I do not go to the range anymore because of all the pseudo manly men posing & walking around like they are Clint Eastwood on a movie set. The "hey sweetie"s made me want to use them as a target. But then I wouldn't be able to defend my country against the Russians. So I go to an outdoor range where there are mostly cops & they are respectful.
I'm with you on this. I don't see how this would help someone practice shooting to better enforce the law, ensure the security of a free state, or protect their self from a shooter. In fact the actual shooting of someone recording on a cell phone would diminish the security of a free state. It seems antithetical to me.
What type of members go to this range: Militia, atl-right, police? I'm thinking either the operator is appeasing or the members are requesting.
Agree any depiction of a human form is sick but made worst when the vital organs and biggest damage sections are highlighted: Brain, eye, nose, lungs, heart and spine. Wonder what kind of friendly contest one does with these?
Thats insane! Why would even I want to shoot at a human target. I am a gun owner and a very good shoot, there is a reason that shooting at the bulleye target works to improve your aim; those concentric rings allow you not only to tune in your sight but, also your aim and the windage. Beside being sick to be shooting at a person like someone would filming a cop, it is also a waste of effort.
So, this is offensive to you. Yet, you're at the range. Were you there to shoot? Maybe practice with a sidearm? It's just a target. Cardboard behind paper. I don't get the outrage. But then, I'm one of those conservative 2nd amendment guys. I shoot at various targets depending on the weapon and the type of shooting I'm doing. So, does this outrage you? It's paper.
For this to be an accepted human target it would have to be a human with a gun of some sort. It can never be a human with an object that is not going to hurt you. Military and police ranges have this sort of target choices when you go through their course. Shoot the one without the weapon and you fail and are out of there quickly.
