Taking a trip to the gun range is a great way to hone your shooting skills in a safe environment. However, if you’ve never visited a gun range before, you might have some questions about what to expect from the experience. It helps to have some preparation beforehand, so here are some tips for what to do before visiting a gun range.
- Learn the appropriate terminology. Downrange, firing line, and backstop are just a few of the terms you might hear while at a gun range. While there will be someone there to teach you more about these terms if you have any questions, it helps to have some background information about what the various terms mean, so be sure to check out common gun range terms before your visit.
- Bring the necessary safety equipment. Guns are powerful, so it’s important to make sure you have all of the necessary safety equipment for your shooting session. Safety glasses and ear plugs are must-haves, but be sure to check out various recommendations for what else you should bring.
- Be sure to check out the rules of the range. Every gun range has its own individual rules to follow when firing. Being aware of the rules you need to follow will make it easier to remember and follow them all, so check them out beforehand.
