    Ive been to it and it was ok. Like you said the night shoot is cool. I used to belong to that gun range but quit over careless shooting practices and them just not caring about their members. Be careful if you go.

    i don't see where you think it unsafe.there are only about 15 range officers,a guy at every gate to keep unauthorized people out,they are not allowed to lock and load there weapon till they are on the firing line and at no time are they allowed to clear a jam if it jams then it has to stay jammed or the have to be able to get it out with the muzzle down range so i don't get it but to each his on i guess.

    The machine gun shoot is safe, its all the other times they dont care. Ive been there and seen a guy ask permission to put out blackpowder to shoot, they said yes, it blew up in his face. They wouldnt even call an ambulance for the guy. Not smart or safe to allow others to put out explosives to shoot at unless they are experts and certified as such.

    On normal days your are lucky if there is ONE range officer and he is a little slow, if you know what I mean. Seen many people allowed to walk out in the range while people were still shooting. Had one guy walk directly in my line and range officer was smoking a cig talking to someone while he was out walking around. Last year there was a guy killed out there, I dont know if it was suicide or what.

    You can not place a target out in the field without everyone around you shooting at it. Told the owner and he said so what. I said I wont see you again. Then got a call about how sad he was to see me gone, I told him why I left and he hung up.

    The Machine Gun Shoot is safe though but I dont trust anyone out there any other time. Ive also seen people drinking out there, sorry but to me, alcohol and guns dont mix well.
