I belong to a nice private range with 300 members - skeet range, 250 yard rifle, and pistol pit. Most members are probably in their 50's or older, with maybe 20-30% being younger. On the rifle range you will see a lot of bench rest guns, lever guns, bolt actions, and a muzzle loader here and there. I am fairly active in the club, attend all meetings, dinners, work days, etc. There seems to be growing tension between the older folk and 'those kids with black rifles.' A lot of sighs, dirty looks, and on rare occasion, a snarky comment when an AR or AK is pulled out of the rifle case. (I haven't seen this reaction to wooden stock M1A's or M1 Carbines.) There are no rules prohibiting rate of fire, type of gun used, or anything like that. You just can't shoot the soft steel silhouette targets with jacketed bullets. Why are other (more traditional?) shooters against black rifles? For the life of me, I can't figure it out. If you like shooting rifles, why wouldn't you embrace other rifle shooters regardless of their favored weapon? Please enlighten me! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
