Some people have no apparent need for social acceptance — they just thrive on being the object of scorn and ridicule. In fact, they actively seek that position in life. It’s easy to find those folks online; social media trolls are more numerous than Hollywood actors at a “Learn how to love yourself with boundless enthusiasm” workshop.
If you’re one of those types and just feel the need to draw the wrath of the Range Officer, get kicked off the range, and attract the stink eye from everyone else present at your next shooting outing, then we have some helpful suggestions for you.
1. Shoot at the Ground
The polished concrete floors at indoor ranges are designed that way so you can skip bullets to the target, right?
If you’re at an indoor range, the Range Officer is going to get super upset if you shoot at the floor, even accidentally. Ricochets indoors are a particularly bad thing, and bullets really tend to tear up even the most durable concrete floors. The very best floor shine and polish job ain’t gonna buff out those divots. The best ways to be thrown out of an indoor range for this offense are to have your finger on the trigger at the wrong times and to shoot too fast.
