Indoor shooting ranges provide a year-round place for practicing shooting skills. Whether you go occasionally or regularly, these tips will help you maximize your practice time at an indoor range.
Indoor shooting ranges are fun places to try new firearms, and they always have protective gear available for rent.

Also, make sure to use their protective gear if you don’t bring your own.
When it’s time for serious practice, though, bring your own firearms and eye protection. You need to be familiar with your own firearms’ grips, triggers, and sights, as these are the guns that you’ll be using in the real world.

When you’re finished or need a break, ask the best shots at the indoor range for some tips. You can ask about a specific technique someone is using, or even have them watch you and give suggestions. Most people will gladly share their enthusiasm and knowledge with others at the range.
