Why is it that sometimes when you rapid fire your (insert weapon) at a range there is some stick in the mud who complains?You know the complaints:
1 It goes all over
2 All your doing is pissing ammo
3 All your doing is making noise
4 (this 1 I do agree with but the people(me) who can control it get b!tched too) Your shooting over the backstop
I mean really so long as you can control the rapid fire what is the problem? And while were are at it the we got people who like capacity restrictions. (I don`t like to shoot all my ammo in a mag or 2) and of course they have a Glock with 17 rd mags. Please somebody explain this to me

Probably because you may be making it hard for them to concentrate on what they are doing. I have a friend who likes to go rapid when I'm sighting-in, and it's irritating as all hell. I don't ask him to quit, I just wait for him to have to reload a magazine. It does give me time to let the barrel cool down between shots, though.

223- Umm, what kind of primma donna shooters are you running into? A little noise or brass should'nt affect where the shot goes..

The only time I ever saw people actually complain about anything like this was at a good sized MG shoot.. One guy had a H&K 51, that tossed brass well down the line, and with considerable velocity..He was very apologetic when this was pointed out..

If you change mags fast enough there will be no time for you to hear the complaints.

My range doesn't allow rapid fire.
