National Shooting Sports Month was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) to celebrate participation in target shooting — a safe, fun activity enjoyed by millions of Americans. Millions of Americans purchased their first firearm this year and now is the perfect time to give target shooting a try.
Experienced shooters celebrate National Shooting Sports Month by Inviting your friends and family to the range with you, encourage them to take their first shots. If you are interested in trying out the shooting sports but don’t have a mentor you can always give your local range a call and let them know you’re interested in learning about target shooting. Ranges provide safe, supervised introductions to newcomers all the time, and many offer leagues, clubs, date nights and other social activities you might be interested in joining.
Before heading to the range it is a good idea for experienced and novice shooters alike to watch NSSF’s Range Safety and Etiquette video. It’s a great introduction to safe firearms handling rules and what’s expected of customers at shooting facilities.
