    Nice. We kinda' sorta' have the same thing at the Aurora Gun Club, east of Denver. However, IT'S a western range = no trees, no water, and disty praire for miles and miles. We do have a magnificent view of the front range of the Rocky Mountains.

    For Valentines day, 2010, I gave my wife a Glock 19. My wife isn't a gun person, but she liked the idea of that particular gun. She is a very busy professional and getting her out to shoot just about required making an appointment.

    At QSC, a range officer is required to open the range. They are constantly urging people to qualify as ROs so that the ranges can be opened more often. By the way, the RO is not allowed to shoot. (if there are two qualified people, they can switch with each other). Usually, one finds out on Thursday if a range is going to be open on the weekend.

    I made arrangements with my wife to get out to the range with her when the range which the website said was for pistols and rifles was open.

    The RSO (he kinda oversees the RO) was there but wouldn't let anyone shoot until half an hour after the RO showed up. As of 45 minutes after the range was supposed to be open and no one knew where the RO was, we left.

    A few months later, I convinced her to try again. Same range. Website still indicates that it is for pistols and rifles. This time, the RSO told me that no matter what the website said, it was wrong; the USMC didn't allow pistols on that range. But he'd let me shoot this time from port #1 if I moved all the target frames out of it because port #1 was the only port where handguns were allowed. No way I was going to move all those target frames. We left.

    I discussed this with the president of the club and was told that, indeed, pistols were allowed on that range, but that the RO or RSO can make up any rules they want.

    We did not renew our membership this year. I'd rather pay a lot more to a commercial range and know that when I schlep somewhere to shoot, I'm going to be able to shoot.
