Range safety is the responsibility of all who are present. That said, minor infractions/oversights need not result in bitchiness. When there is a range officer present, He/she needs to be the arbiter of any safety lectures or other measures. Random douchebaggery is typically unproductive. In dressing you down, all this guy did was piss you off. That certainly advanced the cause, didn't it? Most would agree that a quiet reminder would have probably had better results.
