idiots!!!!!

So yesterday my step son, a friend and I went to our favorite spot to shoot long range as there is multiple places to shoot out to 1000+ yrds and even out to 1760. the place was crowded with most shooting stations being occupied. two spots were open one good out to 400 yrds and the other out to 1000. so we chose the 1000 yrd spot incidently on the far north of the area opposite the other vacant spot to the south. we put on our orange and hiked out to the 1000 yrd plate and set up 12 water jugs then returned to the shooting location. my step son set out 12 more jugs from 30 to 150 yrds out for targets for the mini-14. we then began setting up our shots. while we were readying ourselfs a maroon colored hatch back pulls in the only other open slot and hopped out ars in hand and emptied their mags into the hillside. we went back to shootin and i proceeded to cold bore the first jug with my semi-custom 8mm mauser. my friend missed slightly with his 300wm dew to a wind change and then destroyed the next two jugs. my step son opened up on the 3 closest with the ruger. while reloading and evaluating our shooting we noticed smoke coming from infront of the newest arivals with the ars. there were at least 20 hot spots ranging from 30 yrds to 250 yrds out in front of the guys with the ars!!!! flames growing fast!!!!!!! gobbaling up junipers with 20 foot flames!!!!!! the incenerary tracer shooting offenders called and waited for the authorities and we were all evacuated. however we made just enouph time to destroy the rest of the water jugs!!!!


wish i had pictures

Re: idiots!!!!!

I wish they would make people pass a basic competency and safety test before getting a range key. We have guys who think it's fun to take there garbage from home and shoot it up and leave it strewn all over the range. I like blowing stuff up as much as the next guy but I've gone out and found computers and tv's laying in a pile. We also have the guys who think it is cool to shoot all the bolts out of the target frames or shoot the target frames with penetrators.

Hopefully they will hang a bill on them!!

Re: idiots!!!!!

People like that is why it is hard to find a place to shoot and why private land owners will not allow people to hunt!!!!!

In general I stay away from the "black gun crowd" because of just this type of situation.

Agreed.
The ratio of idiots to competents is really bad with that group of people.

Re: idiots!!!!!

here is a pic taken last year of were i was shooting. taken from were the family of skeet shooters were enjoying there time together. about 1/2 way to the people who started the fire from were we were.
the spot that burned was thick sage and sparse juniper

we were shooting from well outside of the lower right hand corner of the picture to the left edge of the "y" shaped rock slide. there are 2 rocks with a steel plate between them directly on the left edge of the pic. this is were we place the first set of water jugs.

the area in the back ground of this vid is what was set on fire. this vid is shot from the same spot as the pic above. the target in the vid below is an 18"t x 32"w rock @ 800 yrds
