NSSF video emphasizes indoor shooting range safety

March 8, 2011 | 11:44 am

The National Shooting Sports Foundation recently posted the above video, "Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette," on its YouTube channel.

The 8 1/2-minute video covers the following aspects of shooting range safety:
•    Rules of gun safety
•    Eye and ear protection
•    Range rules
•    Role of the range officer
•    What to do when you get to the firing line
•    Making your handgun safe
•    Cease fire -- who can call it, what it means and how you should respond
•    Range courtesy, common sense and etiquette

The video is useful to new and inexperienced shooters -- so they can better understand what's expected of them at indoor ranges -- and is also a handy refresher to those familiar with the rules and etiquette.

As a novice shooter, I plan on giving this video at least a couple of views before heading to the range this weekend.
