Do ranges you guys go to have rules set in place to keep this sort of thing from happening?
All guns do NOT get uncased until you are on the firing line. We have tables set up at each shooting bay that is placed within the shooting berms. All long guns that are not cased MUST have a chamber flag in them to be carried any where on the range and to and from your vehicle.
Our range is also a COLD range and is outdoors.

Here in MA we have mandatory training. Plus towns get to add their own training requirements on top of the state's mandatory training requirement (this worked out to over 24 hours for me). I used to shoot at S&W's range, which makes you watch a safety video as well. None of this stopped some guy several lanes down from me dancing his laser all over me. I noticed it when I saw it on my arm. He was not doing intentionally.... just an idiot, who was not new to firearms!

All I can say is "be smart, and be aware".

Go to a "card-lock" indoor range in Milwaukie, Oregon. After shooting I go to the lobby to disassemble and clean my XD's. Carpet mats are provided by the range to protect the tables. Seems everyone I've seen here knows their stuff or is properly supervised. It's nice to just sit, clean and talk shooting with others. Hope it continues....

This will probably continue until someone has an ND. Not sure how many people frequent the range, or utilize the cleaning area per day, but statistically speaking, at some point, it will happen.
