NSSF Video Emphasizes Safety at Indoor Ranges
Wednesday, March 9, 2011
NEWTOWN, Conn.-For new and inexperienced shooters, a trip to an indoor shooting range can be intimidating because no one wants to run afoul of range safety rules or showing courtesy to fellow target shooters.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, advises those target shooters to relax and watch its new video, "Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette." All shooters will better understand what's expected of them at indoor ranges after viewing the video and, as a result, will be more comfortable the next time they head to their favorite shooting facility.
"Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette" can be viewed on NSSF's You Tube channel. The eight-and-a-half-minute video covers the following:
Rules of gun safety
Eye and ear protection
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 hosted by Barry Laws, a member of NSSF's Association of Shooting Ranges Advisory Committee. He and his wife, Cynthia, own Open Range, the Crestwood, Ky.-indoor shooting facility where the video was filmed.
Shooting range managers interested in showing their customers an "Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette" can request a free DVD from NSSF by contacting Ann Siladi at email@example.com.
"Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette" is the latest addition to NSSF's fast-growing library of instructional and education videos for gun owners and shooting sports participants. A great way to keep up with new tips and insights provided by NSSF is with Pull The Trigger, a monthly newsletter with video segments.
