    No single shooters?

    On the weekend I was in Wild West and overheard that no single shooters are permitted. Is this true? Why?
    pandering to paranoia produces pointless prosecutions of people

    That doesnt sound right, unless they have changed things since I was there last. If you aren't a trusted member, they likely will supervise you but thats about it.

    Because single shooters make us married guys jealous, with all their extra ammo budget.

    The Wild West policy is the same as the rest of us commercial facilities:

    The policy is... no single unlicensed shooters.

    If you have a license, you can just go get your own gun.... we couldn't stop you....

    But since all of the Alberta ranges instituted this policy, our issues with mental illness has dropped.

    That's exactly the reason. It also has the side-benefit of promoting the sport when you get groups of two or more showing up, win/win. I guess the theory is that very few people will do themselves in when accompanied by a friend. Usually though, the rules state something to the effect of "No unaccompanied unlicensed shooters" considering that a licensed shooter would probably have their own firearm and would not have to go to a range for such a purpose. They've been vetted so don't require nearly as much in the way of supervision. Having been at a range myself when a 'rental suicide' happened I can't imagine how unnecessarily traumatizing it would be on the staff and other patrons (I was within 30' or so but didn't see anything aside from the rapid staff response due to being in the retail area).
