Supervised ranges Many enthusiasts feel the safest when they do their shooting at a place under the strict supervision of one or multiple range officers as designated by the gun club, range owner or gun shop. The range officer supervises behaviors of all the shooters. The officer can also intervene if there is a requirement to correct any kind of safety violation.

  1. All guns are always loaded. (Treat them so!)
  2. Never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target (and you have made the decision to shoot).
  4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
