Just saw this posted on facebook group. Shooters at a pit had a group of new shooters show up, then got robbed at gunpoint. This happened at Greenwater supposedly, but if they know one location, they probably know more of them. Keep your eyes open and be prepared.

I wonder if that is legit. I wouldn't doubt it could happen, I am always wary and carry a loaded sidearm when I shoot there.

Rule #1

Just because I am shooting at a pit, doesnt mean I dont conceal carry.

I dunno.
Looking for someone to rob, 4 men with guns in the boonies wouldn't be on my top 100 list.

Unless they are doing the fake game warden scam.

This. And I always carry loaded everywhere. Even when I'm shooting. Exactly for reasons like this.

I see an ambiguous secondhand story with no details (other than race of the perps).

You'd think they would have at least memorized the make, model, color of the car (and the license plate).

And where's the police report/news story?

Sounds like #fakenews to me.

Just FYI. I'm of oriental description. I'm not here to rob you.
LOL

And always carry concealed or shoot in groups and provide overwatch.

This would likely make the news. Any news reports? Seems very vague.

But the lesson is still there. Wouldn't be the first time criminals acquired (more) guns from robbing those at shooting ranges and gun pits.

Most famously the LA Bank robbers got some of their guns this way IIRC.

Anyway, lesson is always be armed and sling a rifle if you are walking down range, and if you can leave a trusted buddy with the guns.

I'm not even going to lie. I have my own hangups still. Last year we were on an event in Bellevue. Myself and a coworker, older black man from St. Louis, KY went to Home Depot to get some 2" gas pipe. We were walking around looking for it and asked an employee where to find it. He said, "Aisle X. You'll see a tall Asian man there and he'll help you out." We looked at each other after walking away. "There's no way there's a "tall Asian" over there." Sure enough, there he was taller than me!

I get this a lot. My wife is an RN and she tells her co-workers she's married to a tall asian man. No one believes her until they meet me. Funny thing is I'm 6'1" and I'm right in the middle for height compared to my cousins. Tallest asian man in my family is 6'3". Got a lot of "Holy shit you are tall" when I was on active duty at Ft Benning.
