for what crime? If you carry your guns and ammo properly, then no issues. if you have a ccw permit, if less issue on how you stow your firarm.

i don't think cops are going to sit on a firearms range. come on. little different that them sitting on bars.( which i dont see a problem with them doing at all!)

I remember when they wanted to build the school by the reservoir. People said no because the kids would be drowning the teachers. Where do these people get these ideas????? I'll be home on the range. Bring it on.

You can't get a fair reading of the people in Van Wert that want a place for law abiding citizens to enjoy the second amendment. Not on topix anyway. A lot of the posters on here have a criminal record or have mental issues that prohibit them from owning any firearms so........ the gun laws that are already on the books ARE working. The police will be there, enjoying the range, just like the rest of us!

Kramers is pretty crowded. Good folks though. I've bought a few guns online from budsgunshop.com
All around a good experience.

BHS is also good. Most of the area stores sold so many guns over the past 2 months that their selection is really limited -- not to mention ammo.

Glad to know someone with sense teaching classes. That Davis that teaches them at the gun range near Middle Point is nuts. I heard he wants you "makes you" join the gun club and become an NRA member to take his class. Then you have to shoot 150 rounds through your gun.
There is a guy in Spencerville that has you shoot 50 rounds and you don't have to join any club or organization for $85.00.
I think I will check with the guy on Westwood Dr.

My sister took her CCW class out of Lima and only had to bring 50 rounds. A more laid back setting. I took my CCW at Kremers in Celina. We shot up 150 rounds. At the tail end of the range work we were doing shooting from behind a barricade, low light shooting, shooting in the dark with a stroble light flashing and loud noises, and shooting with lighting only from a flashlight. My instructor was a police instructor. I know some were "uncomfortable" with this style of instruction. Different classes are taught different ways and it doesn't hurt to ask what all is involved, especially with the range work.

I'm not against the shooting range. I'm inclined to think it's an overreaction to gun control attempts nationwide, but that's really about it. What I will say, however, from the perspective of having a mental illness is not pleasant. I think any psychiatrist should have the right to temporarily suspend gun rights for any patient who is in the process of changing medications, and should be legally held accountable for the actions of their patients if they fail to take such actions. The greater majority of mass killings should have targeted the cause instead of being used to take guns from people to defend themselves.

I myself avoided anti-depressants because of the dysphoric mania and suicide attempt it caused in my late teens. In adulthood, found myself in the same condition because of an anti-psychotic, Seroquel. I was also very unstable mentally when drinking, all of which was a common theme, Dopamine receptors. When I figured out that it was Seroquel that cause my mania, I refused it and was back to myself in just over a day, and released 2 days later, back in 2007. It's been almost a decade since I've drank a single drop of alcohol and almost 5 years since I've taken any medication for my condition.
