    I haven't shot there for a while, but it's a great range. Actually part of the parks and rec dept. It's fun to shoot at and doesn't have any of the range drama that I hear about so often. I hope this doesn't screw it up.

    :sad2: sucks people have to off themselves like that. Why don't they just go fucking buy a gun and do it in their house. Not like they should care about money anyway

    I've always wondered why someone hasn't rented a gun and gone on a killing spree at the range.

    Last time I was at the indoor a pack of Arabs came in and wanted to rent guns. They were all renting AKs, ARs, various handguns, etc. They had NO idea what they were doing. I'm glad the range master put them in a totally different room. :o

    I'm surprised rental gun suicides aren't more common. Seems like the easiest way to do it. Especially in places where it's a fuckton of hassle to buy a gun.

    range down in Seattle won't allow single person gun rentals b/c of this. Must be in a group of 2 or more.

    I have heard of ranges doing one of two things to combat this

    1) Not allowing you to rent a gun if you are by yourself, I guess you might think twice if your brains are ending up on your buddy.

    2) Allowing you to rent a gun alone if you have brought in a handgun that you own.

    I was surprised when I went to the range down in Bellevue and they wouldn't let me. Fortunately I had my Sig on my so it turned out not to be a problem. When I asked why they gave me basically the above scenario. I thought that's kinda BS... that'll never happen. Oops. Guess I was mistaken.
