Please check with your local shooting range on what types of firearms and ammunition are allowed and not allowed at their facility.

7. How much ammo should I buy if I am new to firearms and the gun range? Start with 100 rounds. Here is why. We highly recommend that all new firearm owners first get with a certified firearms trainer to learn the basics about firearm safety, handling, operation, and the important skills needed for accuracy. This will require about 50 rounds. Soon after the initial training, new firearm owners should practice what they learned in their initial training at a range which should take another 50 rounds. More ammo can be purchased when you are comfortable with your firearm.

However, if you are a proficiently skilled firearm owner, then 100 rounds should do. 50 rounds (*state average) live-fire proficiency requirement, and 50 rounds to reload and have on hand.

9. What are some benefits to getting a license or permit to carry if my state allows firearm carry without a license or permit? Only individuals with a state license to carry can legally travel to another reciprocity state with their concealed firearm. Please consult your state laws and respective reciprocity agreements. Secondly, in the event you should be pulled over by law enforcement, you will have a license or permit that immediately rationalizes why you have a concealed firearm.

10. Why do some individuals who frequent the gun range purchase extra magazines? Most individuals find having a set of magazines that holds their defensive ammo, and a set of magazines for the range more convenient than having to unload > reload > unload > reload > as most individuals will never need to discharge their firearm outside of  a gun range.
