Isn’t shooting dangerous?
Yes. Anything can be dangerous if you aren’t careful, but if you follow protocol, you are more likely to be seriously injured driving to the range. Here are four things to always remember when around firearms.
- Treat all firearms as loaded, until you have personally inspected the firearm.
- Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction. (down range)
- Always keep your finger off the trigger and trigger guard until your sights are on the target and you are ready to shoot.
- Be sure of your target and what is around and beyond it. At ProShots, we have many instructors who can teach you the proper way to handle a firearm. Just as you would not drive a car without proper training, you should not handle firearms without proper training.
I have a fear of guns. How can I overcome it?
Sadly this is not uncommon, but we have amazing instructors that can help you through it. Like a fear of dogs, chainsaws, or knives, come from television, movies, stories, and personal trauma, so too can a fear of firearms be established. Maybe someone let you shoot a gun that was way too big for you, or you or a friend personally experienced a gun-related trauma. Call, or come see us, and tell your story. We are happy to say that we have helped a good number people overcome this fear, and some of our favorite regulars are a result.
can my Law Enforcement department use your range?
