How to find a shooting range where you can train and practice REALISTIC defensive gun skills.
For many folks this is the best option. Work with the range you currently practice at to accomplish your goals. This certainly isn’t a foolproof plan, but if you are reading this, you aren’t a fool. That means you have a good chance of finding some success. And success at your local shooting range is a good thing. Changing what you have into a more perfect situation can save you from the long drives to get to more understanding ranges. This means less time in the car, less fuel burned and more time and money for practice and training.
Also, keep in mind that if you improve the training conditions at an existing range, you aren’t just bettering your circumstances. You are actually making things better for everyone that patronizes that range. You will be making the world a better place!
So here are some suggestions for how you can make headway in helping your range be more accommodating to defensive practice and defensive training.
What I’m suggesting is that you position yourself as a person of influence. A leader. Leaders are able to do things that others can’t. They lead. And what you will do is lead your range to a new era of reasonable policies and procedures that enable the range to function safely while you are able to practice and train in a realistic manner. Leaders seek out win-win situations and that is what shooting ranges need to be working towards as defensive shooting becomes more popular and arguably more important.
