    Fuck at least wait till you get to a solitary place if that's what you're planning to do - Why fuck up others around you? At least the second chick bought the gun. "Hmm... $50 verses a couple hundred to kill myself. I'll rent that one please."

    I thought chicks didn't do the messy suicides. Why not take some pills and fall asleep in a running car in the garage?

    I'm sure ranges are trying to figure out how to stop this. I've heard that some won't let you shoot unless you are with friends... people with friends don't kill themselves is the logic behind that. Some won't let you rent a gun unless you already own one (if you are going to kill yourself, you could have done it with your own at home so you are now okay to rent one of theirs...)

    This is going to make it a lot tougher for new shooters to get started... they are a potential suicide or too risky to be allowed on the range :hsugh:

    $50 to rent a 9mm? Damn, it's $9.50 here for just about anything on the wall.

    most catalytic converters are too efficient these days to create enough carbon monoxide (heard it on car talk)

    Oh, I remember. I didn't say those were my ideas, I said those were things that some ranges were implementing.

    Probably $50 once you buy ammo, targets, rent the lane, eyes & ears, etc.

    That's about what it is at the range I go to if you don't come in prepared.

    My local range charges $14.95 and gives you a free target and eyes/ears. Never rented a gun from them (I bring my own) but cant be anywhere near $50. If I was gonna do something stupid like kill myself, why not go all out, buy a really nice $1000 Colt or something, shoot it a bunch of times just to say you did, then kill yourself. Or dont kill yourself because you have found new enjoyment in shooting a nice handgun.

    We just had an attempted one here. At a really cool small/non-douchy place.

    I would just prefer that they utilize one of those other methods instead of fucking up our ranges.

    That's just stupid. You don't need carbon monoxide to kill you. Carbon dioxide is also a colorless odorless gas, and still comes out of the tailpipe in abundance.

    Someone needs to get the word out to these morons that they can still kill themselves in their garage just fine.

    I'm all for creating suicide booths as well- or just suicide shooting ranges. Just hose 'em down when Suzy Sixpack is done ending herself.

    I think you shouldn't be allowed to rent a gun at a range unless you own a gun, I guess :o What other reasonable measures could they put into place? :(

    Upscale? :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Snotty/= upscale. You should hear people make fun of that place. It's not upscale, it just takes advantage of the light shooter.
