Since the cold weather season has begun, now is the time when most people hit the Shooting Range. Here is a review of Gun and Range Etiquette to freshen up before you hit the range this winter.
Before you pick up or accept a gun from someone, make sure you know how it works. Don’t be afraid to ask if you don’t know or can’t remember. When picking up a gun, check to see if it is loaded. Remember to handle the guns of others with care and respect.
1. Always pick up your spent cases and/or shells when you’re done shooting.
2. Always take down your targets when you’re done shooting.
3. Always straighten up your area before you leave.
4. Never eat or drink while shooting. After shooting always, wash your hands and face before you eat or drink. It is also a good idea to change your clothes as soon as possible and put them in the wash to avoid spreading powder residue.
