Without consistent practice, shooting is a skill that deteriorates over time.
Studies have shown that in as little as one week after leaving the range, the average shooter's skills will diminish by as much as 20%. In order to assist you, the shooter, we built the Laser Ammo Training Academy, which offers helpful drills and tips to shooters.
We are positive that you can benefit from practicing these drills whether you are a beginner, expert or professional shooter.
A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
