Some of you may recollect that I work weekends as a Range Officer at a large outdoor range in the DFW area. We have four shotgun venues, rifle, pistol and 3D archery ranges as well as a large retail operation. This past weekend was insanely busy. Did my normal assignment running two hand trap ranges. For the most part it was fairly normal except for the crowds. At times we had a 2 hour waiting line. I always have the same safety talk and check for appropriate ammo before shooters begin busting clays. There were a few instances of bat **** craziness though... A family was shooting and a 12 year old picked up his older brothers O/U and shot the first barrel at a clay. Then he shot the second barrel a foot in front of his left foot. I saw it from about 50' away. After he, I and his family had a come to Jesus meeting, I laid back to my OP. 20 or so minutes later, same young future democrat shot a clay and started jumping up and down sweeping his shotgun in my direction. Well, they were the first I kicked off the range that day. Later, another family was shooting using one of our rented O/U's. The father was an overbearing, obnoxious sort of a foreign persuasion. When the second barrel quit firing, I went over a sprayed the firing pins with some Rem Oil and it shot OK for a few rounds and the had the same problem. The older son (20ish) was holding the gun with one spent round, one live. I was reaching for the shotgun to clear the shells when the old man grabbed the gun literally yelling that it was a POS and he was getting another. Took me a few steps to catch him to unload it before he went into the store (still yelling). I informed him nicely but firmly that he was being unsafe. A while later with another of our rentals, the father hit a clay with the first shot and while bragging of his keen ability to his sons and wife, swept the gun pointing it at them, the people on the next machine and me. Probably 10 seconds later or less, I was holding the gun in one hand while holding back a screaming mad idiot with the other. They were the second group kicked off. Had two instances of people trying to jump the waiting lines. One was almost a fist fight before I got them separated. That jumper went home without shooting. The second line jumper feigned he didn't speak English when I moved him to the back end of the line. Yeah right. The range fee on our hand traps is that you buy our proprietary clays. $25 and any number of shooters can shoot. 135 clays and range fee inclusive. Well, you can buy Champion or Remington clays at Walmart or Academy for quite a bit less. Caught two more democrats having put cheaper clays in our cartons so the wouldn't have to pay. Two more sent home. Lots of first time shooters. Many being taught by poorly taught family members. Spent a lot of time with both. The Range Officers on the other venues had similar craziness this weekend. Wasn't a full moon. Great job except for the dickheads. Back out there next weekend for sure.
