Potential Incident At The Range Today

I was at the range today, enjoying my time especially since I've had to taper back my range days to once per week instead of 3 or 4 days per week.

Anyhoo, I walk out of the range, and this guy is standing outside with his girlfriend waiting to go into the range. Walked by him and he was straight up glaring at me. Thought it was a fluke but when I got to my truck put my pack in the passenger seat then made my way around to the drivers seat, I look over and he had turned all the way around, and was straight up glaring at me. His girlfriend was petting his should and trying to get his attention. I swear to god I didn't do anything.

Don't let the name fool you, I look like a regular everyday person. I mean I'm 43, a bit chubby but that's it.

Never ran into this issue, and I have been shooting at ranges for 20 years. Anyone else dealt with someone who seemed to be looking for trouble? How did you handle it?

I considered asking him if everything is cool, but decided not to because I got the sense he would view it as a provocation.

I was wearing a "Make America Great Agin" hat. Wonder if that's what it was about...

Beretta, two choices...
1. File the incident under “W” and move on.
or
2. Challenge him and give him the satisfaction he got under your skin...

personally, tis better to smile, then turn around and walk away !

I tipped my hat to him and moved on. Not interested in playing stupid games.

It was surprising to me to run into that at the range. Never seen it personally at the range in all these years until now.

Mmmm MMM. Right.

Could be. Some people have this crazy notion that they have Freedom of Speech, but if you oppose them politically, somehow you don't have that right. It's really stupid.

In all, I think you took the best move- you walked away. I applaud you for that.

...apparently, liberals own guns too...
An example of how real life can be more terrifying than Hollyweird's creations.
