Mosin. Holy crap! My cousin just bought one of those and I am going to the range with him. Thanks for the warning. I thought the mini 14 was bad.

Everyone at the range is starting to leave now, as they're deaf and now covered in dirt and debris from the mini Falluja they've just survived. Sure to be haunted by PTSD.

Yeah, I was there... That was my 'friend', whom I never went shooting with again.
Oh my! And to think I was thinking you were making that up! You sure you aren't taking a little artistic license with that story?

The Horror! The Horror!

Did they list the one about your buddy's braindead girlfriend who sweeps the ENTIRE shooting area and everyone there with YOUR new & loaded 45 pistol while yelling that it was "dang loud"?



Tarps can be helpful at informal ranges, for covering wet ground you might have to prone-out on and for recovering your brass and ultimately for covering the bodies.

Nope. I can attest to every single thing I wrote. Take it or leave it. He is the biggest a hole on the range. It's like he hates every single person who dares show up when he's there.
The guys a lunatic. Everyone calls him 'spooky (insert his name)'.

Actually, when he tossed the tannerite, I screamed at him to stop. He gave me a dirty look and said '**** you'. Before shooting the tannerite.

At that moment I decided to never go shooting with him again.

Remember the basketball game in Cable Guy? Sounds like that, "prison rules".

I don't fit in at any pistol or urban range. If I don't see skeet towers and hear shotgun blasts I turn around. The urban skeet ranges are pretty lame. They all bought their clothes at the same shop. They have more safety rules than a bomb disposal unit. They think you will be killed if struck by a skeet coming out the low house. Excuse me while I head out to the rural range. I don't mind the extra hour of driving time.
