I've decided I like my local Sheriff's Office range. (for some reason they don't call them "departments" here...).

I've been there only twice though. It's pretty cheap. Run by the local SO. The first visit, I just observed. The second visit, Cinder and I were shooting at their reactive targets...

It was pleasant. Pretty relaxed. I felt safe. There was a lot of space for everyone to spread out. I did notice that the couple to our right decided to move to our left, and several booths down too. Leads me to believe they're pretty experienced and had a good idea where our brass was gonna be landing, and their's too... Made me make a mental note to be more courteous next time around.

There was the Range Officer in the booth, and each section had several safety officers, all of them Deputies. On my first (observation) visit, I was told they could call in more officers if they're needed, as the volume of shooters can change at any given moment.

My dad works for a Sheriff's Office. It's a pet peeve of his when anyone says "Sheriff's Department" leads me to believe that Sheriff's don't have departments.

I'm gonna stop you right there, you just said an AR-15 is a high-powered rifle. It is obvious you don't know anything about guns and I shall ignore anything you say from this point on.

to all of you....just remember all of this when you get old and your brain starts to turn to jello.
age attacks everyone if you live long enough to experience it.

problem in todays world is the jello seems to be forming much in the teens and 20's...and lasts a lot longer. you cant fix jello.

Debatable. I work with some of the most ignorant and lazy people I have ever met in my life. I'm talking wont even flush the toilet lazy.

It's usually the young, cocky, know it alls we have the problems with. The older guys straighten them out by teaching them just how little they know.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks nothing is worth war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than his own personal safety is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless he is made free and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself" John Stuart Mill
