|For pistol/revolver...7 yards and 25 yards...|
Yeah, they used to have a 7 yd targets at our range...until a pilgrim got shot in his left leg, about 4 in. below the WORST PLACE.
A woman was shooting at the next position, and a ricochet from her metal target frame (a good 12" from the center of her target) hit the guy. He was thrashing around, and the range personnel had to almost hold him down, and whining; "I want to go home!"
I went to interview him, and thought his strange personality was the result of the pain killers he was taking. Nope: He was dumb as a box of rocks. Too bad it wasn't higher, it would have stopped him from polluting the gene pool.
What did the range do wrong? Nothing, but my boss was a career burocrat,
so he decided to reward the guy for his stupidity.
And that is how the 7 yard targets disappeared from our range one day.
