Shooting Range Therapy; Reasons to Go a Gun Range
1) Reliance: Having confidence in abilities promotes many character facets. Those that responsibly own a gun, and choose to carry, need to continually build their skills and talents in order to ensure the safety of others. As you continue to grow, your confidence reflects your abilities, giving the courage and determination to intervene in situations that may or may not require wielding a firearm.
2) Stress relief: When participating in your shooting activities on the range, adrenaline spikes is a normal reaction. Proven to diminish the burden of stress, the adrenaline rushes are good for the body. Not only will they help subdue stress, but the adrenaline also enhances blood, helping the liver break down glycogen that feeds the muscles, offering more fuel for the body.
3) Posture and balance: Shooting ranges encourage shooters, no matter their experience levels to take slow, controlled, aim and follow through during shooting drills and exercises. As a result, the core muscles are being used and they promote better posture and improved balancing. For proper growth while you practice shooting, the improvement on proper posture pinpoints the abdominal muscles that can often correct the chronic back pain caused by lower back pressure from poor posture. Balance allows for more coordination as well.

There are many traits that will naturally build spending time on the range, such as hand-eye coordination, stamina growth, fine motor skills, and strength just from the drills and shooting exercises common on the range. For example, keeping your weapon steady for proper aiming and repeated drawing from holster to target alone will naturally build the arm strength. The eye sight and hand-to-eye coordination being exercised as you focus down range on your target and surrounding areas.

5) Mental development: Most experienced firearm shooters agree that shooting activities consist of 90% mental. When dealing in situations that require firing your weapon, the brain evolves and sharpens many aspects such as mathematics, logistics, and a creative thinking demand, along with deeper concentration, and problem-solving skills. Using your preferred hobby can significantly improve your mental development.
