A ton of people entered the shooting sports in the last few years. And as a result, its tougher and tougher to get a reservation at the range. Adding to the hoopla, many of these newbies show up late and are slow setting up and getting their targets out. Royal pain in the arse.
But yes, there’s an Ace-in-the-Hole – bad weather. If it gets a little cold, windy or wet, these would-be outdoor marksmen bail. Need proof? The picture above was taken on a misty, damp day. Look down range. Only five targets, for a place that typically packs in 20 shooters at a clip. Hey, I’m praying for rain at the range.
