My #1 rule for shooting at these pits: Always, always, always keep your head on a swivel, and a loaded gun on your hip.

My #2 rule: Leave at the first sign of bad things to come.


Yep, learned #1 long ago....always have a loaded weapon on you, with you.

Never empty all mags in weapons and be standing there with nothing, or worse yet, be weapon less out checking/changing targets.

Pablo's swim buddy rule is important, but this rule pre-empts all others...even at an indoor range.

I don't know. You lost me at 'spraying bullets'.

Yes. There are plenty of fumbducks out there. This is the main reason I like going to the range instead of the forest. Somewhat less fumbducks there, on an 'organized' set up.. Or shooting on my own land. Or where no one else is around.

What’s wrong with spraying bullets now and again? It’s definitely a great stress reliever [emoji1787]

I have a huge problem with some retard spraying bullets from left to right when they are standing about twenty feet between me & my 7 year old grandson and another group on his right side.
A little to far right or a little to far to the left and one or two of us end up dead.

If that EVER HAPPENS AGAIN I WILL YAKE APPROPEAITE ACTIONS.

The more I think about this the more I get pissed.
If some mother fucker wants to do crack and spray fucking bullets get the fuck up to the firing line; not 25 feet behind it with two people on each side of you.

The firing line is KEY.

This was always one of my biggest complaints about shooting at the triangle pit at Capitol Forest; some people shot from back at the treeline, some out in the pit a bit, some in between . . . all over the damn place. Not cool, not safe.

Establish a firing line, and EVERYONE needs to respect it.

Seen it first hand. Granite Falls pit in about 2004. Couple Russians in cowboy hats with 1 of everything from Big 5 shooting from wherever in the gravel pit and people downrange/ahead of them

They set up behind me and the wife and let a shot off from a leveraction. I turned and fired a shot at their feet in anger. My wife was screaming at me cause she wasnt wearing ear pro :ROFLMAO:

#1 Russian was super apologetic and realized what theyd done I think. #2 Russian was angry and wanted to fight me til he realized I was still pointing a pistol at them

Good times. :thumbsup2:

We packed up and left shortly thereafter.

If this ever happens again it will have a totally different outcome.
