My brother, who lives in Westfield, MA, has recently become a 2A convert. He got his CCW license and a new Ruger LC9. He went to the range today and while the range was HOT, this happened:


The caption for the photo was:

Range safety rule #1. When you have a line of shooters firing.....DO NOT just walk IN FRONT of them and "set up shop" :o/ Dumb asses!

I was dumbfounded and had to ask for more specifics as to how and what happened. In my brother's words:

I was reloading when they walked out and I quickly put my gun down thinking maybe some called a cease fire and didn't hear it, although there are flashing lights throughout the building when one hits the cease fire button. I was watching in disbelief when the dude went to the end of the range, set up some targets for him and his wife, then laid on his stomach to show her how to shoot.

I told the RO who came over immediately and apparently they don't even belong to the club and thought it was a free-for-all so long as you had a gun!

Maybe he had a vest on and was trying to do in his wife?
