Went to Big Boys this morning with a friend to shoot at 10 am. There was a wide strip of frozen over snow about 10 feet wide covering the entire front of the store. I had a knee replacement 3 weeks ago and it was extremely slick. When we went inside I mentioned it and some pink haired young fat girl said “nothing we can do about it, we don’t have any way to fix it”. We checked in and went to shoot.
As we were shooting, the same girl came out and reminded us that we couldn’t fire more than one round per second. Ok fine, I started counting one thousand one, one thousand two, etc as I was firing shots into a fist sized hole at 7 yards. After a while she came back out, obviously upset and told me I was still shooting too fast. I asked her if she had a timer and perhaps her time could be better spent clearing the driveway so customers didn’t slip and fall. She then told me to “pack my ****” and get out. I packed up and asked to see a manager. Some big old boy with a nose ring and I sat on the couch and had a nice polite discussion. I asked him if I should return to his range in the future. He told me things might be different next time, depending on who was range safety officer.I also asked him about the ice and he couldn’t or wouldn’t offer an explanation why it hadn’t been removed. Maybe I should have handled things differently but the list of places I spend my money grows smaller every day. Big Boys will never see me there again. Too bad really since it’s a nice range.

They'll learn to buy salt and fix the frozen after the first lawsuit I bet.
You would think so but I’m not so sure with the attitudes they had about it. I hope no one gets hurt before they take care of it. Obviously they didn’t have the parking lot cleared and have been waiting on the sun to take care of it. No wonder they are big old boys, seems pretty lazy to me. We were the only 2 range customers for a while this morning. They could have got hefty pink haired girl out there with a shovel. Of course that would require management actually take some initiative.

Man, you were cooler about it than I would've been................. Can't blame you for not going back given this experience.
