HandGunner

butt hurt range officer

Recommended Posts

Was at a open to public range saturday. Headed to the 100 yard lanes was asked what we were shooting. Handguns we replied. One worker says handguns? Sweet have fun. The butt hurt one says 100 yards no handgun can ever hit that you guys need to head over to the 25 yard range. We tell him the past 3 years we have came here to shoot our Tc encore 308 handgun and our s&w 460 at 100 wih no problem. No no no I need to speak with someone before we let you shoot 100. The fun workers just let us shoot while the hurt one left. At the end of the day he asked me to see my target down range through the spotting scope and realized I had big ole 460 rounds grouped tighter than ppl shooting their rifles at 50 and 100 and had nothing to say. Some people are just the very jelous butt hurt type whike they changed targets ppl were talking with him and saying how they would love to try a handgun at 100 and further he just disagreed shut them down and kept "reminding" them handguns cant hit 100 yards. Just a rant

What range were you at?

I've seen hand guns at the Oakdale Gun Club 50 and 100 yard ranges a few times over the years and it usually gets the range officers talking but only out of curiosity and interest. But from my experience the guys at Oakdale are a great group and do a nice job at their range.

Some guys get an idea in their head and just can't let it go, I assume the guy you ran into falls firmly into that group.

East bethel beaver brook... yea one range worker was taking pics it was fun he was showing me pics of myself the moment the gun jumps and I never realized it jumped that high. I enjoy everyones curiosity and questions I tell em if you got the money go for it handgun hunting is somewhat increasing its great fun. I like to let them know what kind of handguns are out their for hunting things they never knew exsisted. Promoting handgun hunting I guess you can say.

Btw I think their buisness has declined the past year september always slow or dead when they open to the public but in otober they would have lines and people waiting to shoot all day. Last year a week before firearms opened it was dead this year this past saturday didnt have many people either not sure why plus the original workers arent their anymore. We use to go a couple times before openner i did my gun saftey throuh them

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
