Wrong, slick. I've been here 55 years. Your requirements suggest you're trying to hire Lee Lapin. Your offerings suggest that you're lookin' for Barney Fife.

I am happy you have it all figured out. First of all, most of our employees are retired people who love this job. Second, these three positions are not to replace anyone but are needed because business is getting overwhelming.

Again, If your level of life satisfaction is such that this Job does not appeal to you, perhaps you should not worry about it.

If you're looking for retired people you should've said so or at least somehow indicated that. Good grief.

Because it doesnt need to be said and it is not a requirment. Active Duty Military, Retired people, College students, ect... Simply put, people who need a part time job or want one. All of these types of people work at the Bullet Hole. Some for over a decade and some for a short while.

If you would approach the matter in a another way, I invite you to purchase or start a range that becomes the most frequented range in one of the largest metro areas in the nation. If you think this is a bad opportunity, I invite you to offer better opportunities to people who would consider or need this job.

Hey, I'd LOVE to do it. But my wife won't move to San Antonio, and anyway she says I can't have another job.

Wrong, slick. I've been here 55 years.

If you've been here 55 years, why haven't you learned some common couresty in that time period? No one asked you your opinion of what The Bullet Hole pays, and, guess what slick? No ones cares much what you think about it either.

Maybe in your 55 years you haven't learned this, but places like gun shops and firing ranges run on a very thin margin of profit. They cannot afford to pay big bucks to all their employees. Instead, places like The Bullet Hole offer substantial benefits in the form of shooting freaking machine guns, for example. Sounds like a great part-time, weekend job to me.

I would love to work there, but unfortunately I am in Indiana and moving to Montana in the spring. It would be good to work with what I love and with a "lanceman". We do have to stick together.

Lindenberger: I find your comments rather mean. It is nice of that shooting range to think of offering jobs to fellow THR users. If I were a student or retired LEO living around San Antonio, I would be pleased to get the money, the experience and the fun...

For what it's worth... I live in San Antonio and have shot at all of the public ranges is town, there at least a dozen. The Bullet Hole is one of two that I frequent. Michelle runs a good operation. It's a friendly place. The range has a varied catalog of shooting events available for shooters to enjoy from low intensity fun shoots to serious IDPA and USPSA matches.

As a side note, the job requirements as posted, pretty much describe the folks that work at the range now. Can't see any reason not to want to hire more of the same.

Michelle, don't hire any mutts and keep up the good work.

From the description of the location, it seems you could walk west for about a mile and put the job on the bulletin board at Air Force Village II. There should be some retired folks there who know their way around a range, and guns, and who are experienced at giving and taking orders.

First of all, I love shooting over at the Bullet hole. Sadly I live in Live Oak and its clear across town :( If I lived any closer I would consider it, but at the cost of 2 dollars and whatever the hell else they want to charge for it right now, it would not be worth driving over there daily or even just for the weekends. I frequent one of the much closer ranges, but they dont stay open past dark and its nice to go to the Bullet Hole everynow and then to do some nighttime firing.

Heres a free bump for the nice guys over at the Bullet Hole, for those in the SA area or even Austin and happen to be down here visiting, its a top notch place to shoot. Sadly its just a tad bit too far down the road from I.

BTW, Michelle's a hottie, ok nuff said, I better stop this posting right now :)

Good luck finding some help, past few times I was out there it was uber busy, you guys definately could use a few extra hands.

You are right and that is a great idea. I may very well do that.

Working at the Bullet Hole isn't about the salary anyway. I worked there for a bit and didn't even think about the pay. The rewards are in getting to hang out at a range, meeting great people, helping new shooters learn the hobby, having Mack diagnose your shooting problems,getting paid to indulge your hobby, getting to shoot a wide variety of firearms, did I mention hanging out at a range?? I loved working there, I just don't have that many weekends available, plus I like to shoot on weekends:) If anybody is looking for a job that doesn't even feel like a job, this is it. Highly recommend it!!

P.S. AmYisraelChai
Haven't been out there in a while, tell Mack howdy for me and I think we still have a plate rack challenge hanging between us dont we??

A range safety officer has a great deal of responsibility on his shoulders. He should be paid appropriately. I also noticed the post didn't mention anything about fringe benefits such as life and health insurance, paid holidays and vacation time, paid sick days, etc. If a business can't afford to provide those for its employees then it's a business in trouble. If the owners have those benefits and the employees don't then it's immoral.

First of all, did you read the part about "Part Time Weekend Job" Second have you seen a negative comment from people who use or have worked there? We are not replacing anyone we are adding a little help because business is overwhelming.

Again, If you have moral issues (***) I invite you to offer people better opportunities.

I worked part time at two ranges, one indoor, one outdoor, as an NRA certified Range Safety officer and salesman, and even though the money wasn't much, I never had more fun in my life. I truely hated leaving that job, and when I retire, that is where I will go right back to!
Too bad I am in AZ, would love that job as a part timer again!:cool:

Man, that sounds like a page out of my union presidents re-election speech. You did read the part-time thing right?? He's not drafting anybody, he's offering people who are interested a chance to spend a little time at the range. And oh yeah, you get some cash for your time. Is there a "lighten up" smiley around anywhere?

I dont fly enough to justify a business jet. It is not cost effective. You need to fly about 250 hours a year to make it the better financial choice. Plus when you lease, you can choose the right plane for the trip. Some planes cost 2K an hour and some cost 20K an hour. Sometimes all you need is a 2K plane, however sometimes you need a 20K plane.

Having said that, We are going to drive to Shot Show, Take some much needed time and enjoy ourselves along the way and visit some friends.

By the number of crappy threads replying to your want-ad, I bet this is the last time you try to post here that your looking for people. :confused:

Folks, this is The High Road, not the I Judge You Road. Please try to remember what made this boad so welcoming to you and me.

If I lived in the area, I would gladly try to work there, but I think that I am sadly not qualified enough.

This actually works. I get free advertising to a target audience, but I get to offer what so many are looking for, a job doing what some people want to do. The calls roll in and for the folks that count in this matter, everyone wins. I get the help I need and get to grow the dream and someone gets to make some money living a little dream of their own. All parties are making a choice and an offer, that is all. When the offers and the choices come to an agreement the glory of free will and the free market prevails. (I feel like making this speach in front of an American flag :D )

Someone always has an opinion. Someone is telling Tiger Woods how he messed something up, someone is telling Bill Gates about mistakes he has made....and so on. When people decide I am not doing something to there satisfaction, I first decide if I can learn from them, if they are an armchair expert with little real knowledge of the subject, I invite them to get to the point on the matter I have arrived at and then do it how they please. For the most part, the opionions never stop, but no one has ever taken me up on the challenge.

The funny thing about the High Road is I get the most negativity and opinions on how I am doing it wrong. I also get the highest response rate.

I still wish you the best of luck in finding someone, I highly doubt you will have trouble, if you were only a tad bit closer, 45 miles down the road is just a hair too much

Another free bump for the nice folks of the bullethole, it really is a nice place to go shoot folks

check it out sometime if you havent yet
