Gun Range Do’s and Don’ts

Gun Range Do’s and Don’ts

Whether this is your first time at the shooting range, or you’re a seasoned gun range visitor, there is a certain etiquette that comes with the territory. No matter what kind of gun you carry, you need to follow the rules. This list of gun range do’s and don’ts will be something you want to keep handy every time you find yourself at the shooting range.

The Do’s

  • DO make sure that you are very familiar with your gun before you discharge even one bullet. Failing to be familiar with your weapon can lead to serious injury, and even death, at the shooting range.
  • DO keep your finger away from the trigger and keep the safety on when you’re not in the firing bay of the gun range.
  • DO be aware of all your surroundings. Familiarize yourself with both your target and the actual surroundings of the shooting range before you discharge your weapon.
  • DO wear your necessary eye and ear protection in the shooting range. You may not realize it right now, but guns are LOUD. There is also a lot of residual debris that gets discharged from the gun along with the bullet. However small it is, you don’t want it getting in your eyes.
  • DO clean up after yourself when you’re done inside the shooting range. It’s not always required to do so, but a little common courtesy goes a long way in building camaraderie among your fellow shooters.

The Don’ts

  • DON’T come to the gun range with a loaded gun It’s best to come with an empty weapon and load it up in the firing bay to prevent accidental discharge.
  • DON’T side slide. In other words, when you’re reloading your weapon, don’t point the barrel to either side of you. You could accidentally fire the weapon towards your unsuspecting neighbor.
  • DON’T show up to the range under the influence. Consumption of drugs, alcohol, and prescription pills should be avoided before you visit a range. You want to be in possession of all your faculties at all times while you are on the range’s property.
  • DON’T shoot at anything you can’t see. Remember: your bullet can travel far and fast. Even if you don’t mean to, you could seriously hurt or kill someone or something you didn’t intend to shoot at the gun range.
  • DON’T hand off a gun to another shooter. If you’re shooting with a partner, put the gun down and have him/her pick it up.

Here at Big Woods Goods, we take pride in being both an expert in firearms and an expert in firearm safety, especially in a contained environment such as a shooting range. Do you have any questions about gun range etiquette that haven’t been answered here? Contact us!

How To Clean A Gun

If you own a gun, you must understand that it needs to be maintained on a regular basis just like any other mechanical device. Every type of firearm should be thoroughly cleaned and lubricated after each use in order to remain fully operational. You won’t have to totally disassemble your gun to clean it. Just follow these steps:

Unload and Remove the Bolt

Make sure that the gun is unloaded before you clean it. Remove the bolt/lock and brush with a solvent. Proceed to clean, dry, and lube the bolt. Don’t forget to brush the extractor and ejector too.

Swab the Bore

Put the bolt to the side and move a cleaning rod with a bronze brush that has been soaked in gun solvent along the barrel to the muzzle. Only work from the breech/chamber end. Then repeat the cleaning if the barrel is extraordinarily dirty. It should now sit for 10 minutes so that the solvent can dissolve. It will also serve to soften up the bullet jacket, power fowling, and lead.

Scrub the Bore

Move the solvent-laden bronze brush through the barrel a couple of times to loosen up the gunk. Run it through 10 times and proceed to run the cloth patch into the bore to press out carbon that lingers within the muzzle. Instead of pulling the patch right back out, remove it from the rod, insert a clean one, and pull the rod out of the chamber end. Repeat the process with the brush scrubbing. Generally, it takes 25 runs of the brush to properly clean a hunting gun.

Run the Bore with Patches

Run a couple solvent-laden patches into the barrel and out of the muzzle. Be sure to replace with a clean patch each time; pull it back up and replace the patch again. Repeat until you are content with the patch’s cleanliness. While they might not ever be fully white, if they emerge black with some green/blue, continue to clean. You might have to soak the barrel, let it sit, and brush it once again.

Lubrication

While guns need oil, they won’t perform as designed if too much is applied. Once you’ve swabbed and scrubbed, the barrel and bolt will require a single coating of rust prevention oil. Take a clean cotton cloth with some oil and wipe down the gun metal as well as the wood stock. Take care to not place the gun in a sealed case for an extended period of time. Place it in a secure space away from the ammo.
