I was reminded of this true story the other night, and I'd thought I'd share it again. All completely 100% true.
Shortly after my divorce, I went to the indoor pistol range for some practice. I got one of those black siloquette targets like usual. Feeling kinda bored, I thought I would mark up the target a bit with a black marker I carry in my bag.
I drew some stringly long hair on it, and adding some cartoon-like balloon comments like "I want a divorce", "I'm going to take all your money", and "My lawyer will destroy you". Clipped the target to the pulley and sent it downrange at 10 yards.
Loaded up a clip and tool delight in sending some lead towards it. When I went to put another clip in, I got a tap on my shoulder. It was the range officer. He said, "I'm sorry sir, but I will have to ask you to take that target down".
I looked around and saw there were a couple of women shooters. Thinking that there must have been some complaints, I said "Sure, I'm sorry - didn't mean to offend anyone".
To which he replied, "No sir, no offense - it's just that we noticed a lot of cross-lane shooting going on". When I pulled the target down, there was about 25-30 holes in it - and I had only fired one 15-round clip.
As I said, true story.
