Guy had been banned from the range, oh, two days before. For breaking several rules, and lying about it. And then shows up thinking- apparently- "Nobody will remember."
Oh yes, there's a note on your record. That's a surprise?
And then he argued with the guy who informed him of this. And then argued with the manager. Because all that 'safety rules' crap shouldn't apply to him.
Yes, it does, asshat. Which is why, if you try coming back again, you'll be told 'No'.
Happier scenes: a number of first-time shooters in the last few days, and every one of them left with that smile. Very excellent.
I will note that we got a S&W M&P Compact .22 several months ago, and that thing has been used a lot, and there have been precisely three problems:
One idiot decided to 'adjust' the rear sight and lost the screw.
Two idiots decided to mess with the takedown latch and partially disassembled it("It just stopped working!")
It's kept ticking along quite nicely on a diet of Mini Mags, and all who've shot it seem to like it.
Speaking of S&W, they seem to have a problem on some guns with either not tightening some things like they should(revolver ejector rods coming loose), or using threadlocker on things they shouldn't(takedown screw on some semi-auto pistols) and not where they should(the fitting on the barrel that said screw goes into). They really need to change that.
