Good thing he’s a Christian, because he’s liable to cause someone to meet Jesus.
Friend or not, he’s a danger to others, if not to himself. You don’t need friends like that.
Keep shooting with your friend till this happens.
City Cop yeah… Sheriff deputies - mabey … definitely not a State Trooper
I didn’t expect to be called a troll.
I been called worst, just play it out like road rage, wave and say “my bad”, and move on-
and as a Troll expert, you’re not a Troll
Read my mind. Friend or no I'm not endangering my family.
that was FUNNY! BRAD!!!
Well, Hollywood Southern Sheriff, anyway.
completely. If a talk costs you a friend, sad as that might be, it's far better than you or a loved one losing your/their life or limb.
I recommend shooting by yourself… I prefer it, get into my range bench, lay out my stuff, pop a photo for THR, nobody touching my stuff. RELAXING!
But if I see someone messing up! I will call Ceses Fire quick !
The guy is either too oblivious to remember basic firearm safety, or too arrogant to think they apply to him. If he continues down this path both are just as deadly when, not if, ND #4 happens.
I have too many former friends Ive moved on from over the decades due to arrogance, ignorance or selfishness. Safety would also rate just as high if I had a friend who played that fast and loose with guns.
Good luck! I hope he comes around to understanding his responsibilities and improves his gun handling skills.
But as other posters wrote, being all done with him might be the best call. Cutting him out sounds like the extreme scenario, one you might not relish and may have a hard time with, but it's better than the possible tragic alternative. Sounds like a game of Russian roulette with this guy going around armed....
No Guns involved - relaxing - check out some of the nice views at the beach
That seems the ideal path. Make yourself available for concerts, dinners, hikes, fishing, canoeing, and shared family vacations. Bolster those other interests and shooting may easily become an afterthought. If he insists upon continuing to shoot at your range you will still need to have the serious gun safety chat.
That gun Chat should come from the RO. He might take it more seriously.
"I was safe enough in the AF, now all of a sudden I'm not safe" Hey it happens, we aren't always as good as we once were.
That’s just the way it is. If your friend wants to change with your help, good on him. If not, you need to reevaluate the people you choose to surround yourself with. You’re definitely in the right in your thinking.
I got too old to hunt anymore but I still go to the range a good bit. I only go to the range in the middle of the week when there are very few if any people there. Idiots are everywhere. Even at the range and harder to spot.
middle of the week was my favorite time to go to the range in Renton. All the retirees would bring out all the fun old guns and we get to chatting! good times!
