i occasionally shoot at a public range located about 2 miles inside of a wildlife management area. my awareness is on full alert at all times, as i am there by myself and folks may be in and out during my range sessions. everyone is cordial--but who knows--i choose not to be a target of opportunity. fortunately, i can back my car up close to the station and can lock my stuff up while down range. i also carry my 1911 cocked and locked--i ain't stupid.
