My only experience at the local DOC range was a mixed bag, Dashunde.
For one thing, it only had one shooting area, with a 50 yard range. For another, the guy next to me departed, and left some targets up when he did, so I slid over one to use the leftovers.
This caused a couple guys who apparently had the same thought to become belligerent. I shrugged it off and told them they were welcome to them, but they continued to act like jerks, and then they left.
The other shooters were confused. None of us could see what the big deal was.
Shortly after that, I closed on a horse property. I have a 100 yard range in my west pasture. Friends are welcome to shoot at my place; we do not go to the DOC. My place is nicer, and jerks are not allowed.
