I went up to the public range in the Ocala National Forest this morning and was suprised to find it full. I had never been there before and did not know what to expect. First it only has about 10 stations for rifle and pistol. Kind of small. While watching and waiting for a couple of stations to open someone called for a cold range. Everyone put their weapons down and then it got interesting. A couple of the guys that was shooting decided to tinker with and around their weapons while everyone else was picking up brass and going downrange to tend to their targets. that is when I made up my mind I did not need to shoot where people don't know how to follow basic range rules. this one guy had a loaded pistol strapped to his hip the entire time while messing with his rifle. I guess the rules mean nothing to some people. to me a cold line means do not approch your weapon , should be unloaded, open and pointed down range. No loaded weapons on the line during a cold line call. I guess I will have to find another place to shoot my rifle. So far the time being it's back to shooting pistols at the indoor range. Just a reminder, Please be sure to follow basic range rules no matter where you shoot.
