were you nervous that basically anyone can totally flip out and shoot you if they suddenly "had a mental"?
i had a short insruction thing and then BLAM was firing .22 in the range. moved up to a 9mm and a .45 and jesus they were powerful.
it felt weird suddenly holding something could kill someone. like... kinda scary. but the adrenaline was absolutely amazing, and the sound by god, it was loud.
I'm in The States over Chrimbo and I've found a reputable-looking range sandwiched between TWO (count 'em) pizza places. ohhh sayyy cannn youuuu seeeee.
Yes I fucking can, blud.
had done a fair bit of shooting.
shotguns here in the uk though. mate shot some sniper rifles and stuff but texas bans automatic rifles at ranges so we didn't get to fire them.
shot guns are full bore though obviously. Very good fun.
I've done a few assault rifles naturally, you should try it if you can!
I've been to loads in the UK and anyone could still flip out and shoot you if you wanted to. Heck, when I was at school I could have shot my best mate or my teacher if I wanted to. Obviously I didn't, but it's the same in any shooting range.
So the thought did cross your mind?
you would obviously never act upon it.
It's the same as thinking 'oh I can go in the kitchen and grab a knife and kill someone' you COULD do it, but you're obviously not a psycho and don't do it.
but it would be the same sort of deal with clay pigeon shoots over here wouldn't it?
I really really want to try both of those things, but I sort of have the reservations you mention. Hopefully the likelihood of that actually happening is less than that of dying in a plane crash.
Archery's where it's at.

ever since that old neighbours episode where Phils wife got shot on a duck hunt?
Fired an AK-47 and an MP5, it was pretty incredible. The MP5 was insanely accurate
I fired an Uzi. AN UZI. Best moment of my life probably.
