NSSF video emphasizes indoor shooting range safety
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.
