As with most "stereotypes" they are caricatures of people based on some truth. I seen some of them and I'm sure I have been seen as one at one time or another

I've only been to a public range once, and I was the guy that went around and asked people if they reloaded. If they didn't id ask if I could have their brass. I had a lot of fun at that range though, despite having the grandpa and grand son beside me. Lol

Vincine – your post didn’t do anything for me. My mother told me “it takes all kinds.” I am good with that and don’t pass judgment on others as long as they aren’t hurting anyone. But thanks for your contribution by posting. This board is a bit slow at times and the more me, you and others post the better.

Thanks for the satire, as I was reading I was picturing different fellows in my mind at the local range where I go, all the time smiling and saying I know that one and yea they are like that. Hell some may see me as one of them. It takes all kinds to make up the people in the shooting community, but it is a community where we all have one thing in common that is we love our guns and we love to shoot and we wont give them up..

There are four more: 'The Bench Warmer', 'The First Timer', 'The Victim', and 'The Macho Man (and Girlfriend or wimpy male friend)'. Here’s the link for those who want to read them:

Enjoy, or not, as the case may be.

+1 You beat me to it.

I don't get the hate & discontent over this. If anyone has spent much time at ranges, you have seen some of these stereotypes play out. Hell, sometimes you don't even need to see the range, a quick scan of the parking lot can give you more than a few clues. The lowered neon Yellow Civic with the oversized wheels and the "Fart Can" exhaust isn't driven by the older crowd. While the post itself could be considered less than flattering if one were to fall into one of those categories. Who hear hasn't done something annoying at some point. Perhaps it could be food for thought. Stereotypes exist for a reason, because people do, on occasion, perpetuate them.
