At the Shooting Range!
At least, that should be the case, but all too often, isn't.
In a very brief, but insightful post, Shelley Rae of GunNuts.net, writes of dealing with rude jerks, know it alls and other assorted bad representatives of the shooting sports.
"As gun owners, as shooters, as people who have even a passing interest in firearms or shooting sports we represent a community. As part of this community we are accountable for conducting ourselves in way that represents our hobby well and is welcoming for potential new shooters. It’s not difficult to conduct business in a friendly and un-intimidating manner.
I honestly get confused by gun owners who are gruff and flat-out rude. Conducting oneself in a way that has the possibility to negatively impact an entire community is irresponsible and frankly not likely to accomplish anything."
She's correctly identified the problem, but I'm guessing she's a wee bit young to flashback to what might just be the path to a very appropriate solution.
