I would have had some words with that guy the first time. Private range or not. That’s unacceptable no matter what his excuse is/was.I wish I had enough property to shoot on. There's a private range 8 miles from my house and for $80 a year its a good deal.. usually.
Usually there's no one there but this time of year through November the hunters are hitting the range in force... this is the scariest time of year to go shooting...
Last weekend the range is cold me and 2 guys are down checking targets. We turn around some fat mouth breather is sitting behind his magnum rifle in a lead sled pointed down range. He's finger fucking everything on his bench, he's looking through the scopes he's adjusting the scope hes opening ammo boxes. By the time we get back we hadn't so much called the range hot and hes shooting. We still don't know if he had loaded the gun while we had our backs turned.
Shoot a bit and call a cease fire. I open bolt drop mag and step back and there he goes again looking through his scope and adjusting it as guys walk down range.
