At the range I frequent that will get you sent home promptly. They are quite aggressive about sweeping the line.One of my other pet peeves is the once a year hunter sight in crowd shooters, who have a nasty habit of opening their hard side rifle cases while it lies sideways on the bench. Which means its muzzle is pointing at someone on the line. I have barked at more than a few guys for that. It's something most don't even think about. In their mind the rifle is not loaded so no danger right? In my mind no gun is not loaded, they all are.
I feel a lot of respect towards a fellow hunter who displays good gun etiquette.
One thing I thought about when I was in South Africa was the temptation to handle the gun like I had seen them do (over the shoulder carry etc.) But I think it's best to stick strictly to the habits I developed at home. I hated crawling, and we seemed to do a lot of that. I found handling my gun safely was a huge challenge in a crawl. I never did feel comfortable with it.
