Scary stuff


This was posted on the local shooting site. It was NOT filmed locally.

I think the scary stuff starts with the person to the left, filming, just a few seconds in. How does anyone allow shooting to continue? But keep watching.

Biggest reason you`ll never see me in or at any of these shoots... i feel that i`m out numbered by "stupid people".

PaPow, That is NOT a common occurrence! In 3 years I haven't seen anything like this even once. That's why I posted it... it's so unusual.

At our local matches everyone watches out for everyone else. I simply can't imagine how this got by everyone.

I hear ya Brian, and i understand why you posted it... thats crazy scary...
but all it takes is just once to get hit with one bullet in the right spot = DEAD

I use to go around to a few shooting events, i couldn`t believe the supidity i was seeing, i dont go anymore, to ANY shooting events. And this is what made me build my own shooting range at my home years ago... i can control what idiot is NOT allowed to shoot on my range. Rule #1, gun stays in holster. Rule #2, you dont unholster your gun until i tell you to. Rule #3, your finger dosent belong near the trigger until you are on the target. I have a "safe zone area" for people that aren`t shooting, they`re NOT allowed outside of that area. The safe zone area is away from ALL firearms... ALL firearms are either in their case`s, or laid on the bench`s with chamber facing up and opened... no loaded mags... ammo is also separated from the firearms. I do NOT allow ANYONE near guns until its time for them to shoot. I`ve never had an incident on my range, as EVERY firearm is pre-checked by me, before entering. People on my range respect my iron fist rules. I`ve been told by many, that i have range ethics and rules that ALL other ranges should follow. You can never be to safe... i dont ever want to be the person that has to tell someone that their loved one died having fun because of stupidity or neglect of others that i should have been watching. Its obvious in that video, there are dumb people running the event.

I can't disagree with your rules my friend. Follow them and accidents can't happen.

I don't doubt that you saw safety infractions that caused you to leave those ranges. But locally we push safety as a first goal.

As to your last statement... we've been discussing the video on the local shooting forum, and the consensus is exactly that... that the folks running it were incompetent at best. It's also assumed that it will become part of the training for RSOs. So much was done wrong there and it wasn't a local match, it was a regional match making it even worse. When a shooter is actively shooting the shooter owns the stage. The folks he "ran into" scrambled they never should have been there. It's assumed that he went back to hit the popper that he left and he can do that. It's his stage until me makes safe and holsters.

If nothing else happens during a match, USPSA demands safety. We don't quite have your rules, but unless one is on the firing line there is no handling both ammo and a firearm off of the firing line. If we didn't allow folks to load mags between shooters we'd be there all weekend. If one wants to handle a firearm off the line (to work on it) ammo is not handled, and the firearm is only handled at a safe table. Any infraction means one is DQ'ed. There are other rules as well, most demanding safe gun handling.

OK, having written all of that. I and a friend were at the local range a few years ago. I was shooting an elephant handgun (literally). My buddy was shooting a AK and other guns. This state trooper pulls up puts on his tac gear and walks in front of us active shooters on the line. He was off to the side, but what an effing manuever! I'm hollaring cease fire, and he's ignoring me. He hauls out his handgun and starts shooting. That was no exaggeration. My buddy and I couldn't believe what we were seeing as we stood there as this *hole fired a few mags and took off. I doubt that he was a member of the range at all. I should have confronted him, but I figured it would be a waste of time as clearly he was a moron. Or maybe he figured my 250 grain bullets at 2400 fps wouldn't make it through his "bullet proof" vest or tear off an arm, leg, or make it through his bonehead. I have never seen anything as stupid as that to this day, but he was safe because of my friend and I and not because of him.

WOWWWWWWW, that trooper....RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
That boy would have gotten a verbal beating from me that he would never forget.
I would have also called his supervisor and had a written complaint against him for his LEO records.

My home gun range is very private... therefore, only one person shoots at any given time. I also stand next to them to be right there if my assistance is needed. My biggest theme is teaching safety... more gun safety than shooting actually. A brand new shooter only gets one round in the mag. Trained shooters can only have 5 in the mag... and they are only allowed one mag, the rest of them remain in the gun case, empty. I dont hold events, i just train new shooters. I have a couple friends that shoot with me, other than that, my range is closed to the general public. I also have it posted, as well as live camera`s that come directly to my cell phone just incase somebody tries to shoot when i`m not on my range. I`m a hardcore prick about my gun range... i have to be, because i dont want any lawsuits.

You could be me. :-)

I'm a PITA on my range also. Very few folks get to use it and when they do I'm right there. I had my range long before training people, but that's it's alternate use today. One infraction and that shooter is done for the day. I've even done that with the wife. I simply won't tolerate unsafe acts for the same reason, plus I mend slowly and over the course of 65 years I've grown accustomed to, if not genuinely like my parts as I was born with them.

PaPow-maybe your user name should be changed to PaPowNotWow.

Had a bunch of stuff typed that I deleted due to better judgement and I don't want to use my adult words tonight. Your range=your rules.
