I joined the local gun club recently. There is an outdoor range and indoor range. I had my orientation to the outdoor, but needed to attend a monthly meeting to be approved for indoor, which costs more. I paid my money and sat quietly during the meeting and listened. It seemed like a bunch of older men thriving on strife and arguments. There was finger pointing (literally) and raised voices. There was an argument when one guy said that people should not be able to empty entire magazines rapidly. He said no one can hit the target every time when emptying that quickly. He finally relented that maybe 2% of the shooters. There was lots of arguing about holes in the ceiling being repaired only to find more the next day. I belong to other clubs but I have never seen that much arguing in a meeting. A physician friend of mine suggested I join and pay the extra for the indoor range. After meeting these guys I know these bitter old men arent his cup of tea either. Just a place to shoot. Makes sense to me why there are over 300 members and 10 showed up for the meeting.
