- Personal Protective Gear for Shooters and Spectators, Acceptable Ammunition, Target Configuration and Target Service Life:
- Always wear ANSI approved safety glasses, shooting rated hearing protection and protective clothing.
- Use only high quality duty/service ammunition when shooting steel
targets. If using non-frangible ammunition use handgun ammunition with a
maximum velocity of 1,500 feet per second. Rifle ammunition muzzle
velocity should not exceed 3,200 feet per second.
- Bullet fragments and jacketing can sometimes deflect back in the
direction of the shooter at distances greater than 20 yards for handguns
and greater than 100 yards for rifles. While these fragments and
jackets may cause injury, they typically have very little energy –
dependent on a number of factors such as velocity, bullet design, and
- No shotgun slugs! Shotgun lead birdshot and buckshot ammunition can be shot at steel targets.
- Never shoot Armor Piercing (AP), steel core or hardened type
ammunition at any steel plate. These types of ammunition are designed to
pierce steel – use common sense to prolong the life of your
high-quality steel targets!!
- Remember, ballistic science is based in theory. Unexpected ricochets
can occur, regardless of the target type being shot. Always use caution
when shooting, especially at steel targets. Target Service Life-
- Targets must always be set up completely vertical, no backward or side to side leaning.
- Use only a properly constructed firing range with adequate backstop
height (25 feet in height is recommended) and adequate down range safety
area of 500 yards or more. Locate the steel targets as close to the
backstop as possible to help reduce the down range ricochet effect and
- Spectators should stand 10 yards behind the shooter.
- Recommended minimum distances from steel targets to shooter are 20 yards for pistols and 100 yards for rifles.
- Renaissance Steel Research, LLC targets are highly tested targets,
designed to withstand many impacts from suitable and appropriate
projectiles. However, they do not last forever.
- If a target looks visibly damaged beyond shallow (<2mm) depressions, discontinue use of the target.
- Failure to do so may create a dangerous condition, as a damaged
steel target is more likely to ricochet projectiles, jacketing and lead
the shooter and spectators.
- The goal of an effective steel target is to absorb projectile energy, and also to deflect it down toward the ground.
- If there are deep depressions in the target (>2mm), the
likelihood and danger of those areas redirecting projectiles back at the
shooter are increased.
- Discontinue use of a target if there are any deep depressions on the
face of the target, or any other changes to the face of the target,
other than paint wear.
- Renaissance Steel Research is not responsible for any injuries or damage that occurs from the use of a damaged target.
- ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
- This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that
the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause
injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or
front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates
the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
- ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
- When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along
the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch
- ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
- Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if
possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the
action and looking into the chamber which should be clear of ammunition.
If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s),
leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
- Know your target and what is beyond.
- Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt.
Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means
observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a
direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap.
Think first. Shoot second.
- Know how to use the gun safely.
- Before handling a gun, learn how it operates. Know its basic parts,
how to safely open and close the action and remove any ammunition from
the gun or magazine. Remember, a gun’s mechanical safety device is never
foolproof. Nothing can ever replace safe gun handling.
- Be sure the gun is safe to operate.
- Just like other tools, guns need regular maintenance to remain
operable. Regular cleaning and proper storage are a part of the gun’s
general upkeep. If there is any question concerning a gun’s ability to
function, a knowledgeable gunsmith should look at it.
- Use only the correct ammunition for your gun.
- Only cartridges or shells designed for a particular gun can be fired
safely in that gun. Most guns have the ammunition type stamped on the
barrel. Ammunition can be identified by info printed on the box and
sometimes stamped on the cartridge. Do not shoot the gun unless you know
you have the proper ammunition.
- Wear eye and ear protection as appropriate.
- Guns are loud and the noise can cause hearing damage. They can also
emit debris and hot gas that could cause eye injury. For these reasons,
shooting glasses and hearing protectors should be worn by shooters and
- Never use alcohol or over-the-counter,prescription or other drugs before or while shooting.
- Alcohol, as well as any other substance likely to impair normal
mental or physical bodily functions, must not be used before or while
handling or shooting guns.
- Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons.
- Many factors must be considered when deciding where and how to store
guns. A person’s particular situation will be a major part of the
consideration. Dozens of gun storage devices, as well as locking devices
that attach directly to the gun, are available. However, mechanical
locking devices, like the mechanical safeties built into guns, can fail
and should not be used as a substitute for safe gun handling and the
observance of all gun safety rules.
- Be aware that certain types of guns and many shooting activities require additional safety precautions.
