Well I can finally add to this thread, and the ironic part is it was MY first time at the range and I have a story about some guy I met there.
So I get in line to see the cashier and get to talking to the guy in front of me. Basically nice guy, young, probably mid to late 20's, runs a Discount Tobacco down in the city (chicago) and tells me about his guns etc etc.
Anyways, this is my first time on the range, I've fired guns a handful of times before with friends in the woods, but I knew this was a little different so I did my research on Range etiquette. I also went alone, so I was a tad nervous getting on the range and trying to make sure I didn't do anything wrong or anything that would make me look like an obvious fool.
Long story short, the guy ends up in the stall next to me, lets me shoot his pistol, and when I hand it back to him and compliment him on it, he smiles, nods, says "Yeah, I'm pretty good with it too", turns to his target and rapid-fires his entire clip(magazine*
) at the target.
Range master comes running over and chews him out about no rapid-firing on the range, or any range for that matter.
Funniest part is a week later I run into the same guy at the range, and he goes on a rant about how that rule is bullshit and there's no state law banning rapid-fire at ranges
