Wow that many people shooting with ammo prices the way they are. Wish I could shoot my new rifles I got last month but there is no 5.56 on the island at a decent price.

Wow. I was there last Sat, at about noon, with about 60-70% of the benches taken.  That could've been the weather, though. It was super windy.

It's CHEAP when you only fire 1-2 rounds every hour.  ???

FYI: There are A LOT of bench hogs who treat the range as a social club and don't give a crap that others are waiting.

No joke! Those guys really take the mantra "One Shot, One Kill" to a whole new level. Well at least the first part. ;D

you mean when you go to the range, see three benches open at the end, and you're glad you came early, and then some guy walks out of the shadows and says "oh, my friends are coming.  sorry".

and then 2/3 of them never show up, and the original guy shoots 15 rounds and spend 50 minutes talking with his friends.

Why not say that you'll move when your friend gets here? Or tell them no place holding

I was at the range today.... I was expecting it to be crazy so I got there about 5:15am... was SUPRISED to see most benches taken, I guess I planned it right... I got a decent bench 92 but atleast I was blasting away did take 2 breaks for water and a musubi.... but I do DisLIKE when "friends" take up 4 benches and usually only couple guys shooting at a time, I mean I respect the old timers, and their info, but they could have just used 2 benches that would have been used properly and given 2 to the people waiting... but hey early bird always gets the worm too! was a fun day wind was dead-to minimal...  :geekdanc:

Almost need parking meters to time people, like at the tennis courts.  Or something.  Another range would so rock too. 
sigh.

Went to the silhouette range with a friend to test out his Sig 2022 that he recently got back from serving at Sig.  It looked like everything was all good until the trigger pin started walking.  Looks like the gun is going back to Sig.

Got to the range around 2 pm and got on the waiting list at the silhouette range.  Got a shooting station at around 2:30 pm.  By 3:00 pm, it was only about half full.

I was at the life training too.... Great class and lots of fun.... I recommend this class to everyone... Instructors were great and man did they bring a lot of handguns and ammo....

Great bunch of people both students and instructors!!!! Makes you realize that handguns are a lot different from rifles....

Those cowboy guns are actually fun to shoot.... Maybe better than the semi autos.....

LIFE class today was fun.  Nice to see that the wife is starting to get the bug.   She was a bit intimidated at first, but the instructors did an excellent job of encouraging her to just relax and shoot.  After failing in my attempts to teach her golf and how to lift weights properly, I learned my lesson and left the teaching to the professionals.  I tested her when we got home and she remembered everything.  Thanks again to the LIFE Instructors today(Bill, Lyle, and the rest).  I've been shooting for years, and I still managed to learn a lot.  Thank you for everything.

I thought there's a rule against holding benches anyway.....

Same thing I tell them at the movies, "Are they here? If not, they can use your bench when they show up. I can get the range master if you like."
I worked at a movie theater one summer break while I was in high school. I know for a fact that you cannot hold seats for other people because it's OPEN seating. If they put their shit there and walk away you can toss it, sit there, and they can't say "boo" to you. Well they can say "boo"......

Not to mention every other word out of their mouths is F this or F that!  Have some courtesy to others around you that may have kids with them!   :wtf:
