Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Yep. Except for the little bitty deputy with the Napoleon complex, they were laid back...no range Nazi's.

If the RO's are civilians at this new venue, I fear the "Security Guard Syndrome"...
I've been going to the PBSO range for years, and I don't know which one is the "little bitty Napoleon." ???

I admit having the same concern about the new place. But, I'll try to remain optimistic!
Yea which one are you talking about??
I don't know his name. Short guy. Power tripping. Pissed off look on his face most of the time.

On the range? Or in the office? I have not encountered anyone like that in the last several years there.

On the range. He eventually came around, but my first impression was "power trip".

Hmm.... no idea. I've been going there for several years, and every single RSO has been super-nice. Some are more conversational than others. But, all of them have been great, in my experience. I'm going to miss that range.

I think the 1-hour time limit will be problematic. Most hot / cold ranges go cold every 20 - 30 minutes... for at least 10 minutes. That means you'll get to shoot two targets and then have to leave. That's not including set-up and break-down time.

Honestly, I was very excited about having this new range, which is close to where I live. But, if I'm limited to an hour, it's not worth going.

Also, one person per lane is an issue for those of us who bring our children and share a rifle.

Damn, I'm going to miss the PBSO range. :cry:

I agree, however this is only temporary due to the covid crap. Once all that goes away and the facility is open to full capacity it will be nice. I am also close by so plan on using the hell out of the range. Hopefully they have some sort of yearly membership.

When I went to a public meeting the FWC had about the range (several months ago, maybe a year ago), they specifically said they would NOT be offering memberships.

Given current economic conditions, hopefully that will change
