Going to a shooting range for the first time might be confusing, and even downright intimidating for first timers. So, here are a few range tips every beginner should know before handling a weapon.
1.Treat every weapon as if it were loaded. (Keep it pointed in a safe direction at all times.)
2. Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot. (It might be loaded, even if you think it isn’t.)
3. Keep finger straight and off the trigger, until you are ready to fire. (This is the best way to prevent a negligent discharge.)
4. Keep weapon on safe until you intend to fire. (Again, this prevents a negligent discharge)
