So tonight I went to a local indoor shooting range (Wolcott Guns) to put some rounds down range in a couple guns. I really don't enjoy shooting at an indoor range with guys & gals shooting handguns, rifles and shotguns just feet from me. The "pounding, concussion and noise" really take some of the enjoyment out of it but that's what you get at a public range. Other than that things went good; the guns shot good and I hit close to where I wanted.
I shot for about 40 minutes then was packing up when I noticed a younger (younger than me anyway) gal standing near my lane. I paid little attention to her as this isn't the place to strike up conversation and I don't need any new friends, especially female.
So I packed up, went out to the men's room and washed my hands (before & after) taking a wiz then went to the counter to pay for my time. After I finished up the counter guys sees this gal (referenced above) as asks if she had a question. she says "can you show me how to use this gun?" He says "aaahh sure". She says "hang on, I'll go get it" He says "NO, I'll come into the range as it's MUCH safer". I couldn't imagine if she would have come out with a loaded gun (turned out to be a .22 semi automatic) into the showroom of the joint.
So I mooched around a bit and left without any other drama, thankfully.
It's a very nice place with a fair gun inventory, plenty of ammo and other accessories. They rent all manner of long guns and handguns and do some classes too. Actually that's where I bought the Ruger Single Six a month or so ago at a good price......
