A place or area reserved for shooting range is the area where a specialized facility is provided for shooting under supervision. The facility is tailored for firearms, training, shooting practices, or competitions.
This is a facility, site, or field which is particularly built for weapon use. Some shooting range is managed by military or legal authorities, while the majority of the ranges are privately owned and supported mostly for recreational shooters by citizens and sports groups.
It is the responsibility of supervisory staff to ensure that all arms security rules and related government laws are complied with at all times.
Shooting ranges may be indoors or outdoors. They may be limited or maybe specialized in particular disciplines as trapped/skeets, air gun/rifle for Olympic competitions. The high-power calibers, completely automatic weapons, or rifles are restricted by most indoor ranges.
