“Isn’t it dangerous?”

Printer-friendly version

No it isn’t! Official statistics show that ballroom dancing and aero modelling cause more injuries than shooting. Shooting is one of the safest of all pastimes because it has to be. Target shooting can only take place on ranges that have been constructed to specifications laid down by the MOD, and which are regularly inspected for compliance. In addition, Club officials must hold officially recognised Range Conducting Officer qualifications if the Club is to shoot on MOD ranges. All shooting is strictly controlled to enforce the highest safety standards.
