RSO forum?
#1
How about a private forum for us Range Safety Officers where we can compare notes, swap ideas, and vent secure in the knowledge that the numb-nuts that we deal with on a daily basis won't get to see what we have to say about them?

Terrible idea. I shoot on Sober Biker's range.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Maybe I'm in the minority, and I'm no RSO, but I think this would be beneficial to everyone.

That's about as honest, off the cuff range safety/behavior advice as you can get. You might make a list of do's and don'ts, but once you start listing off all the OTHER stuff that isn't in those lists, you offer up other behavior/habits that should also be addressed.

I can create an RSO forum but there is no way to make it private. I could make it password protected and RSO's would have to PM us for the password?? It would be to difficult to create a whole new membership group in order to make a forum hidden from the rest of the groups. Password would be the best way to do this...

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Why not just say what you have to say about them to their face? Why hide it?

Ha. We had a CRSO who tended to open conversations with "Hey, dickhead..."

The serious answer is professionalism and PR. RSOs are the "face" of a range and a lot of us try to be nice and be in education-mode in the face of incredible stupidity and ignorance.

On the other hand, sometimes you need to vent.

That'll work.

In that case I would also like to see a private forum for us Non-Range Safety Officers where we can compare notes, swap ideas, and vent secure in the knowledge that the numb-nuts that we deal with on a daily basis won't get to see what we have to say about them? Wink

What would be the criteria for access? NRA certified? Just curious.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Unless you tell anyone where you're a RSO, nobody will ever know.
