To whoemever is from Tri-County Gun Club who is "anybody"... I have a serious beef. First, I have been a member in good standing for the last few years. I enjoy the facilities and overall I'm quite happy with all of it. When I'm there I'm polite, courteous, considerate of others, I police my brass... in general, I leave the place better than when I found it on my departure. One of the BIGGEST COMPLAINTS about TCGC is the sometimes wacky-assed RSO's that prowl the place. Most are polite, helpful, and patient with the "less than adept" members, but I have to relay the actions of the RUDEST, MOST CONDESCENDING JACK-KNOB I have ever interacted with in ANY venue... and I've been around. On Wed. Feb 20th at approx. 2:30-3:00pm me and a guest (who is going to attend next month's new member orientation) were using the new (and most excellent) short-range pistol lanes. We had shot a few volleys into our targets, and the paper was getting torn into about 1" tails (we were shooting .45ACP FMJ) due to the backer board having about 8-10" holes shot out of each side. I looked around and found some intact backer boards to the right of the metal structures and got one out intending to replace the inadequate backer board. The existing backer board was hung on the frontside of the two mounting bolts (over the bolt heads) of the target trolley, but the moutning holes in new backer board were too small. I have never had to replace the backer boards on these new lanes, so we were using the existing board as an example, and while we were in the process of enlarging the holes in the new backer board the on-duty RSO (who, BTW looked like an unkept long-haired hippie) pulls up, gets out of his Ford van and proceeds to ask us in the snottiest voice, "just what do you think you're doing, and what's with the knife?" (that we were using to enlarge the holes). I told him we were changing out the backer board because the other one was shot out and our targets were tearing, and that we're enlarging the holes like the other backer board was when we got there. He looks at me like I said the dumbest thing he ever heard, looks at the still hanging original backer board and says very condescendingly, "NO, it's NOT shot out, and where did you get that?" (referring to the new backer board) I told him right around the corner where all the other ones are stacked. He then gets almost red-faced and yells, "that is a MAINTENANCE ONLY area, you don't go there!"... I looked at him and said, then you should put up a sign saying so, how is anyone supposed to know that, its right along side the shooting structure? He then just gives me a "Phhpppt", and grabs new new backer board from my guest's hands and stomps off with the backer board, puts it back and slams the metal conex door back open to cover the pile of backer boards and goes back to his van and sits there for about 5 minutes (or so). Now let me say, there was no safety violations whatsover, there was no infractions of any other club rules (I'm aware of) so this JACKASS had no right to even bother us, let alone treat us that way. I have ZERO negative financial impact on the facilities (I don't break, steal, or shoot up stuff), I leave an incredibly small footprint from my activities on the facilities, AND I'm a paying member, by defacto a PAYING CUSTOMER!! Am I not entitled to have my targets not tearing out in tails because they are stapled over 8-10" holes in the exisiting backer board? I sure AS HELL don't recall any rules in the newsletter, or anything on the list of posted rules on the wall that we aren't allowed to changeout the backer boards when needed. I'm giving you a word of advice TCGC executives\leaders, you better get your RSO cadre squared away and pulled up a notch or three. I don't go there to socialize, and BS... maybe teach them to learn if a member at a shooting bench is receptive to being interrupted while at the bench to BS. Save that crap for the clubhouse. Maybe also require they submit to a urin test for drug use as well. If they have a predjudice against the type of gun a member is shooting (black rifles maybe), or hates the fact a member drives a nice E-Class Mercedes because the RSO can't afford one... whatever... tough shiet! If I'm not breaking any club\safety rules leave me the HELL ALONE. You should do the math on the time and date above and see who that A-hole was, and let him know he ought to work on his manners, because he now has a couple of "capable" members that are now "laying in the weeds" for him... I'll gladly sacrifice my TCGC membership to cave his head in if he pulls that stunt again. I was totally gobsmacked... maybe he's one of the TCGC executive's socially retarded brother or cousin... or something?
