Range horror stories thread (Remember in greentext)


>Go to range
>Start shooting
>Rednecks pull up
>Rednecks pile out of truck
>Rednecks get weapons out of truck
>Start shooting next to us
>No eye, or hearing protection
>Calling mags clips and bumpfiring "AK-47's" (SKS's)
>Correct them on what they are calling their firearm
>Rednecks get pissed
>Thinking they know everything about guns they school me on their "AK"
>I pull out SKS field manual and show them they are wrong
>Rednecks get pissed and leave
>Epic day at the range? I think so.

>Bring newly acquired moist nugget carbine
>get scorned by clerks because i'm not older than 60 and shooting
>Get told to put bluegun trainer model with sample lasersite (was out for promotion purposes) down because its not a toy

>cant shoot moistus nuggetus because  crappy range says "if it sticks to a magnet, i cant shoot that ammo there"

>About to shoot rommy AKM
>Range supervisor says "you can only load five rounds in them clips"

You go for a man hard enough and fast enough, he don't have time to think about how many's with him; he thinks about himself, and how he might get clear of that wrath that's about to set down on him.

I know...what really sucks is when the weather is bad and you cant make it...or knowing that instead of the range fee you can spend it on ammo and then the store is out of ammo so you have to drive across the street to acquire more ammo but its like .20 cents higher than where you where just at. Having your own range has its downfalls too!!!  8)

WTF bassackward parts of the country do you guys live? Range fees? Range occifers? Geez, I guess I really need to appreciate the blessings this area provides for my trigger finger more.

>walk down to 200 yards to pick up my trusty, well dented by .22LR, frying pan
>walking roughly half way back to the benches
>hearing someone firing
>look up and see someone firing a large caliber revolver
>waving frying pan up in the air yelling and screaming
>hearing more firing
>moving my fat ass as fast as possible back to the firing line
>unleash verbal hell on the ignoramus with the revolver in front of his girlfriend
>proceed to hear him explain that he was shooting on the pistol side of the range and not the rifle side of the range so it was okay
>tell him, in no uncertain terms, that he is wrong
>deciding that after the third time something like this has happened to me there that I will not be using that particular range anymore
