I need to have a little bitch this morning for really no good reason, so here goes. Annoying/obnoxious/pointless stuff people do on the shooting range, whether it actually affects me in any meaningful way or not. -- there is a guy who spends ages filling one of those expensive, complicated speed loader arrangements for a AR 15 magazines with 10 rounds, and then pushes them in. it would take him a quarter of the time to put them straight in the damn magazine. -- people who spend 2000 euros on a rifle and a nice piece of glass and then put surplus ammunition through it, shooting on the tiny accuracy targets. -- there is a guy with an HK SL 8 piece of junk (the whole thing is Tupperware and wobbles, particularly the plastic scope rail with respect to the upper receiver) and then blames his 6 inch groups on "neck retention due to the cases having been reloaded several times, so being a bit tired", and won't have it that is nothing to do with the ammunition but rather the wobbly piece of junk he is shooting it through. And in any case neck retention cannot possibly have that much effect! -- hunters who shoot 4 inch groups at 50 m with their 300 Winchester Magnum hunting rifles and then complain that they can't get the rifle to zero (because they are crap shots and they are chasing individual shots around the card). And frankly, given that the biggest thing in this country to shoot is a red deer, 300 Winchester Magnum is going to send the damn thing into orbit. Noisy buggers. -- excusing bad shooting with "it's a new rifle and it still needs shooting in". Then where is your solvent, your brushes, and why are you not shooting it in? -- acknowledging an enormous flinch, setting the sights correspondingly, then loaning your pistol out to somebody who can actually shoot and not telling him that it's going to shoot a foot high and 6 inches right at 25 m as a result. -- people shooting the internal competitions who don't know the conditions of competition and shoot it at the wrong distance, or in the wrong stance etc. -- people who get annoyed if you hold a handgun with 2 hands. Especially when I can actually out-shoot them with one hand by miles anyway. -- this is a ridiculous one: when asked by somebody if he reloaded, he replied "no, I don't reload, because any idiot can do it and I don't think that's safe." That's an incredible feat of logic and leads us to one of 2 conclusions: he is an idiot and would blow himself up anyway, or he's just a plain idiot. -- incredibly long pre-shot or pre-shoot, professional looking rituals (usually accompanied by all the gear) by people whose time would be better spent learning to just actually shoot straight in the 1st place. -- a hot 7.62 NATO case on bare skin when I'm trying to shoot straight! Any more for any more?
