i have been wondering about this terminology too
i understand that cold range means no loaded guns except on the
i also understand that the term has various meanings depending on
what range you are at and how they interpret it
but my question is: (accepting that there are various interpretations)
what about your carry concealed weapon?
if i am shooting at a range alone, at what ever time of the day, i always
have in the back of my head the possibility that some one might
think that a solo person at a range might be a good opportunity to
get some "free" guns, if you know what i mean...even if i lock myself in
even if it is a cold range, i usually have my concealed piece ready
to go with one in the pipe....
it might be breaking the rules, but i really wouldnt want to get caught
i also realize that it could get me barred from the range, but i have
to weigh the risks and make my own choice....
if i am in the woods, the whole question becomes moot...
Now I don't know, but I been told it's hard to run with the weight of gold.
Other hand I have heard it said, it's just as hard with the weight of lead.
