But I, like certain basketball players, happen to be amphibious. I can shoot both handed.
I use both hands and have usually made the joke that I am "semi-amphibious." A couple of months ago I had an accident that cut my left index finger requiring 6 stitches. I write, eat and bat a baseball left handed. Other activities can involve the right hand. I shoot with both hands but primarily the right.Don't you mean amorphous, trakker ? SW
I, like a whole bunch of people, don’t interact with strangers at the range. Who knows what information they are trying to get from you to decide if you are worth robbing or not? I refer strangers to the NMLRA for advice.
This thread was started concerning what things idiots have said to us along the way, not "why didn't you help the person"! Maybe you should start a new thread entitled " what things idiots said and then I helped them out to make myself feel good"!
In case you don't know, there is a "ignore" option you can use to block seeing anything they say. If it gets to be too out of line, report him for harassment to a moderator. Iv'e had to do it a few times myself.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 neverjogged 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 enjoy interacting with strangers at the range. Like anywhere else, some of those strangers will reciprocate, and some will not. I don't make an issue of it if they don't and I respect their desire to be left alone. I certainly don't by default assume nefarious motives to them.I, like a whole bunch of people, don’t interact with strangers at the range.

True, though I think I can tell the difference between a real gun guy and an ATF snoop. A real gun guy is going to talk as much about his own guns as he asks about yours...... It pays to watch your back. Too many questions about my guns gets me suspicious.
That attitude is why our shooting sports can be in peril. You lose nothing by helping out a new shooter. You might also make a friend for life out of that person. We are all ignorant of different things. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.Why? Not my job to educate people. Nobody stepped forward to educated me when I was brand new. What I know, I taught myself, he couldve done the same
It's sad that he has that attitude, it's a bit selfish. Fortunately, there are many more that are more open to discussion of the subject. I suspect he may not have many friends.Yup, that just one of the many things that makes our hobby and sport so popular among would-be beginners. They take a look around and see all these old crocks keeping things to themselves, and walk away....
