What kinds of people do you see at the range?
>The tacticool kiddy
>The old cowboy with a revolver
This video gave me a hearty kek too
>The asian girl dressed as a french maid shooting an AR15 while her friend records her with her phone
I swear this happened once, it was fucking bizarre. I can only assume it was for some sort of youtube channel.
well good tons of places to shoot and everyone is pretty damn gun friendly.... There is a new indoor range, not sure how I feel about it $20 an hour and right next door to my usual shooting spot. that is 20 for the day
> The Fudd and Fuddlet
> The old man with revolvers he got from his old man, and has a story for each
> The Mosin fag who needs to get rid of a spam can
> The black powder ranger
> *Click* *Click* ... *Click* *Click* ... *Click* *Click* *BOOM*
> The guy shooting 45-70 who can't believe I'm shootin' 30 cal out of an AR
> They guy who keeps leaning over to see what the hell I'm shooting.
> The kids who set the target out at 25 yards, and can't even hit it at 5, but they manage to hit my target just fine
> The girl who shoots better than her boyfriend
> The chain smoking woman who's pissed at everything
> The AK fag who's having a great day, possibly a little too great
> The guy who walks up as we're setting up and starts blasting while we have our ears off
> The guy who sees my brass catcher, and brings me all the range trash he finds
> The kid who sees my patches and forgets to hide his power level
> the fat fuck who Chris Costa's his file and loses it between his rolls
> The Nigger who's tacticool revolver can't into primers
>the vietnam vet husband who shoots without earpro because he's not a pussy
>but neglects his wife who is plugging her ears with her fingers because it's so goddamn loud
I just went to the range for the first time, haven't fired a gun in 5 years. I was super nervous about fucking up if someone called cease fire, but soon just focused on my shooting and was having the time of my life. By the end of it, I was double-tapping my usp 45 and had the biggest, most genuine grin on my face.
What would you do if you saw someone like me? Would I be considered obnoxious?
It wasn't hitting the floor but I was having some real issues in adjusting for recoil before I even hit the target, definitely missed the whole target for 20% of my shots. Never hit someone else's target or something like that.
I go to a really nice indoor range with computerized targets, great air filtration, a friendly staff, lots of lanes and prices that are actually a bit high.
Went there a few days ago and there's a new rule, you have to carry your gun from the table to the stall in your range bag and from the stall to the table in the range bag. You cannot carry a gun the 8 or so feet from the lane stall to the table behind you anymore.
>Okay whatever, that's odd.
So I followed the rule and shot there for a while. Then this guy comes in and the RO is explaining the rule to him.
He asks, "Why?"
The RO points to the dent I hadn't noticed in the metal bits of my stall right next to my head and the stall next to mine.
They're clearly from a fucking bullet bouncing off it.
I just prefer to shoot on private land whenever possible but it's winter and I live in town.
I go to the gun and rod club range in my rural upper midwestern town.
It's all old dudes with a variety of experiences and styles. Pretty cool.
They gave me shit about my Glock for awhile until they tried it. A lot of those old dudes in their 60's like their revolvers.
>Fudd that pays his $16, fires 3 shots and leaves
>Fudd that can't follow the rules because he's been shooting for 30 years
>guy aged 18 to 30 with shitty facial hair, a bipod on the barrel of his AR, a $30 Tasco scope mounted too close to his face
>AR15 guy with ZOMBIE green shit on his AR
>4chan guy memeing
>that nice middle aged guy who is showing his other middle aged friend to shoot for the first time
>the guy eyeballing your brass and sneakily trying to take it
>the guy who has no idea how to setup his rifle/scope so he misses at everything and has the RO do it for him
>women on their phones looking bored
>the "prepper" bragging about his 20,000 rounds of .22LR
>the RO who climbs everyone's shit
>In college hang out with the Jap kids because they drink hard and party like a motherfucker.
>Be the only 'gun guy' in my group of friends.
>Japs always get excited when I mention going to the range and pay for everything.
