When I analyze the phenomena, it really is negative.
1. You have no idea the KSAs of those around you
2. It costs a lot of money
3. You can’t train on any tactical skills
4. All you can do is shoot paper and hope some wannabe doesn’t blast you with their new “toy.”
5. And the places are full of NRA and police
There are numerous more reasons. But those are the main ones.
I may eventually go to a range again. Maybe.
I may never set foot in one again.
That is the most likely.
I prefer and greatly prefer being alone and outside.
I am not the only person who feels this way.
It is not hard to find those who share my thougts.
Indoor ranges are only as safe as the people in them.
And they offer virtually nothing for self defense training.
