When you are thinking to participate to a shooting range, you should have a clear mind. This means that you should not be under alcohol influence or under any forbidden substance, such as drugs of any kind. You shouldn’t ever hold a gun into your hands when you are not in a proper state of mind. It is as dangerous as driving in similar conditions.
Do not talk
During a shooting range there should not be any type of conversations. The only discussions you should make are with your shooting instructor. You should not bother anyone either. when someone holds a gun needs to be focused in what he or she is about to do. You do not want unwanted accidents to happen. Another important thing that you should not do is to never touch someone’s weapon. You should mind your own business.
Watch your shooting direction
When you are about to shoot your gun, you must make sure that you have targeted in the right direction. You should avoid shooting towards the target frame or towards other rough parts of the target that might change the direction of the bullet. Even if you might be tempted, you should never shoot in other targets but your own.
Follow the rules
When you are at a shooting range session, you might not be alone. This means that you should not disturb the other participants. When I say that I am referring to the rapid fire sessions. Other participants could become stressed by the noise. You should practice such shooting sessions only when everyone else does or when you are on your own. If you are beginner you should not try such type of shooting range until you will not gather enough experience in this field.
This is a very important rule. If you do not understand something you should ask. It is important to follow the rules but it is much more important to ask if you do not understand something. This way you will avoid doing any type of unwanted mistakes. If you did not know by now when you practice such activities you should not do too many mistakes because they might turned out being quite dangerous.
If you will ever hear your shooting instructor yelling to ceasefire you should do it immediately and put your gun down in a safe position and leave the shooting line after you made sure that there is no ammo in your gun. You can restart your session only after the instructor will allow it.
As I said before, usually you will not be the only shooter waiting for his turn. This means that you should not overcome the allocated time for your session. If you did not paid for a private lesson, you should respect the others when it comes about their time. Beside time, you should respect other things as well. You should clan after yourself. This means that you should collect all your cases and bullet shells along with the targets you used. This way you will leave the shooting area, as it was never used so the next person who will come after you will not waist anytime cleaning after you.
You shout clean just the area you used, but you should also clean yourself. your face and your hands might have gunpowder on them even if you will not see it. This means that you should wash your hands and face so you will not contaminate your food and clothing items.
The main rules that you should remember is to point your gun towards your target only. You should not keep your finger on the trigger unless you are not ready to shoot. You do not want to shoot anyone by accident. If you are not ready to soot you should not have your gun loaded either. Before starting to shoot, you should know exactly what is your target and where is it.
These rules should never be forgotten by anyone no matter their experience in this field. Safety is the main word when it comes guns and shooting ranges.
My name is Aura and I am a very active woman. I like being like that because I consider that I have many things to learn from this life.
The main reason why I started to write, was to increase my income. In time I realized that this was not my real goal. I wanted to prove to me, that I have the ability to communicate through writing with people around the world.
I like the idea of sharing my knowledge and experiences with other people even if sometimes they may not agree with me. This is maybe the most important thing in this job. You must allow other people to come with their own ideas backed up by solid arguments.
Another thing, that made me fall in love with writing, was the fact that I can do, even if I do it in my spare time, something I really wanted to do my entire life. Expressing myself through writing gives me the freedom that I can’ t find when I am at my daily workplace.
With all these things being said, I hope you will find my articles interesting and useful.
