First, Im all for gun safety on the range and anywhere else, but lately every club i shoot at ( for the last 30 plus years) always has some new member yelling about any little thing they deem unsafe, They seem to be always looking for a " gotcha" running a wet patch with the the hammer back and frizzen down on a patch,loading ,but not priming before the next shot,throwing a guy off the course for no ear plugs and not refumding his 5 dollars,and the ever popular muzzles up!. I havnt commited all of these earth shattering infractions myself but one of the clubs I wont even attend anymore because of their behavior.Most of these guys have known each other for years , a friend of mine and myself were shooting the 25 yrd range with our smoothebores when a fellow showed up with his modern gear in three cases, he sets up on the 100 yrd which is at least 50 yrds away, we shot for the next hr or so till we decided we were done, we look down the line and see noone, we turn on the red lights to announce range closed and proceed down to retrieve our targets , and see this other fellow we thought who had left walking across the range . He comes up and says" didnt you see I was still shooting? No we didnt see you at all. Well I was prone 50 yrds away behind 20 benches. Oh well ,were sorry , no harm done, Well he goes marching off to the head office and lodges a complaint about us resulting in my friend almost losing his membership. As I say I have nothing against saftey, but this over zealous treatment of others has got me wanting to give up , bad enough all the antis out there ,but ive never seen it like this in all my life, I was hunting alone with a 12 gauge at 12 years of age and started shooting with my dad that had to hold the gun up for me at 4. Rant done guess Im just an old crmugeon now.
