Janq, someone shot themselves at the S&W range?
Remember dude that helped us at the front counter that I know.
He was telling me about this event just a few days before you and I were there. He said it happened just about 2 yrs ago, a suicide, and that fools do/have come in off the street for rentals and gone into the range with attitude. He said that if they at the counter sense somethign off about a person or they just don't have a good vibe for them they will refuse rental and range entry.
The range I used to shoot at that was dwon the street from my house in Chantilly, VA, Blue Ridge Arsenal, just last year had a guy go in and commit suicide. Another range I used to shoot at in Woodbridge, VA, Shooters Paradies, last year had a LEO make an ND into his own leg with his duty arm. I posted about both in OT when theyr were new news.
BTW off topic a bit but the same occurs at paintball fields too.
I've learned the hardway to trust nobody I don't know and to keep my goggles on even in the safe/tech area untill I'm well away from idiots.
