An Interesting Day At The Range...
While at the local range today, there were two grey haired gentlemen, probably retired and probably former bosses as they refused to obey the range rules. I only suppose that because they seemed to be the type that barks out rules rather than follow them. They acted as though the rules did not apply to them. During a cease fire, they just stood by their table and continued to fool around with ammo, and whatnot. They refused to get behind the yellow line as the range officer requested. After a few yells from the range officer, they complied. During the next cease fire; same thing. They refused to get behind the yellow line. The range officer told them that if they refused to comply the next time, they will be asked to leave. Well, guess what? At the 3rd cease fire, they didn't move and continued to fool around with their guns. Then, all hell broke loose as the range officer just lost it and demanded that they gather up their stuff and leave. They stood there in total disbelief until the range officer said the next step was to call the sheriff's office. So, they gathered up their stuff and left. Man that was fun to watch. I wonder how some guys can live to retirement and be as ignorant as a pile of rocks. But, we now have a range officer who has some guts and I feel safer there now. BTW, the range officer is a woman. When she started there a few weeks ago, some guys had no respect for her at all. They do now.
