So happy we can finally give 0 star reviews. This range has the most aggressive and unfriendly RSOs, at least I think that's what he called himself. I dunno. They walk around like they own the place watching everyone like some creepy pervs. Anyway me and my friend rented a 50 cal bmg hand cannon thingy and it was really cool. So, I take my phone out to take some great selfies for my IG, follow me @xXculotontoautofoto1999Xx, and this RSO dude jumps me, breaks my wrist, and dry humps me for no reason. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE. Unfriendly staff didn't even give me a refund.
Better to buy your own gun and shoot in your garage. Just as good as a range.
Apparently he didn't learn a lesson....
I ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon. . . I’ll let you know.

WOW! He's the kind of guy that would then sue the range if he shot his buddy, if they hadn't of stopped him. :shock:

They should post the security video as the response.

I'm betting Crossroad's post was satire. Apparently it was very good satire! :lol:
Just realistic enough to make you wonder.

Yes, the guy committed some egregious errors. And quick action by the RSO most likely prevented a tragedy. But I'm a bit confused by all of the 'ban that guy' talk. Once things have settled down, I'd explain to him exactly what he did wrong and try to help him get better. He's obviously excited about the prospect of shooting, but clearly doesn't have much understanding or education when it comes to safety. Isn't it our job to help grow the shooting sports and spread the message of firearms safety? That guy would be a prime candidate. Kicking him to the curb doesn't do us or him any good.

Holy smokes!!!

And he might be banned from there forever. If owned the place I would ban him and his entire family and any unborn children, grandchildren, and so on forever.
Why would you ban this idiot. This episode needs to be used as a teaching moment so that it never happens again. I've had similar done to me at academy with a sales person looking on! No ammo luckily.
When I sold firearms I took guns away from people being stupid, and I knew the guns were unloaded because I had just cleared it.

Because you can’t fix stupid. Ignorance, maybe, but not stupidity.

Perfect example of why we should read online reviews with considerable discernment. Very seldom do we get the other side of the story.

I respectfully disagree, although I do understand your point.

These egregious errors were potentially deadly, not just stupid. I'm trying to think of a reasonable analogy, but can't come up with one. Maybe putting on a blindfold and driving a car through a playground? Simply put, this guy should never touch a gun again until he has undergone extensive training and has proven that he understands the seriousness of holding a loaded gun. I'm not sure that your average gun range is equipped to provide this level of remedial training.

If I owned this range, and I had the training resources available, I might tell this guy, and his friend, that they would be allowed on the range again, only after they had paid for and received training by my staff on gun safety and had demonstrated their ability to act like responsible adults on the range. Even then, for their first 5 or 6 live fire sessions, I might require that they reserve, and pay for, all of the shooting lanes so they do not put anyone else in danger. I highly doubt that the type of people who are capable of the behavior shown in that video would be open to this offer, but I might decide to at least give them the choice.

I did not see or recognize this as satire. I figured someone that could do something so stupid could post such a review.

Discernment is still key and I'm not always the most discerning.

Channel 13 had it on the news tonight. It was at Top Gun range; supposedly during a new shooters class.
