Default only takes one

Our local desert range was just closed. This is open range property, many different pits and a 300 yd burm.
Some one ................ Shot a ceramic insulator on a city connector high line, causing 45000 in damage. This has happens 4 times in 5 months with no one to blame. Now our free shooting area is off limits.

can't fix stupid.

At one of the ranges around here, a local LEO was firing an AK and sent a 7.62X39 round up and over the burm. Blew through a guys living room window the next couple fields over. No semi auto rifles allowed there anymore. Sucks because its one of the only ranges with a 300yd rifle section local....

Happens all the time, they almost shut down Table Mesa due to idiots shooting up the Telephone poles, plus all the garbage they leave behind (not to forget the occasional body).
I bet you wait a few and the morons will post their stupidity on Youtube.
Several vandals here in AZ have been caught and prosecuted when they posted up the antics and got turned in.
Some examples of the stupid:

We had a swinging target out at our private range and the other day when I took my friend shooting, it is one of those big red gong polyurethane targets, he decided he wanted to see it swing so he aimed and shot at the top of the gong where the steel rod goes through it, I asked him "why did you aim there?" he said I wanted to spin it, I really wanted to yell at him but I didnt but I wont be taking him back out there, I tried to explain that you shoot the middle of the target not the hinge point to make it swing, he was also the one dressed in all tactical gear to sight in our rifles. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm!!!

Sad for sure. I see it all the time, not just in shooting. I also am active in ATVing. People do stupid stuff, and can really trash up the trails.

I try and do my part to be a good steward of the sport. I pack it in I pack it out, not to mention picking up other peoples trash along the way. Same goes at the range. we have a public shooting range anybody can go to that place gets trashed. I joined the local gun club this year, and it is well run, and folks take pride in it.

It is up to each of us to our part to ensure our children and grandchildren will have place to enjoy the sport of shooting.
