I get that look everytime I show up at the range with rifle and cast bullets.  Smile

One time I showed up at my range on a public day, and set up on firing point #14. Vera Koo was there at the same time, set up on point #12. We each proceeded to do what we do.

The poor recreational public shooter on point #13 looked at the targets to the left and right of his and didn't know what hit him. We may have discouraged him slightly.

xfiring 5x's each on his blank target would have made him the great one amongst his peers!

Remember messing with people's minds once at a range in San Diego.  Was practicing for highpower, and saw a table at the other end of the range, where two gents and a lady were shooting a bolt action rifle from one of the benches (sandbag supports), think the target was set at 100 yards.  Feeling funny, loaded a 20 round mag (AR-15), and proceeded to slowly shoot 5 shots at a ~8" gong at 300 yards.  (Iron sights, shooting from prone.)  Once their attention was piqued, shot another 5 at a faster pace.  When they started getting closer to "who" was ringing the gong, proceeded to shoot 7 rounds in rapid fire. (Lots more hits than misses.)  Heard one of them say "it's the guy with the AR shooting".  Seemed they were pretty impressed.  
  lol!

You should see the looks I get when I show up and shoot my 1858 Remington.  25 yards or meters.  The Tactikewl Tommies look at me like I was a man from Mars.
