Indeed. I'm to the point that I have been putting off going to the not so nearby public range unless I have someone watching my stuff while I go check the target.Many thefts occur at shooting ranges. Or they will follow you home . It pays to watch your back. Too many questions about my guns gets me suspicious.
You took a thread that started concerning things idiots have said on the range, then turned my response around to insult me simply because I chose not to educate the clod I mentioned. Funny, before that I don't recall even commenting to one of yours, at least as far as this thread is concerned. Yet I'm the pain in the arse!Mr Smith, I can't help but note that you have a historical habit of shooting me down, making sarcastic remarks about my posts, belittling me - as far as you are able without being downright offensive - and, in general, making me far less of a friend than I might otherwise be.
As far as I know, we have never interacted negatively in person - I've never jogged your elbow while you were drinking, nor have I inadvertently sneezed over your dinner, so what is it that you just don't like?
I don't see anybody else being so negative to a long-time poster from another country as you are, so there must be some reason for it.
I'd like to know what it is, exactly, that sets your hair on fire as far as I'm concerned.

I say what I think and respond to people as I'm responded to. If someone insults me, I give it back, simple as that. Easy advice, don't insult people and in turn they won't insult you. That's not hard to figure out is it? Or am I being a PITA again?
I know Mark Baker, use to supply him with edibles for the articles he wrote in Muzzleloader. He told me he thought he was to train Daniel Day Lewis how to run through the woods (turns out Lewis is a long distance runner having to wait for Mark to catchup). Lewis turns out to know more than what Mark was told, shooting and outdoor skills, just muzzleloaders and a few skills he needed knowledge on. Some of these actors are more on the ball than given credit for ...Not really an idiot, but still funny ...

FOUND IT ... yay!!! .... for if you LOVE that movie, as I do, here's a side-by-side analysis of:
It is a hoot to read! Mark even trained Daniel Day Lewis in shooting, markmanship and loading a MZL on the run.
- What Michael Mann, the Director, wanted the scene to be like, regardless of what James Fenimore Cooper wrote, versus
- What Mark Baker, the technical advisor (and he starred in a few scenes) advised that they do, versus
- What was finally filmed ...
