Guide to Shooting
Gun shooting looks easy and can be fun while using our targets, if used correctly. Bad habits are easy to develop, dangerous, and sometimes fatal. Please read all the rules and to safely get on your boom.
- Assume the gun is loaded. This includes loading, unloading, and cleaning.
- Only point guns at targets you intend to shoot.
- If you’re not sure you’re ready to shoot, keep your finger off the trigger.
- Use the correct ammunition.
- Make sure all equipment is compatible.
- Never shoot while impaired or under the influence.
Cover your eyes and ears. Eliminate possible lighting glare and protect yourself from dirt, wind, and other potentially harmful particles by wearing shooting glasses. Gunshots are loud enough to crack an eardrum and damage certain parts of the inner ear. Use earmuffs or earplugs to keep your head and ears from ringing.
If hiring an instructor, hire someone knowledgeable and trustworthy. Feeling comfortable with your teacher is critical. Uncomfortable feelings can lead to anxiety that can ultimately lead to breaches of gun safety and many mistakes. It should be vital for your instructor to provide constructive and positive feedback. You must also be open to advice.
Proper Grip and Stance
Proper grips and stance differ depending on the type of firearm you use. Investigate the weapons you want to use. Understanding the components and compartments can aid with the positioning of the hand and the foot.
Great practice makes it perfect. Get familiar with your weapon and set goals.
- Practice loading and unloading
- Practice shooting with both eyes
- Practice with different targets
- Practice in different environments safely
