    I was wondering if anyone else has a story like this?

    I was at a club one Sunday sitting at a picnic table getting shooting tips from seasoned shooters when up pulls a very high priced foreign car with blacked out tinted windows. The conversation immediately went silent and we waited to see who and or what was going to get out. The next thing we knew a guy gets out and he's smoking the biggest cigar I've ever seen! I thought it was a damn novelty cigar! Get this: THE GUY IS DRESSED IN BLAZE ORANGE from his hat to his deck shoes! The smart a$$ in our crowd says "what the f@#k is that"? He walks over to the table with his shotgun in a gun sock (an 870 field grade) and says "somebody needs to pave that road". I guess that was to break the ice. somebody told him what a nice "colorful" outfit he had on, and he said simply "Safety First"! Well he was a nice enough guy, and nobody gave him a hard time though there was a shooters wife that kept taking pictures of him when he wasn't looking.

    I sometimes wear a bright orange or day glow green shirt when training on the range. I had not thought of matching pants.

    The green outfit might work on the Skeet field. LOL

    Nobody even bats an eye when we show up in camo anymore.

    If the idea is safety wouldn't you want to pick a color other than that of the target being shot at?

    Blitzer. I hate to admit this but I bought a bright PINK wind breaker jacket and pants one time just to wear it to the 16 yard line at an ATA shoot in Green Bay. I figured it should be good for a couple of birds as I had a large bet with one of my squad mates. Sorry to say it didn't work. I myself was laughing so hard I missed the first two birds. It was good for a few laughs though. I immediately gave it to a skeeter when done. lol Bill
