Safety Is First At StrongHold Shooting Range


  I remember doing target firing back when I was still with the government. that was i think 1999, I got tagged along by a friend, we enjoyed it much that made her bought a gun. But just this last Thursday, i got to try firing again after so many years, and i couldn't be so thankful to our instructor Sir Mark, for the invaluable things he taught and imparted us. concise, intelligent and well presented techniques on the importance of handling a powerful tool like gun The four basic principles

To help ensure safe practices at home and on the range, make these gun handling principles your own, and they will become natural habits whenever you handle a firearm.

1. Treat every firearm as if it's loaded.
Even if you're absolutely certain a gun is unloaded, still follow these rules for safe gun handling.  You want these rules to be natural habits; holding yourself to them each and every time helps make them so.

2. Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.Accept the mindset to always keep your gun pointed in a direction that would safely stop the bullet should it discharge.  if you're not on the firing line, your gun should stay holstered muzzle-down, cased, or locked open and pointing down and away from people. If you're on the firing line, your gun should stay pointed downrange, at the bullet trap backstop at the end of the range.  If you will be cleaning or handling your unloaded gun at home, find a safe direction ahead of time -- bullets penetrate floors, ceiling, windows, and walls.  Masonry, a full bookcase, a full freezer, downward (if you're on the ground floor), or even a five gallon bucket of sand may be good options.
3. Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
You are responsible for the entire path of every bullet you fire from your gun.  If you hit your intended target, the bullet may still continue through.  to the intended range area; you are responsible for only aiming in directions where you can be assured the bullet will be safely stopped.

4. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire.
When you're holding a gun but not shooting, you'll hear us ask you to "index" your trigger finger.  This means to keep your trigger finger straight, and to raise it up to rest flat alongside the body of your gun.  Whenever you are not on target and ready to fire, your trigger finger should always be outside the trigger guard and resting straight and flat alongside the body of your gun of place,

And I got to learn that at Stronghand Shooting Range.  safety is always first. Not to mention its affordability,  professional and friendly staff, the cleanliness, family-friendly  toxic free (no airborne lead, sulfur dioxide, barium oxide and antimony oxide poisoning!) of the place, You and friends can also relax at their  Kiss Kiss Bang Bang cafe, and chose from variety of good and healthy food.
   So if you're looking to try target shooting , this is one place you should go. A lot of well known people go here too, for this.
