    Just got off the phone with my dad, he heard on the radio that cops were being called for a shooting at a range near me. Don't have much details, will post news if there is anything more. For local people in SE Michigan, the range is Target Sports at 12 mile and Woodward.

    I really want to make the "a shooting at the shooting range? Shocked!" joke, but that really sucks for everyone involved.

    Do they rent out guns there? Sounds like either someone wanted to off themselves and rented one, or was just some dumb negligent asshole accidently shot himself.

    This isn't the first time at Target Sports. I grew up in Huntington Woods and my Father was a HWPD reserve. We used to go shooting there a lot. A few years back, I can't remember maybe 2000-2001 some guy Handcuffed himself in the mens room and put one in his head.

    And yes they rent out guns, I have been there a few times with idiots a few lanes down from me holding some Deagle sideways trying to act like they are hardcore then after 1 shot they suddenly pop off a few more into the ceiling or something. I prefer the Berkley police range, but you need to be a badge or family to go there. :)

    fucking drama queens have to off themselves in the biggest way possible. You wanna kill yourself, fine, but don't shit all over my hobby and all those other peoples' lives to do it.

    ROYAL OAK -- A 28-year-old Rochester Hills man killed himself with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in front of witnesses Wednesday afternoon at the Target Sports shooting range on Woodward Avenue, police said.

    The man, who was not identified pending notification of next of kin, had apparently arrived alone at the store around 1 p.m. and rented a .40 caliber handgun to shoot at targets, according to Royal Oak Police Lt. David Clemens.

    There are knives in the kitchen...a warm bath, a lot of liquor and some attention to the wrist will take care of it without shitting on our hobby.

    The policy at my range is that while they do rent guns, it's a gun for gun rental. meaning you have to bring in your own functional handgun to "trade in" for one of the guns at the range if you want to try something out.

    so that way we just encourage people to kill themselves in their homes instead of at the range.

    I was at a range a couple months ago that did something similar. While you didn't have to trade anything in, you did have to have a gun with you to rent unless you were with a friend. I guess they figure unless its a murder and suicide you can take you business elsewhere.
