It’s a strange time to be a new gun owner. Experienced gun owners are usually more than willing to take a new gun owner to the range or at least help them find training. However, with Corona Virus, mandatory shelter in place orders, social distancing, and the like, those types of activities aren’t really possible.
If you are new gun owner, I highly suggest that you take in as much info as you can so that you, and those around you, stay safe. I recommend starting with Kit Badger’s new Firearms Basics series. The series will have several installments that cover topics from the 4 basic safety rules, to safe storage, and more. The first two installments are already available with additional installments coming daily.
