    One man's pettiness is another man's significant emotional event, I suppose. I've had no issues with Bracken, and will keep going there mainly because it's convenient. If I ever get yelled at, maybe I'll reassess.

    Exactly. If you do something that customers don't like, it's major. They're going to wind up leaving.

    It's not a petty issue to have someone get after you in an inordinately aggressive manner about an issue which itself is petty!
    Picking up the wrong brass? C'mon!
    The way she went off on him, you'd think he just spit in Jesus's face!

    There's ways to deal with people who break rules at places. And it's typically scaled according to what rule is being violated!
    Someone is unsafe and or sweeping everyone with their weapon? HELL YEAH! Get after that SOB with the wrath of god!
    Someone appears to be picking up brass that's not his? Why not walk over and remind him that such a thing is not allowed, and if he does it again he'll be banned from the range. In a calm but firm voice!

    Yes, you'll go to Camp Bullis with your "special entitlement" that most people don't have, but continue to slam Bracken when you have never written a personal report of that range, yet only repeat hearsay.

    What's up with that?

    Be well.

    I seem to remember an old discussion on whether honey or vinegar makes better bait for catching flies...

    Well, I earned that "special entitlement" by serving nearly 25 years in uniform defending this nation. If you don't think that's worthy of being able to shoot there, than that's your own "special" opinion and one you're able to spout because of my service. You're welcome.

    Secondly, I have been to Bracken and wasn't impressed with the way the management treated its customers. I didn't have a similar encounter as TD, but I have had several good friends who have and I don't doubt his or their word. It's not "hearsay," it's firsthand accounts from people I know well. You, on the other hand, are just some random person I have never met, so why would I take your opinion over people I trust?

    I also have stated on numerous occasions my disregard for the Bullethole, yet I know a lot of people (many of whom who are on this forum) who shoot there regularly. Oddly enough, they don't chastise me for having a differing opinion of the place. I will not shoot there, and after hearing such antics by the management of Bracken, I won't be spending any of my hard-earned cash there either. You have every right to spend yours there, but don't go lecturing me about not writing a personal report on the range (what am I, a range critic for the Express-News?!?) or claiming I am repeating "hearsay." This isn't a court of law, this is a gun forum where people are allowed to express their opinions, and if I want to share comments of those I know are truthful, than that's might right. If you have any problems with it, feel free to add me to your 'ignore' list. As a matter of fact, I wish you would; because I just added you to mine...
