Let’s move past the lack of a proper backstop and the rather reckless way the guy with an AK fired off the last round before he disappeared camera left. What made me legitimately scared for the lives of the people in this video was when the guy with the AK started firing, unaimed, into the ground directly in front of the guy on the firing line. Like, three feet away from where he was sitting. While the shooter was yards behind the firing line.
Some people may say we’re a little overly sensitive about the application of the Four Rules around here. And in some cases, they may be right. But if one of my friends started firing a gun while they were yards behind the established firing line, not only would I immediately kick them off the range and never talk to them again, but I would very seriously consider whether that constituted a valid situation for a DGU (defensive gun use) on my part. There’s a reason I always carry concealed on the firing line . . . [h/t Reddit]
