    Default Re: Ooops... got cited for first time

    At Archbald range few years ago on a Monday and had range entirely to myself. Shooting full mags, using 2 handguns. After 30 minutes an unmarked suv pulled in lot and watched me for 10-15 minutes. PGC officer got out of vehicle walked up to me asked for range permit. Showed him and he asked if i knew of 6rd max out of each mag, i told him nope and no one else here whats the big deal. Told me it's the law and because he was just transferred to this area i was getting a verbal warning, he didn't want to start working in this area known as a hard ass.Told him thanks and on his way he went.

    This is why I joined my club so many years ago. While the SGL rules are stupid, the amount of stupid people there was ungodly frightening. You name it, that safety rule was broken at some point. Anyone from SWPA that's been to the Wexford SGL knows what I'm talking about.

    Good for you! You got lucky, I suppose. The ranger that cited me said he gives no warnings.

    These days, it equates to about 450-500 rds of 9mm.

    That's why I love my club. It's indoor, 45 feet, so there are certain limits.
    Can't be over 1500 FPS

    But no capacity or shots per seconds or anything.

    There was only one lane you could draw from a holster and shoot but we just got an email saying that is suspended right now.....not sure what prompted that.
    But no RSO's. Most of the time I am the only shooter. Go in, sign in and shoot. There are camera's that record so if something happens they have proof, but that's about it

    They are really strict about the 6 rounds. They could care less if you are waving your gun around pointing it at everyone. I have nothing but contempt for the PGC.

    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
