Tick has a real problem here, mostly starting with OLDER SHOOTERS, who have been around a while and don't like the way they preceive things going. USPSA rules are starting to be enforced, and it take "some of the fun" out of things for some people. Few, if any of his problem folks have taken a leadership role in the last five years or more, but kibitz from the sideline. Few would be a loss to the club, and new member retention would go up.
I saw this very thing happen a local match I went to last weekend. The MD was upset over shooters on a squad calling him over and pointing out that the entire stage was not legal and their were non legal targets. An argument ensued with another club member and people almost went home - after more shooters got involved it was calmed down and the parties parted ways and finished the match. It is imperative that we enforce USPSA rules for all the matches as much as we can in a reasonable way and when there is an argument, get as many people involved to talk it out first. If there is more problems, even with a match director, get them off the range for the day.

That earned him a lifetime ban from the club. It still didn't change his ways and he continued to think that the rules just didn't apply to him. Last I heard, he was banned from other clubs for flagrant safety violations.
