Re: What is the scariest/funniest thing you have seen at a local rifle range?
Funniest: A poor schmuck with a brand new Weatherby in.270 with a nice Lupy scope on it shows up at the range to test fire his new gun. Going deer hunting for the first time he say's, sends a few rounds down range and can't figure out where they went. "Dang, they said this gun was sighted in and ready to go at the store!" I tried to spend a little time explaining windage and elevation turrets and how to unscrew the covers to access them, but he just got PO'ed and left.
Scariest: Young man who has more money than sense, he came around one day with his pickup full of tricked out class three weapons. He was walking towards our little plinking berm with a glock in each hand, extended magazines and all, firing bursts as he went, most of which went over the berm and richocheted all over the place, he just kept going.
I left before he could get his custom Mini 14 rolling, met the Range Master at the gate, he promptly and vociferously gave the kid the boot.
As the wise man said " You can't fix stupid"
