    :D :scrutiny: I was at the range tonight talking w/ one of the other members and got to wondering...what are some good lines you've heard at the range??? :scrutiny: :D
    Now, I am not going to count "is that a gun or are you just happy to see me?" :rolleyes: Tough to use anyway if it's a guy talking to a girl ;)

    it wasn't a range, but a gun shop (which could be a whole separate thread). now i was looking at some revolvers, and this kid, who was definitely not 18, asked for something i have never heard of in my life..."yeah i need a grip for my smith and wesson glock." as the owner and i looked at him oddly, he said, "yeah, for a colt glock i mean."....well glock was used twice so we kinda guessed thats what he wanted, something for a glock. gotta love it... i actually laughed out loud once he left.

    Glock is becoming the new nickname for gun. I hate that. I took a buddy to the range a while back and we were firing my old Kimber. He asked me if it was a Glock? I asked him to leave.:D

    when the old man a few benches down says " i normally keep em in the x- ring, but the sun is my eyes" and it is mid day the sun is high in the sky, and he is under a covered firing line. his groups looked like a shotgun pattern!:D

    "Nice sniper rifle," said of a CZ .22 rifle with a centerfire scope.

    "I'm not used to this kind of ammo"

    "I'm used to a scope, not sights"

    "It must be a sticky trigger"

    "Must not be clean"

    "I hate Glocks" my friend Johnny said after removing the center 3/4" of his target at 7 yards with 15 rounds from my G19. "I hate you", I replied.

    My friend Tony, and I were shooting my SW99, and this old guy comes up to the line with a revolver. My friend, was really new to shooting, and had only shot autos. I asked the guy if my friend could shoot it. He says "Sure, its a .357". So Tony shoots it, and is really impressed. After the old guy leaves, Tony says "Whoa, a .357! That had some kick to it. Can you imagine what the magnum one feels like?" It took a while before I could calm down enough to explain it to him.
    We still laugh about that one.

    Wal-Mart had HUGE cans of beans on clearance. My shooting buddy and I picked up a few. We took them to the range. I liked up my AK on one and popped it, beans flew about 10 feet in the air and the can bounced about 5, I didn't one side of the can was in spanish till my partner looked over and said "holly frijoles!"

    I laughed so hard I had to clear the AK and step away from the line.

    Once I went to a fairground with my girlfriend (as she was at the time) and she urged me to go do the airgun stall where you knocked down little metal plates to win prizes. "Nuh uh," I said, "Those things are always rigged so you can't hit a thing."

    "Go on," she says "just for fun." I agreed and paid my 20p or whatever it was. The target was perhaps 4ft from the muzzel. The target consisted of a metal box, a bit like a picture frame, and inside was a row of 5 metal plates, hinged so that they fell when hit. I took aim on the leftern most plate and fired. The plate on the far right fell over. The lady working the stall gawped at me and said "How did you do that?"

    "I curled it," I said.

    Overheard at a range:

    "I learned to shoot this good when I was a Ranger in the Air Force."

    My friend and I were at a range shooting a wide variety of rifles. A man and his son came in while my friend was shooting his WASR-10 and the son started to set down his .22 rifle at the table to his left. The father said "no, dont sit next to him, he's got an Uzi" :confused:

    Taking my BAR to a public range is always good for some kind of comment.

    Most start with "You're not supposed to have one of those" or "We don't allow .50 Cal here" (Even though it's just "lowly" '06).

    Why would anyone think a BAR is a .50 cal? :confused:

    I guess 'cause it's long? You'd have to ask the old fart that made me leave the range :evil:
    Several other High Roaders were with me and witnessed the hilarity....

    I always get some interesting looks when I bring the (admittedly semi-auto) Browning M1919 belt-fed to the range.

    It's fun to hear folks behind the line taking about it ("Yeah, that's one of those .50 caliber machineguns! They're not legal in California anymore!" - when I lived in California), and I always chuckle a bit.

    Or "Holy sweet Jesus?! What are you shooting?!" from the Range Safety Officer when I was shooting crappy Olympic .30-06 from my Remington 700. That ammo produced a stunning concussive wave and a >4ft fireball out the front of the gun while shooting at night. Absolutely a spectacle to behold. I've not seen fireballs like that from thumpinblitzenboomin' ultramags. Of course, I don't shoot that ammo anymore...

    To the guy who accidentally covered me with the muzzle of his pistol:

    "Please don't do that anymore. I'm not wearing my body armor today."

    To the buddy who tried to simultaneously line up the BUIS (both front and rear) and a red dot while shooting another buddy's AR:

    "The back-up sights are for back-up only!"

    I don't get it. Couldn't you have just shown him the ammo you were using? Or is this one of those situations where they just plain didn't want you there and were just making up stuff in order to ask you to leave?

    One day when I was sighting in a scoped AR15 at the rifle range I had a strange guy comment on how great of a shooter he was though he didn't even have a firearm there with him.

    Then, he offered to "turn my knobs" for me. :eek: :what: :barf:

    This range is owned and operated by one of the grumpiest people on the planet. It caters to deer rifle sighters that fire 8, maybe 10 shots then go home.

    When we High Roaders showed up with BARs, piles of ARs, AKs, K31s, SBR's etc the guy was already in a foul mood so who knows.

    It was also the only time I've ever been asked by anyone for the paperwork on an SBR or he would "have to call somebody".

    It's also the last time I will ever be at that range.

    Ha-Ha!! I almost lost my gum on that one. :D

    Not at the range but at a gun show with a buddy.

    This was said by an old-timer while I was looking at a Ruger Redhawk .44, 7.5".
    "You'll have-ta brace yourself against a tree to shoot that thing".

    I just smiled as my buddy did his best not to laugh (we were both trying to
    be polite). The day before we had shot about 10 rnds each out of my
    .45-70 BFR. Half of them were single handed. :evil:

    "That's what I get for buying that crappy Blazer ammo" after getting failures on most every shot and having "groups" that barely hit the 4'x8' backboard at 10 yrds. Then he realized he was shooing 9mm ammo in a .40 S&W!
