There’s no public land to shoot on if you’re east of Colorado, which is very gay

No. First guy down there puts the vest on and gives it to someone else when he leaves. Last guy puts the vest on a hook near a billboard.

Eh, could be worse I guess. Could have been the time I forgot to take my hat and a piece of .45 brass bounced off the stall walls and fell down between my glasses and my face, landing on my cheekbone. That was reaaaal fun.

My range doesnt has time limit. You pay 20 for your session umtil you decide to go home. Sounds like you're going to a shit range.

Our ROs are supposed to act as safety officers, except they usually are busy training new shooters how not to kill themselves and get on paper these days to do anything. They leave the competition guys alone anyway.

I'd laugh at them, but I got roped into helping one time, and I realized how shitty of a teacher I am, both in stripping things down into small chunks and in being patient.

RSOs get paid, anon, yes. They don't get paid a lot, which is why most RSOs at ranges that arent' actual training centers are druggy 20 somethings and creepy 40 something losers. Nobody in the fucking world would volunteer to argue with unshowered mouth breathing 50 year olds with chipped front teeth over how their garbage turkish shotguns don't require the trigger to be pulled to actuate the safety. RSOs also have to constantly repair meme guns that noodle armed children come in to rent. When I was a retard working a dead end miminum wage job, I learned to anticipate people who rented a Glock 17 coming back to the counter fifteen minutes into their lane rental to say "It jaaaaaams :C" because their teenage video game playing wrists can not into the concept of death gripping a striker pistol.

when I worked at the shittiest range on the East Coast, we had a couple that would come shoot off a cardboard breakdancing pad from the prone in little matching arctic camo BDU pants and black tee shirts. I think about that couple a lot, the man and woman would take turns playing 'spotter' at the 100 yard indoor range and they genuinely seemed to really share a passion for shooting. Makes you happy to see that kind of thing.

This isn't true, don't be lazy/ stupid. Here's a free one: US Army Corps of Engineers land is generally "do whatever the fuck you want" land. Canal levees, spoil dumps, etc
>>
>>49614086
You specifically can't shoot on ACoE land because Nixon hated guns or some shit. I went to some near my house once and they had a bunch of signs not to shoot on it, I thought it wasn't actually enforced and just a liability thing but a ranger almost gave me a ticket
>>
>>49614086
Every ACoE lake/lands in my state bans target practice explicitly. Hunting is allowed.
>>
>>49611589
At my range you MIGHT get an RSO visit if you're firing more than 4 rounds in rapid succession. So, you're allowed to fire 4 round bursts(and with pistols you can just go crazy and mag dump if you want). HOWEVER, the rules are different on weekdays. On Weekdays you can do whatever the fuck you want, bring machine guns if ya want and shoot automatic. Nobody cares.

Only reason the RSO does anything at all is cuz some dickhead let his AK47 get above the berm on the 500m range and shot some guys house. Someone else did it with a .50bmg although the house was way further away in that case and the round didn't do any serious damage and it was never proven it came from our range.
>>
>>49614163
>AK-47
In his defense the AK has a bit of a learning curve since the sights can be all over the place and the recoil (at first) can be a pain in the ass
God help you if your sights are canted

im curious how other branches and militaries do their gun quals.

the navys pistol shoot is the funnest thing ever and makes you feel like a cowboy. its a speed draw, quick reload, fast firing test where your shot placement still counts and is scored. its like you have 5 seconds to draw, fire 4 rounds, reload and fire 3 more. shotgun qual is also fun and has you running around a big range/shoot house thing, firing from different positions and battle reloading and stuff. are all branches and militaries like this?

rifle shoot was the most boring thing ever and range guy got made if you fired more than once a minute

Because they are "elites". Same as the democrats. They are special, they have their own rules, rights and privileges, and the rabble can have none and fuck off and die. Same reason why John Roberts is such a cuck cocksucker piece of shit supreme court justice.

Practicing accuracy + often they're closer than the wilderness. Some are also gun stores that let you rent and test guns before buying them.

I have my own shit going on. But out of all the customers that came and went, it's them, the old marine in suspenders with his first civilian purchased firearm (springfield 1911, he was in love with it) and the kid who put his target aaall the way out on the rifle lanes and would take a shot with his new 92fs, look through binoculars, then take another shot. When I helped him choke up on his beretta and stop teacupping it, he came back 20 minutes or so later with these halogen light bright eyes and said "IT'S NIGHT AND DAY MAN THANK YOU".
Being an RO was pretty cool sometimes.
I'd come home and blow my nose, all that lead dust would come out, and the boss literally hired me on below the state's minimum wage and got in trouble for it, the staff were a mix of awesome and insufferable, and the hours were 12 hours, nut to butt, no breaks on your feet. It's not a great job at all. But the memories I have of people who genuinely improved their shooting and came back to get better still make me smile when I look back
