Target shooting education video series now available for viewing

The 5-video series provides tips for safe and respectful target shooting on public lands

Boulder County, Colo. - A new video series entitled “Safety
& Respect” has been created by the Northern Front Range Recreational Sport
Shooting Management Partnership, or Sport Shooting Partnership. The five-video
series was created to help new and experienced target shooting participants
have a safe and successful experience on public lands. Each video in the series
highlights an important aspect of the target shooting from choosing a safe
location to cleaning up afterward.

One of the partnerships main strategies
is to provide information and education about safe and responsible shooting for
both sport shooters and other recreationists. The video series, along with
other educational materials, and the full Partnership strategy can be found at
www.SportShootingPartners.org.

The videos are currently all available
for viewing on
YouTube
or the
Partnership
website
, and will also be released on the
Partnership’s social media platforms as part of a new campaign – #SafetySaturdays.
Beginning on Saturday, Oct. 8, the
Facebook
page
and Twitter feed
for the Sport Shooting Partnership will provide the next video in the series
for public viewing. The idea is to give important safety information in smaller
pieces, but allow for the option of viewing all videos in sequence if so
desired.
