Military personnel, law enforcement officers, and armed security guards practice frequently on the shooting range among other places to ensure they have acute accuracy, better responses and developed skills when the time comes for firing their guns in real time. People who shoot firearms recreationally utilize time at the firing range to sharpen their skills and become better marksman for competitions and hunting exploits. The same should be said for those who choose to have a concealed weapons permit.
Shooting Range Industries take the time to help concealed weapon carriers understand the importance of being well familiar with your firearm.
For those who qualify; you are exercising your constitutional right to have a concealed weapons permit. We hope you never have cause to use it, but if you do, for the safety of yourself and innocent bystanders and any potential victims; it is prudent you know how to use that gun. If you are a beginner to handling guns, it might be beneficial to take at least a beginner class from an expert on the basics of a gun, safety regulations, understanding the law concerning your weapon, and maybe extra classes on firing your gun.
Safety is number one, remember these basic rules at all times;
• Gun is ALWAYS loaded, even if it is not loaded, always assume it is. Many accidental shootings leading to injury or fatalities are done by those who were certain the gun was unloaded. Treat every gun as if it’s loaded at ALL times.
• Never place the muzzle in alignment of anything you are not willing to shoot.
• Keep the finger off the trigger until you are 100% ready to fire.
• Know what is beyond your target.
