    Unhappy rte 74 range lack of safety

    once again my trip to the rifle range has resulted in me having to correct unsafe practices. what is with people these days? i do not know if these are beginner shooters that just do not know better or experienced shooters that have developed bad habits. i for one will not tolerate gun handling on the firing line while people are down range checking or putting up targets. needless to say i will continue to speak up when this type of uncourteous behavior happens. all i can say as fellow shooters we need to police safety among ourselves. your cooperation and willingness to speak up when you see these types of basic safety concerns will no doubt make all of our shooting experiences more pleasant and safe. on a following note a more regular presence of the game commission addressing these issues would also be helpful. shoot straight, be safe, have fun, red dog

    Its a shame a few people are irresponsible.It fulls anti gunner.Palmyra had an issue last year i think where soemone used an AK or SKS(7.62x39) and hit the roof of a house over a mile away behind the range.Now palmyra sportman,working with local law enforcement, paintes the backstops yellow.Shoot outside the yellow and it is automatic expulsion with possibility of criminal charges added on. I enjoy occasionally shooting semi autos myself but come on people be safe about it.Dont give anti gun groups any more to use against gun owners .

    I would suggest some female owns a killdeer: her-plover

    Either way is cool. But I may be well off the mark, too. Let's see if he posts the original derivation.

    "camper" has been taken on a couple message boards I've used in the past.

    Can almost guarantee that 'herplover' is one that is not, unless it's the dating section of the valtrex message board...

    I hate the 'call for rep' posts, but damn the dude deserves it for us ragging on a new guys name

    Sorry didnt see the name question.I own sevral snakes and other reptiles.i use herplover as a name in all forums since i get sick of trying to pick names to have them taken and no one ever takes herp anything outside of reptile forums.Also makes it easy to remember name sign ons.

    I'm glad you straightened that out. It's logical. thebearpack wins, as he ought. (But I WAS holding out for a chick giving someone the bird)

    Thanks,