>Be a member at local range and come in every few months with four to five Japs.
>People behind the counter always eyed me weird.
>Go through usual bullshit.
>They ask if the Japs speak English.
>I say, "Yes."
>They hear "No."
>They explain the rules like it's the first time.
>"Do they understand that...?!"
>Shake my head in disgust and turn to them and repeat the same thing he said in English to them.
>Turn back and they're always nodding like I just translated it into bird language...
>Get into range and everyone rolls eyes at our group.
>Take my time with individuals going over safety and stuff as well as technique.
>Everyone one thinks it's my job.
I'm convinced for a year or two they thought I was some adventure tour guide.
Did get to teach a Yakuza princess to use an AK without her speaking more then a few words of English and me only a few words of Japanese. That was fun.
kind of related but most of the time if their an Asian from anoother they're either in us specifically nevada or guam for gun tourism
>the one where she's firing the Barrett in the maid dress
Everything about this makes me happy.
The people at the range I go to are genuinely pretty friendly. It's like a clique of it's own, except it's not all holier-than-thou to people they don't recognize.
State LRR Champs are being held at a range I have never been to.
I turn up a month out for sim famil of the facilities and shooting conditions.
Pay the day rate for non members and sit in the rest area while o wait for the next target change.
I notice the try hards with big check books.
The young guy with a cheep but we'll looked after rifle.
The bench rest guys who spend fifteen minutes talking than take a shot, peer through spotting scopes than go back to talking.
Oh, there's a fud shooting 20g slugs.
The mil sup guys walk past, grands, SMLEs, Mausers.
At last the siren goes off and the safty supervisor walks down the line checking that every one is unloaded and the Kidman a quad speeds off to change targets.
I take my dpot in the lane and lay out my mat, ammo box, spotting scope, ear pro and thirty year old Parker hale with iron sights. In the five hundred meter lane.
A pair of guys in sheriffs polo shirts and tac pants take the next lane.
The older of the pair looks at my near vintage British masterpiece and askes me if I am in the right lane, not having a scope and all.
I just give a laconic yup.
The younger one has a quiet giggle.
The red flag goes up and I settle in to a prone un supported position, the canvas sling tight on my forearm and armpit.
I shoot a five round group. Check with the spotting scope, seven o'clock, thirteen inches.
I make the correction on the peep sight and take another five.
Bull, bull, nine three o'clock, bull bull.
I sit back to record the two groups and I notice the cops just laying there, looking through the sight of a black rifle and the spotting scope, at my target.
The older one looks up and says is some one shooting on your lane?
I actually probably see the .22lr handgun sniper more than either of these at the range.
Seriously, there's always some guy in there with a target as far back as it'll possibly go with a target pistol outfitted with a red dot and laser. It's not annoying at all but I do find it odd how often I see it. I go to a private range so thankfully I don't have to deal with wannabe gangsters shooting up the walls and floors with their hi points and SR40s.
i will admit to being the asshole SOT that tests guns at the range after building them to ensure function (and so i can make corrections later, especially if the customer has asked for odd ball work done). i usually run steel case and common brass case, collect and inspect, et c.
I go to an outdoor range.
I lol internally when I am the only AR at the 150-300yd range. Whenever I go, all the AR fags are shooting at around 50 yds and its only .338 lapua's and .308's at the longer range.
Ok, when it came to "Olympic One Hander", I was like, alright pretty reasonable. but the "Nazi One Hander" made me kek
People i see at the range... well i only go to the range to shoot pistols, so usually there's a wall between them and i. it's also an indoor range, so the noise, and the walls, prevent much conversation. its pretty new so there are security cameras and sheet; nobody pulls any weird shit.
in canada you need a special license to own a gun, and to get the license you need to pass a safe gun handling course. the course basically teaches you
>NOSE PICKER OFF THE BANG BUTTON, etc.
and how to load/empty a gun safety. consequently, everybody who is unsupervised at the range knows the basic moves. the range i go to allows non-licensed people to rent and shoot guns, but only under direct supervision of a range officer.
also in canada it is a crime to point a gun at another person, so there is really no tolerance for goofing around with weapons.
Listen cunt, you wouldnt believe how many fucking Asians come to the range while on vacation in America with their friends and act like total belligerent niggers with zero regard to rules and safety when renting and handling firearms. Half of them don't even speak fucking English, so when the man asks "do they speak english?" Just give the guy a straight answer, he just wants everyone to understand the rules so one zipperhead doesn't blow another's head off when they get excited and turn around in their lane with their finger in trigger guard because they hit the target.
Jesus buddy, who put sand in your sideways vagina?
If you, as an American, can't tell the difference between me speaking Japanese and English in front of you maybe you should retire from life.
>the "I just turned 18 and bought an AR"

>doesnt have a job
I wish i didnt see this first hand
>it is Washington
stop showing pictures of Washington. it's so beautiful, foresty green and moist and mountainous.
Meanwhile I'm stuck in the flat, dry midwest
Most of the people I see at the ranges I go to are normal folks just getting some trigger time. Every once in a while I see things that bother me, like rednecks at the outdoor range not wearing any ear protection or guys trying to look all manly teaching their women to shoot wrong.
>The Fudd with the Mosin who calls it a Mauser
>The Gawker who looks at every gun and even sometimes tries to finger fuck them without permission

Not that anon but probably something like this
Asian kids are big business. One of my preferred ranges gets a group of Asian kids every weekend from a somewhat nearby college, they spend a lot of money renting shit and being shown how to use it.
>We must find this video. For science. And masturbation purposes.
That was about the only one that popped to mind. I've never seen anyone actually use one, and the only people who I hear talk about it are security guards who say how bad they want one.
I'm not a revolver hater, I just don't hear about them as much.
I see rednecks, nigg noggs with hipoints,
fat rednecks with their 22 ars, rednecks with AK's, rednecks that come up to you and ask you how much you paid for your rifle and commenting that he could build 5 rifles for the price of mine and then after i unload 2 mags super quick comments on how much i like shooting that expensive ammunition. (mind you it's 5.56.)
I see older guys bringing their hot daughters to teach them how to shoot and wish my girlfriend stayed at home that day :P
When my brother and I go to the range we take his Nugget he cut 10" off the barrel
We offer people to try it out when they all look at our lane to figure out what the hell is causing that racket
like the bottom one?
The range near me has had mostly
>Those people with modernized black powder rifles
>Fudds sighting their durr rifles
>dad's teaching their kids how to shoot
Pretty normal stuff
And then the one Asian businessman with a chromed Deagle brand Deagle in .50 african eliminator
>Douchebag shooting an AR-10 indoors at 25yds.
>Shooting the ceiling.
>Fat lazy owner can't be bothered to stop playing CS:GO to kick the guy and his sistermom out.
>Beat a hasty reatreat, never return.
Shame, too. There were a lot of super bro-tier guys working there.
The fud sightin in his huntin rifle
The 25 year old with an ar and his bored gf
The father son .22lr team
The tacticool camo pants weirdo
The milsurp collector
The safety nazi
The "why do you need that?" fud that is angry/confused by bayonets large magazines or anything aggressive looking
The oreo black guy quietly shooting a polymer pistol in khaki shorts
Ah yeah, you guys are right. Don't know why it looks so familiar though. Have a puppers tank
Neat range near me that doesn't follow their own rules. Its like $20 admission for 2 hours, but they don't boot anyone out unless there's a line.
They don't care what you shoot, or what you shoot out of it.
They rent all sorts of nfa goodies and they have an m2hb if you feel like renting the $650 price tag for them to set up the range. They shoot that bitch in their indoor range, their backstop must be the void of space or depleted uranium.
are you fucking autistic, anon? have you ever, EVER seen a "fudd" doing chris coaster tactical drills, or anything more than sighting in his remchesterby 47900 deerslugger for that matter? Please for the love of god, learn the memetastic terminology before spewing it
How the fuck is CAR fudd? Lurk more you collosal faggot
>Asshole RO drunk on power who seems to think he's a DS/DI
I know that one well. Beardsly McAsshole if you give me shit one more time about rate of fire with a bolt gun... I'll... just keep going innawoods like Ive been starting to. Only reason I do is that I cant find a nice area thats an open 200 yds. Curse Florida's flat-ass scrub land.
