shooting at so I scoped my whole board and there it was, the bottom right target was covered with holes as if one used a load of 000 buckshot on it. I started yelling at him and reamed him a new one up one side and down the other until he felt like at total a$$. He was even with an experienced shooter who told him nothing about the range rules or proper procedure. It is shocking to know that someone this stupid is allowed to have a gun. btw, it was an AK47, which does not surprise me. What a way to ruin my day.

Is not shooting cross range, dangerous, and against every range safety rule ever written? I do believe he should have been told to leave the range immediately by the range staff after U notified them about this gross safety violation.. Yes I know ranges have side berms or at least they should have, but range safety was designed to stop stray rounds flying directly down range from the shooter.

The guy was sitting at the booth right next to mine so the cross angle is very slight. His target board, if he had set one up, would have been next to mine and very close; a very slight angle and not much (if any) danger really.

Sorry to hear that ruined your day. I can't relate though, I have my own private range in my back yard and the only other range I use is our LEO range and then you will find pranksters putting holes in one of their friends target as a joke! (on the outside of the target to make them think they missed the KZ!)
