Work must become eventful pretty quick for those that work at a gun range. Between those huge ear muff things, abstract paper men being shot at, and the DEADLY FIREARMS, shooting range security guards likely live with their head on a swivel.


But some dinguses will inevitably fall through the cracks.

u/ZeXaLGames asked, "Security guards at shooting ranges, whats the dumbest shit you have seen people do?"

That's One Way to be Sure

I legitimately watched an instructor show some guys he was training how to unload, and to be sure it was unloaded correctly, then to demonstrate it was unloaded, he picked it up and pointed it at one of the students.

No Deaths, Up Top

And another time some douchebag was shooting a .50 BMG bolt action and purposefully trying to shoot above the berm in an attempt to knock a tree down. He put 5 rounds into a building 2 miles away and laughed when the RSO was notified and asked him about it. Literally high fived his friend.

First Service.....PULL

I saw two guys throwing tennis balls into the air and trying to shoot them with large caliber rifles. They missed of course, god knows where the rounds went. They got kicked out when the guy throwing them ran into the firing range to retrieve them.

Trusting Fella

I once had the damn range safety officer tell me "i'm going to go change my targets, make sure you keep your shots away from the right side of the range"

Sorry, Had an Itch

Was walking through the clearing procedure for the M9 with one cadet, and as I was explaining, he uses the barrel of the pistol to push his safety glasses back up on his face.

Makes Your Aim Better

A guy, an ex cop mind you, is doing the El Presidente drill. You spin, draw your pistol, and then work your way down the targets. Instead, he draws his gun before spinning. So when he spins he sweeps the entire crowd of students with his gun.

Huge ​​'Terminator'​​ Fan

I watched someone load a shotgun and hold it with one hand, outward. I wasn't able to get to him in time before he shot it. Poor bastard

Didn't Think We Needed That On the Rule Board...

I once saw someone slap the teachers butt

Didn't Feel Like Taking His Gloves Off

My husband and I went to a shooting range and while my husband was shooting I saw a guy scratch the side of his head with the barrel of his gun and then continue shooting.

Maybe a Different Route Next Time

I notice some dirt tumbling down from the berm. Obviously I aim the rifle at what may have caused it. Just a middle aged woman walking her dog down the berm towards a couple of guys shooting. We obviously all called cold and dressed her down. She claimed ignorance that she had no idea that there was a gun club abutting her property. A gun club that shoots from sunrise-sunset every day but Christmas for the last 107 years.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
