So last week was the first week of our range being opened back up, and yesterday was my first RSO shift and it just happened to be a beautiful day out.
So of course we were slammed, which was great to see!
Had the regular Saturday afternoon bunch out there (always a good time to hanging out with them out there), but also some newer members out there with their kids getting them acclimated to firearms and a couple member with their spouses who either had no or little firearms experience.
The biggest safety issue I saw (and only from the “new shooter adults btw”) was poor trigger discipline and having to remind them a couple times about when they come off target, the finger needs to come out of the trigger housing area. But good muzzle discipline by all and good adherence to RSO calls/directions.
There was one gentlemen who had brought out a friend who was a new shooter and had just recently acquired a pistol and was teaching him the basics and helping him shoot etc. During one of the cold range calls while his buddy was down range changing targets, I went over and told him I thought it was really cool for him to come out with his friend to help him get squared away and thanked him for it. He appreciated that.
So overall it was a glorious day at the range yesterday. Anyone else get out lately?
