I am seriously considering taking up shooting as a form of stress relief. I hear nothing but good things about it from the people who do it and I've worn through all the reasons why I told myself before I shouldn't.

Just be safe doing it, and I highly recommend it as a group activity.

That's part of what I'm apprehensive about, the "being safe" part. I mean, growing up on the farm, sure, you could just go out and unload a whole clip from the M1A1 into some hay bales and not worry about hitting anything important if you miss, but once you're in someplace enclosed or with other people in it you have to be more careful...

As long as you're shooting at an official range and it's hitting the backstop or berm, that round's not going any farther. Just make sure it hits that backstop or berm.

Most states require that the range own a set distance behind it for just that reason, though.

Remember the four rules and you'll be just fine.
