I'm shooting, and a gentleman from a few lanes over walks up and asks me a dozen or so questions about my rifle (AR15).

I answer them all, then he asks if he can take pictures of it.

I told him sure, but it came off as a little weird.

Maybe when he said "it" he meant he wanted to meet you in the men's room?

Shit! Didn't even think about that possibility!

My dog is a 16 year old pomeranian - luckily he will be easy to hide.

But then I told him how tax stamps work.

You should probably shoot him now to spare the ATF the bullet.

Not sure how I'd handle that.  Probably say ok because I don't think it would be worth starting a whole big thing over but it's definitely weird and I'd probably go out of my way to avoid that guy from now on.

He probably told his friends you let him put 20 rounds through it.  No big deal.  Carry on, I say...

Exactly.  Only times I've shared a range with anyone I didn't know well was at machine gun shoots.

He himself didn't come off as a weirdo or anything.

I just have never been asked to take pictures before, which struck me as a little strange.



ETA: On second thought, a while ago I heard a ~14 year old at the range with his dad shooting shotguns talking about how cool my SBR w/ can looked (electronic earpro ftw).

I went over and told him he could shoot it if his dad said it was okay. His dad told him to go for it and asked if I minded if he took some pictures of his son shooting it, which of course was no big deal.

The kid gave me some hope for future generations. I gave him a quick rundown of the controls and handed him a mag. He did everything perfectly, and when done shooting dropped the mag, put it on safe, and set the rifle down in a safe direction. I was impressed. Kid was beaming ear to ear.

Dad said something like "well I guess I know what he's going to ask for for Christmas" lol

That was probably one of my favorite days at the range.

That's cool, you made that kids month I'm sure.

If I'm shooting something at the range and somebody asked about it, I usually offer them to test it. Unless they seem weird

Yesterday I was shooting my new RPR and had people sweating it. But at $1.50 around I'm not sharing

Whenever I have had any of my NFA goodies at a public range, I always seem to draw a bit of a crowd and a lot of questions.

The funny thing though, of all my SBR's and suppressors, you know which gun seems to get the most "attention".

My silly little Serbu Super Shorty.

There must be over a 100 or so pics of folks shooting that damn thing.

OP has dicks all over his rifle.

I would take pictures just to show my buddies.

Not to mention no dust cover or FA.
