That is crazy. I've shot there before, never paid attention to the rental system they have.

This is why I don't shoot at ranges. I know that this doesn't happen ALL the time, but I don't know when it will happen. Last thing I want is the guy in the lane next to me to get mad and shoot me then himself.

Weren't there 2 or 3 suicides at Target Sports in Royal Oak last year?

A friend of mine is part owner of a store/range down there and this is a major problem. They had some lady shoot herself a couple years ago. F'ed a lot of people up there that saw it.

Cheaper than buying your own gun I guess. That's pretty crazy.

Because it matters if you spent $1500 or $500 or $50 after your dead right?

That's crazy. I'm taking my cpl class there next weekend. Looks like a nice facility, which i would expect considering it took then forever to finally open it.

I don't get why someone would do this though, I get that your life sucks but why f others up on your way out?

There was one last year and that was the second or third time its happened there. The article I read said they were going to stop renting and may close the range to the general public.

Went in there once last fall and saw they were renting again. I asked them when they started renting again, I was told they never stopped and asked why I asked. Mentioned the article and that I saw it on a few forums. They got pissed and wanted to know exactly were I saw it and where the article was because "nothing like that ever happened here...ever!" I just said I was probably thinking of the wrong store.

Double checked the article and it was the right place....

no, that is to "far out, and technically advanced". I'm not a crusader of electronics, I'm a peasant that watches evening news. I also enjoy talking down on people who are tech savvy, it makes me feel better because I'm obviously out of touch.

It's cool to be me, I use all the techno gadgets in the world and talk down on those who don't bother with it. Having the latest and greatest makes me awesome, I don't know how anyone could survive with out it. It helps me compensate for my small penis and inferiority complex.

I'm surprised 0.9mm ammunition did the trick.

It sounds like somebody was butthurt there and trying to cover stuff up. I very clearly remember articles in both Crain's and the Detroit News or Free Press with the owner being interviewed for the piece. It's easy to remember because the owner of the place has the catchy name of Ray Jihad.

The woman, 28, from Waterford, allegedly went into the Accurate Gun Range, which is located in the 6500 block of Dixie Highway near Maple Drive, bought three boxes of 0.9-mm ammunition and began practicing on the range with a rented gun.
Did she rent a BB gun?
