Sit here and cruise ar15.com with my new toy in my lap(Bushy xm-15e2s)?
my newest edition to the family. Can't wait till monday. A friend and I are going shooting and I am gonna bust her cherry. I am so excited I may have to go out to Cherry Creek range tomorrow even if the range idiots will only let me shoot the 50yrd line cause I don't have optics.

Possibly, I do it all the time.  Right now I have my Springfield "Loaded" 1911 on my desk.  Usually my 20" AR15 is right next to me in the corner.  My wife has told me before that I look at my firearms with the same loving look in my eyes that she used to get when we first met!!

Yeah, I've had mixed results at the Cherry Creek range.  
Was there last weekend sighting in a new Model Seven, and one range master, upon seeing my AR, immediately gave me a lesson in the proper way to employ the carpet-covered brass blockers.  He also asked that I sit far forward on the bench so that my muzzle break would be outside the window.  Friendly, but a little condescending.  
I worked on the new scope, and decided to shoot the AR while the barrel of the M7 cooled.  Not very fond of the diamond-shaped targets with the irons, and asked a different range master if I could shoot a different target with a circular bullseye.  Yes, the fee pays for only one rifle target, but this had been acceptable in the past.  The second range master insisted that I shoot the AR at 50 yards.  Not exactly what I was looking for after making the drive from Boulder.  
I think that if you go to the range with an (iron sight only) AR during the typical pre-hunting season sight-in days, you will have little chance to shoot at the 100 line on a busy day.  Now's not that time, so this ought not be an issue.
At other times, there has been no problem for me, so I guess that your chances of shooting at the 100 yard line depend on the amount of traffic and the individual range guy.  I know, this is a little irritating.  In the worst case, set up at 50, demonstrate that you can keep the shots in the middle, and then ask to move.  It's your $.
Maybe we'll get some precipitation tomorrow, and the guys will let you sit beneath the roof.

If its a shorty with a break,you'd better wear some protection or it will be your cherry that gets broken.

 And yes if you are here, there is a good chance you are one or will be one.

Those are 2'x2' 1/2" thick interlocking floor mats I got at Home Depot. They're 15$ for a pack of four and they feel much better on the feets than concrete. They also come in multicolor for the kiddies. I use my table saw as a work/gun bench (when I'm not ripping wood) so that's where I stand a lot. I also work out in there-that's why I have so much of it. Here's a better shot of what it looks like:

Bigt,
Are they thick and heavy enough for weights sitting on them all the time? The indoor outdoor carpet in my garage is shot and I need a replacement.
Link Posted: 6/2/2002 8:28:50 AM EDT
Anything heavy you put on them is gonna leave an impression. If you look at the leftmost mat on the bottom edge you'll see a circle. That mat used to be under one foot of my bowflex. I keep loose weights on the concrete floor. However, if I had a stationary dumbbell rack or plate rack, I think it would be fine on the mat.
