    I first heard about this group starting up a while back. When I read the article and found out where it was at, it made perfect sense. A black shooting club starting in an area that was predominantly black, and in an area with a lot of crime. Why not. It really only seemed a natural progression. Blacks tend to congregate with blacks, just as latinos tend to congregate with latinos and whites tend to congregate with whites. I don't really see it as a race thing at all.

    Realistically, any single woman showing up at a range usually gets looked at...this is news?

    That person's alleged personal experience. I've got her one statement vs. all the times I've seen and done the exact opposite. Yes, I'm at the range all the time, and I haven't seen anything like that but the exact opposite.

    I don't think he was calling bullshit on her "experience" as much as her assumption of what these "looks" meant. If she had said these things were SAID, I'd have no issue but she interprets looks to mean that. I believe that is what he does not agree with and I don't either.

    Got no problem with certain types having a group or banding together. I just don't like when it's on the basis of some kind of perceived racial divide, or allegation that another race doesn't care about you.

    Force of habit, I check out any woman. I like and appreciate the female form, my version of art, of course some are by Andy Warhol. Maybe she needs to realize her "Perspective" could be wrong. She thinks she's singled out because she's black and that's what she has been taught. Anyone see the problem there?

    There are so many people going to ranges that have no idea what they are doing.
    I always watch when new people walk in when I'm shooting.
    Lots of the time I step to the very back to keep an eye on them and make sure that they don't shoot me.

    Unless you live where she lives and go to the range that she goes to when she goes, your experience means nothing. You should respect her personal view on her experience at the range until you can prove different.
