I went to the range today to continue breaking in my new 45 and as I'm signing the paperwork to use the range, a young woman walks in and asks the owner what she needed to do to fire her weapon. She then pulls it out of her purse, I saw no holster, drops it on the glass show case, barrel pointed right at him. He kept his cool and grabs the gun before something happened. Dead silence from the 4-5 of us there. Then she reaches back into her bag and pulls out 20 or so loose 9mm rounds and asks him how to load the gun. Holy smokes. I figure he is never gonna turn her loose in the range. Boy was I wrong. I'm inside shooting and the next thing I know, she is two stalls away from me. One of the employees decided to help her with her learning curve and that made me feel better. After hearing him say "Take your finger off the trigger!" 5-6 times, I decided it was time to go. She kept turning my way with the gun pointed near me rather than down range and more than once he physically pushed the gun back towards something not alive. I suggested they practice some dry firing, hoping it would buy me some time. I understand that everyone needs to learn how to use their new gun safely but this was just plain scary. She had no permit and was just keeping the gun in her home. No training ever, before today. I was going to say something to the owner but decided that he was already doing more than most. He offered his employee at no added cost to teach her some of the basics. He knew my time was cut short because of this and he didn't charge me for the visit.
