How To Plan For A Safe Trip To The Range
Always Keep the Muzzle Pointed in a Safe Direction:
Simply put: Never point a gun at anything you don’t intend to shoot—even when dry firing.
Keep Firearms Unloaded When Not in Use:
Never load a gun until you are ready to shoot. When not in use, store firearms and ammo separately.
Don’t Rely on a Gun’s Safety:
Treat every gun as though it can fire at any time. Safeties are mechanical devices that can become inoperable without your knowing.
Be Sure of Your Target and What’s Beyond It:
No target is so important that you can’t take the time before pulling the trigger to be certain of where your shot will stop.
Use the Correct Ammunition:
Using improper or incorrect ammunition can destroy a gun and cause serious personal injury. Always double-check your ammo.
If the Gun Fails to Fire, Handle with Care:
If nothing happens when you pull the trigger, keep the muzzle pointed downrange, unload the gun, and dispose of the faulty cartridge.
Always Wear Eye and Ear Protection:
Exposure to a firearm’s report can damage hearing; adequate vision protection is essential at all times while shooting.
Be Sure the Barrel is Clear of Obstructions:
Before loading a firearm, open the action, check that there’s no ammo in the chamber or magazine, and make sure the barrel is clear.
Don’t Alter or Modify a Gun, and Service Regularly:
Any alteration or change made to a firearm after manufacture can make the gun dangerous. Also, follow the manufacturer’s service recommendations.
Learn the Mechanical and Handling Characteristics of the Gun:
Every firearm is different. Never handle a gun without first familiarizing yourself with it and the way it works.
How to
Celebrate The Moment
Celebrate the little things and reinforce small victories to keep your +ONE coming back for more.
Range Day
Safety is everyone's responsibility and must be paramount, especially when introducing someone new to the shooting sports.
Proper Gun Fit
Making sure your new shooter is comfortable will go a long way to making a fun and enjoyable day at the range.
Getting Youth Involved
Keep it fun. It's not a test. It's about being safe, learning and having a good time.

10 Commandments of Firearm Safety:
Bring a copy with you, and review even before the gun is uncased.
Eye & Ear Protection:
Safety first. Plus, eye and ear protection make great welcoming gifts to the shooting sports.
Reaction Targets:
Punching paper’s fine, but spinners, gongs, and chalk disks are a lot more fun.
This may be a no-brainer, but always bring more than you think you’ll need.
Positive Attitude:
Be encouraging, be patient, and above all, make the experience fun.

+ONE for Industry Partners

Thank you for your interest in helping NSSF make 2019 “the year of the +ONE Movement” and growing participation in hunting and the shooting sports like never before. This year, we’re asking you to help us challenge every hunter and target shooter in America to take someone new. Imagine if everyone did this: we’d double participation in a year! Or even if just 1 in 3 did it. The impact can be huge. We just need your help in challenging everyone out there to take part. Together, by amplifying this simple message to the masses, we can make a difference. We’ve assembled a Toolkit that includes an activation guide, logos, images and more to help you get the word out.
