Attention Gun Enthusiasts New Gun Range to Open in Barry Co.
With firearm season quickly approaching for whitetail deer, you can't have enough places for hunters to get sighted in and a new range is opening in Barry County.
Importance Of Your Firearm Being Properly Sighted In
Whether you have a gun for personal protection, you just like to shoot, or you are a hunter, it is very important to have your gun properly sighted in.
Some good quality time at the shooting range getting to know your gun could be a lifesaver, scoring well in a shooting tournament, or the difference between you shooting an animal properly or wounding the animal and feeding the coyotes.
Sighting your gun is only part of it, the other part is getting to know your gun. An intruder or a whitetail buck doesn't always stand perfectly 20 to 100 yards away so it's important to know your gun so you can make confident adjustments on the fly to hit your intended target properly.
