    Totally agree. I just go there and my daughter can (legally) shoot my pistols.

      There is occasionally some dumb stuff at Calverton, but less so if you go when it's not busy and if you are selective about the position you take. It's also important to be aware of what the people around you are doing at any range, and to call them out on it if necessary. Both of those things are good things to teach, but obviously not to kids just starting out. Remember too that Calverton is open rain or shine.

      The outdoor Islip range is nice, but it has a VERY limited schedule.

You may have to bring large sheets of corrugated cardboard since the stakes may have zero backing, but if you get there early enough, you will not have to worry about anyone on the right. (Of course this does take some of the fun out of being there.)
        I've found too that other people "to the right" generally have a more safety-minded mindset.

          Perhaps, or is it just too hard over there on the right to do something really STUPID or to be seen doing something really STUPID ?
