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

    • And the bacon gets cooked before the aspargus is overcooked?    Just wondering...
    • Pork, the other white meat.  Just the aromas have the foreheads running for cover this way!! Is that politically incorrect or...
    • My goal this year was to build my own arrows. We will see if they work on September 1st. 
    • You may want to wait a bit longer for it to cool down more.  Dry and hot with fertilizer on it may just burn it up the rest of the way.  This is been one bad year for lawns let alone new sod. 🙁
    • hey guys. Wife and I moved into our new home the other month, and our lawn was looking great. We went out of town for a few days in July and came back to our grass almost all completely brown. I've been water it every evening for roughly 3-4hrs/night. The grass is slowly starting to come back, but not to what it was. And I don't believe it ever will. Our entire yard in SAND and little dirt, we were not able to put down black dirt before due to timing. My question is this: When can I put down weed n feed? or what kind of fertilizer do i need/able to use? or do I not treat my lawn with any chemical this season? 
    • Gotta love the blue-cheese butter!👍
    • So I sent an email to Evinrude  and made a phone call to an authorize Etech mechanic and evidently my chain was being yanked a bit.    I just thought if anyone here has ever heard of that
    • sweet corn on the smoker and ribeyes on the grill last night, with tater salad...  good eats...
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   On the Minnesota side, spinners and crawler harnesses are still the preferred method of walleye fishing, with the hot colors being pink/gold, orange/gold and orange/chartreuse. Walleye are being caught off of structure scattered in the mud between 20 and 30 feet. Down riggers and deep running crank baits have also been productive.   Canadian walleye are being caught in channels off of islands and along reefs in 18 to 25 feet of water. Both bottom bouncers with a crawler harness and a jig with minnow or shiner have both been successful in Canadian waters.   Musky fishing success has increased in the past week. Fish are being caught on crank baits and blade baits. With water temps in the low 70’s muskies are favoring rocks near weeds.    Our very own, Travis Palmquist, released a 54.5" musky yesterday!   Fall is a great time for trophy fishing!   We hope to see you soon,   Sunset Lodge
