Uncle posted this video earlier yesterday, and I’m still sort of in shock about the whole thing. I mean, talk about a multitude of sins.
- Beer and guns
- Shooting glass targets on the range
- Destroying range property
- muzzle violations everywhere
- Some more muzzle violations
- Pointing guns at people
- shooting at people!
Now, I don’t want the idiots in said video to get hurt, I really don’t. That’s actually why I’m posting this. Well that and because I believe that as a shooting community it’s incumbent upon us to police the bad behavior in our to insure that people do not think that people like that are the norm or even representative of the shooting sports.
As a personal aside, I really hate it when people shoot glass bottles on a range. Ask anyone who has ever volunteered or worked at an outdoor range about it. I come to Atlanta Conservation Club almost every weekend either to shoot a match, run a match, or practice for a match; on match days I find myself checking each bay for broken glass or other destroyed targets.
Seriously guys – don’t be that guy. Don’t encourage this kind of behavior, and most importantly if you’re in any kind of authority position at a range and see this going on, put a stop to it immediately if not sooner.
