Ok, so took a friends kid I have been trying to mentor to the range yesterday. Its a private range and normally not a lot of traffic except the "old timers" which are great. After about 45 minutes of instruction and getting the kid on the 200 yard gong prone and then sitting the AR crowd shows up. Now look I own and shoot several ARs and love the platform; however, the last couple times at the range the idiots show up blazing (and hitting nothing) with ARs. The AR guy next to us is spewing hot brass as quickly as he can pull the trigger after asking him to do it, to no avail, I put up a target board to deflect the brass. Of course the kid is mesmerized by the rate of fire so after a couple minutes I suggest we watch. Two guys, decked out black guns shooting at two hundred yard gongs. They did not bother to site in. So I stood well behind them and started calling the shots much to there displeasure. The first fellow was hitting a 16 inch gong about 1 out of 4 times with a scoped AR. The other fellow was slightly better. So they were not real pleased with me calling the shots for the kid but it was after all a great lesson for him, I put him back prone and made sure to call his five for five hits. I call this video game mode! It seems a lot of grow ups (40 something) are caught in the same mode, to much modern war or whatever they are playing. I know we need to stay together as gun owners and shooters but how do you deal with these guys. When I shoot an AR I use a brass catcher and certainly watch considerately for those around me (I also hit the target a hell of a lot more).
