So, Saturday took the family out to Lincoln City to Road's End Park. Decent weather day with lots of people. We did the long hike north down to the cliffs and rocks. When we got to the rocks, we all took cover as we heard BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, BOOM! I am thinking, what the HE$$? There are a few people around including a lady and her small child. Told everyone to keep down as the wind carried the smell of gunpowder toward us. A guy then pops up on a rock from the other side and I ask him which direction is he shooting as there are people around. He says that he is finished and was "testing" out his new 44mag. CCW to make sure it works and that he also got his CHL recently. I was like, umm, ok, I would like to bring my family over the rocks and is it safe now? He said yes, no one else over there and wishes me a nice day. He connects up with his wife and young child and they march off. Anyhow, I am thinking, wow this is really a dumb place to be shooting with rocks and people all over the place. I also looked up the laws and it appears discharging firearms on public beaches in Oregon is a no-no. If I knew this, I would have reminded him about this, however, I was not too interested in lecturing a guy who was armed (I was too, but with my P3AT "squirt gun") and just did an idiotic thing. Anyhow, I post to remind people that shooting on Oregon beaches is not a good idea and illegal too. Go to a range or BLM land before you kill someone! Thanks!