Also the new indoor range near me is nice and friendly, but 25 yards can only be so fun. I like muh rifles too much.
> outdoor range
Me any my friend got there first and no one else was there. We had just set up targets. We had our ears off because we were still setting up, loading mags, and talking. The other guy arrived like 10 minutes after we got there. Since we still weren't ready to shoot we let him go set up his targets. Once he got back to the table he picks up his rifle and starts shooting with no warning to us. I was closer to him so I got the worst of the EEEEEEEE. My friend goes ballistic on the guy, mainly because we were technically the acting ROs and he didn't ask if the range was hot.
> Not that we're ever anal about anything, but at least give is an opportunity to put our ears on
So, they shout at each other for 5 minutes and I can't hear most of it. That guy storms off and we ended up just packing up and leaving ourselves because now I can't hear anything with earpro on.
Then, I get a letter from the club owner a few weeks later apologizing for the incident and voucher for 5 year free membership. I did renew, but had to stop going because they eventually banned FMJ ammo.
>At local gun range.
>Bring my M1 garand, FAL, and 2 AR's
>Set up next to a family of fudds
>They have a fat son whos playing on his DS.
>Another son, hes one of those kids who wears sparries and button up shirts 24/7.
>And some basic bitch who is blabbing on her phone.
>Pull out my FAL and set it down on the bench.
>Goto portapotty that was next to the range.
>Come back to see fat fuck playing with my gun.
>Yell at the little shit to not touch my shit.
>His parents get pissy.
>Tell me to watch my tone.
>After firing my FAL, I put it in the case and take a break.
>Watch as the normal son's dad hands his normal son a Bushmaster.
>Little faggot purposely muzzle swipes me 3 times.
>He asks his gf to take a photo of him for Instagram.
>Points the gun directly at my face, smirking.
>I've gotten fed up with their shit.
>I shove his ass on the ground and tell him not to ever point that fucking thing at me again.
>He gets back up and aims the shitmaster at me.
>His father realizes whats going on and pulls the barrel up.
>Kid was a second away from shooting me.
>Range master restrains the kid while i call the cops.
It was a 'I almost was shot in the chest type of day.'
State Parks/Federal land is a big no-no for inna woods unless its a designated range area.
However, there are no state laws prohibiting discharging firearms on private property as long as the rounds dont pass over a roadway/waterway. So either find a place way out in BFE where nooone will bother you or get permission from someone who owns a chunk of land out somewhere.
Shit kinda sucks, but I found a spot on google earth way out of the way. Ive never been hassled by the cops. Just be shooting responsibly and shit with a good backstop and away from any houses.
Sup /k/ i am pore.
Out of these two, which one would you buy and why?
Feel free to talk shit about caliber, my socioeconomic status, or the retail store. Thanks
Usually I go to some old slag heaps/dumping grounds to shoot. Its creepy as hell sometimes, but generally no one bothers me. I have no one else to judge me or talk shit or be retarded.
However, tomorrow I am going with a relative to an actual range so he can try out his new gun. Generally, the range breaks down like this- old fudd fucks and law enforcement/military douches. So for me, this turns into a shit show because I'm smaller, quiet, and a slavshit collector. I just want to be left alone to shoot and these other assholes make everything into a cock competition. "Hurr dat gun isn't as good as my glock and you can't tactically reload it and blah blah" fuck off. Stereotypical stuff for most ranges I think. I wish they made places for collectors only.
The super mad and impatient executive who is there to sight in his gun during lunch break and yells at people who go out to set up targets during a cease fire.
He was so much in a hurry he forgot his sled loading block (rather pricey for a single shot "magazine").
