Thats the worst thing about a public range. These hood rats come and horse around and everyone stares at the down range scared shitless at how irresponsible they're acting. They rapid fire then giggle and TOSS the guns to each other and just continue rapid firing. Thats all the do the entire time and I just

the indoor range i go to in orlando is very strict about that, each lane has its own cameras monitoring your activity, and if there is any sort of horse play or rule infraction that may occur, several members of their staff will be in there in a heart beat to escort you out.

if youre a regular, these rules wont matter to you..they post it up for sake of having rules..

no other gun range can I not wear safety googles.. but maybe its becasue we spend alot of big bucks here..

for a beginner these are normal rules..its not any different than any other indoor ranges

remember to always hand off a weapon with the action open and safety on.

do not stand too close to the stall wall if you are firing a semi auto - i just got my face burned with an ejected cartridge that jammed between my safety glasses and my cheek after bouncing off the wall. also remember to wear closed toed shoes.

Yea the rules listed should cover it, but Jesus some of them are excessively picky. I feel like a criminal entering these ranges half of the time; its crazy.

And the rule about not collecting brass? Cmon screw them. They make a huge profit selling your brass so they can go to hell IMHO. I wouldn't go there and I don't even reload...n a z i s
