Intro To Shooting

As someone new to owning a firearm, there are many opportunities to get started shooting right away in safe and friendly environments. One of the first questions someone new to guns should ask is, “What will I use my gun for?” Shooting is fun and attractive to millions of people for various reasons. There are four main reasons people purchase a firearm: for recreation (to spend time with family and friends), competition, self-defense/training and hunting. It’s also common for these reasons to overlap, where some people like to participate in many shooting sports-related activities. The “Intro to Shooting” segment keeps it simple and offers easy and fun ways to get started with your firearm.
