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.
If I had driven him there I would have bailed on him and left him there. Maybe.

after reading some of these posts, i am so glad that i have my own private range at the house and that i also belong to a very exclusive private range that abhors idiots and morons!

i don't think i could endure some of these types of people for any length of time.

At this indoor handgun-caliber-only, range I go to when it rains, there's always someone who decides that there going to position themselves in a way that every ejected round from their gun hits you in the face.

It's usually similar to the punk HiPoint kid, but without a girlfriend and a know it all attitude.

IMO the most offensive stereotype works at the range.

You guys have all met him, he doesn't care if you're

getting sprayed by some other jackhole's brass,

doesn't care if the retard in the next lane is shooting

your target, but he knows every obscure bylaw, and

safety sub-ordinance ever conceived, and he always

waits till the second you're ready to pull the trigger,

to enlighten you...

love it man!

yep I dress in tshirts, drive an F250 XL Yr 88, play country, I drink coffee out of my thermos, I usually wear camo pants (the multiple pockets come in handy), I usually take any where from 2 to 5 guns with me, 200 rounds for each gun, I'll talk to people ask them about anything that looks cool or looks useful, and I always get the end of the range away from anyone else so I can smoke while waiting for the cease fire, I watch out for major safety issues, and my range bag just has ammo, tape, an extra pack of smokes w./ lighter and any possible tools I might need.

I don't know where I fall but no ones ever complained about me that I know of and I generally try to help people if possible.

I'm not sure what is funnier. The OP or the lack of a sense of humor that some other posters have (I'm sure they use to but lost it in some kind of tragic accident, so we probably shouldn't mock then).

I am sure that I fit a few of those stereotypes myself.

You can also this type of critter that also inhabits the range and is THE last word in guns and knowledge,


The Unwanted Advice Giver,

Approaches people who are minding their own business and offers unsolicited and often unwanted advice about equipment, loads or technique or all of the above. Often an older chap who wears his trousers either hitched up around his neck or down low so the crotch is around his thighs and with the dragging cuffs of his Rivers or Target denim rolled up around his Rivers hikers. Delights in tiny groups on paper and powder puff loads, and is very conservative in his choice of equipment - anything that is too loud, too big or too far from blued steel and wood will bring a look of disdain. Believes less is more and has never pointed a firearm at an animal or even a "fun" reactive target is his whole life.

I don't mind the extra hour of driving time.
We usually go out in the West desert here. First time I went to an actual range I probably fit the "victim" description, I still prefer to be out in the desert with my brothers that way we can shoot more than just pistols. And we don't have to worry about anyone else with the possible exception of my little sister, who turns around holding the shotgun, sweeps everyone while asking loudly where the safety is.

I still think I was adopted...

The Keyboard Hunter/benchrester

Hardly ever goes to the range, owns only one $120 gun that constantly needs cleaning and oiling due to the damp environment his safe is subjected to.
Goes to ranges and keeps walking back and forth in the hope that someone will talk to him because he is wearing an XXXXL internet hunting forum T-Shirt.
Posts in the Politics section of Hunting Forums knowing someone will disagree if the post leans slightly left of the politics of Genghis Khan......
When he finally goes on a hunting trip range session, he shoots 100 photos from 20 angles for every bullet spent. He dissects any killed animals to find and photograph spent bullets up close, and reviews their performance online in 1000 words or more.
