My wife and I went to Ben Avery this weekend. It was OK at best. I see why people like it but there were just WAY TOO many people there and since I didn't know any of them, I was pretty uncomfortable. I guess I'm just not a fan of that many people (some were obviously WAY inexperienced with guns) in one place. One guy had a malfunction in his pistol and brought the gun over to a Range Master (while still trying to fix it...big no no). The RM freaked out (which was cool to watch) but just shows that some people don't know what they are doing. Too many chances for problems and really unsafe practices. Plus, I wasn't aware that children would be running around there. I'm just not a fan of having five year old kids running around like crazy little people and their parents weren't watching them. Some of the kids were just plain scared because of all the noises. Parents were oblivious to their children and at one point, one little boy asked if my wife would let him sit on her lap. She obliged of course and he said he was freaked out. Too much drama in 106 degree heat.
The Range Masters were great though except the one that kept coming up to me asking about the gun I was shooting...WHILE I was shooting. Not cool. The day wasn't a total loss though. We went to the clay shooting area and that was awesome. I've never seen a set up like that and it was really fun. It was pretty intimidating watching younger kids shoot SO well.
Thanks Uncle Sames Misguided Child, I'm going to take a peek at the BLM info. Maybe that is just a better option for me and my anxiety!! LOL
