  1. the whole experience did sort of underscore everything i believe about that sort of thing though, there was a guy with an AR-15 in the booth next to me and a guy with eight(!!!!!) magazines on his belt in the other booth, and it made me SUPREMELY uncomfortable

    1. @mrmattimation That's about 250 rounds downrange assuming they're 30 round mags loaded to 28, it's not a lot for proper practice. Most people who take it seriously will do 200-300 once in a while. It doesn't cost too much if reloading the cases. Semi-auto rifles eat through ammo really fast so going to the range with only a mag or two means you'll run out of fun in minutes.

      1. @nerthos Nah the guy with the mag belt wasn’t using a rifle, it was a handgun, and by my count each magazine had between 15 and 18 shots.

        1. @mrmattimation Still normal amounts, this guy just put down the money to buy all the magazines instead of the usual two or three mags + a cardboard ammo box to reload. 1000 9mm rounds are like $150 over the counter, so the guy probably spent like 15 bucks in bullets if reloading.
