Ever notice, at the gun range, all the holes in the wall that are not where they are supposed to be? My favorite is the ones on the ceiling right about the station you are standing at. You know what I mean. Someone messed their drawers when they did that. Or they SHOULD have, for such a boneheaded negligent discharge.
And, ever notice how some ranges put down talc on the floor? MBtGE told that this was to show you if your rounds were bouncing off the floor because you had set your target low. It’s ok if your rounds do that, but it is BETTER if your line of fire goes right into the back stop. It’s easier on the range that way, and its often range policy/preference that you do it right. Just line up your paper target better, so the shot goes from you, to the target, to the backstop.
The automated target moving thingys at the NRA Range are COMPLICATED. I’m a slow-head and there are just too many settings and they don’t seem to work intuitively. I CAN get the target to eventually roll down range to where I want it, but… sheesh.
