Safe Area - Whether in a basement, hall or room be sure your range is set up so no one can accidentally walk in front of the firing line. Indoors, make sure doors and side windows are locked. In the backyard, always shoot in a safe direction. In either case, never point the gun toward windows, or where people might walk.
Safe Distance - Have at least 15 feet between the shooter and the target.
