Rob Pincus is on site at the Ben Avery Shooting Range near Phoenix, Arizona, to discuss firearm safety on the range in regards to pointing a gun. People usually come to the range with their carry gun in the holster and pointed straight down for fast presentation. The gun should then be pointed straight out to take a shot, keeping it in a safe direction at all times: straight down, then straight at the target. Pointing the gun in the air, whether in the high ready position, to do a reload, or for any other reason, is unsafe on an outdoor range with no roof, and is also inefficient.
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student to develop the ability to train realistically for multiple threats. Too often, students on the range just swing between targets instead of training to break their focus on the first threat and truly assess their environment to find and engage any other threats.
