Went to Mitchell last about a month ago and "mis-racked" the slide on my PPK.   Finally unjammed and then forgot how to slide the slide back on, lol.   all this stupidity had to take up at least five minutes.   no one came yet I am sure I was on camera.   I just picked up my 1911 and a .22 and fired them that day.   I don't go that often so it could not be I was recalled as a "responsible regular."   Sure I kept the damn thing downrange the whole time but was obviously having difficulty.   Several years ago the range police ran in to tell me I could not drink from a water bottle.   I have seen two cease fires, one called for by my cheap buddy who wanted to retrieve his 30.06 brass and the other by me when I lost the little plastic thingy on my Henry's magazine tube.  I have always just paid 3 bucks and change so to get chased at 59 minutes would be no big deal for me.  29 yards, adequate lighting and ventilation, Its the biggest reason I can not envision paying for a private membership anywhere.

Does it sound like it might be fun to try a buddy's gun? If so, it's not allowed in New York. Don't you understand how our laws work?


Fake news. Which CNN reporter are you?

Contact the head of NC pistol licensing, they say it is not allowed.
Thats why

Mitchell Field has many strict rules in place. A few people who are observant may notice the bullet holes.

The bullet hole in the locker on the wall opposite the range was always my favorite.

That's an interesting problem.  It's not proscribed in law.  That is well established.  It is not proscribed in the handbook, so in theory, it is not proscribed in regulation (at least in any regulation that can be enforced).

While a verbal opinion from anyone in NC pistol licensing (head or not) has no legal weight behind it for most of us here, it certainly can keep YOUR hands tied.  <sigh>

I only know of 2 places on Long Island that rent handguns, and they are both in Suffolk.

I agree, but they both in NYS. Since we have NYS pistol license, why would that preclude trying out someone else’s pistol? Other than Mitchell local rule. My point is that NYS must not have anything against a legal pistol licensee from using someone else’s gun.

There is nothing in NYS law, If you are in immediate area, another can use your handgun. it is easier to control people, which is what they do.
