Whether you are an experienced shooter or haven’t shot a round in your life, this guide, published in partnership with the NRA, will provide new and enlightening information that will make you, and your family, safer gun owners.

Drawing on the National Rifle Association’s more than two centuries of shooting experience, as well as the collected knowledge of more than 55,000 certified instructors, The NRA Step-by-Step Guide to Gun Safety offers key—and life-saving—advice on using, caring for, and storing handguns, rifles, and shotguns. Packed with essential information and resources, including details on how propellants burn in cartridges, shooting etiquette on and off the range, and where to find a certified NRA shooting instructor, The NRA Step-by-Step Guide to Gun Safety will help reinforce the importance of safe gun-handling habits. Included is information on:
  • The safest and most effective way to store and transport pistols, rifles, and shotguns
  • The anatomy of the many kinds of guns available
  • The proper way to reload any firearm
  • The best way to clean your gun
  • Proper use of eye and ear protection
  • The correct clothing to wear while hunting

Having shaped our nation since its birth, guns are an integral part of American life. As more and more Americans choose to own firearms, it becomes increasingly important to educate them on proper shooting and handling techniques.
