First-Time Gun Owners at Risk for Suicide, Major Study Confirms - The New  York Times

If you are new to the world of guns, you’ll have some education you will need to go through before you’re ready to shoot on your own. This is to ensure that you know how to handle a gun safely and also so that you can shoot as well as possible. You may choose to have a more experienced friend or family member show you the ropes or you can find a class in your area that is taught by a professional. Shooting ranges often offer such classes. Either way, here are four important things you will learn when being educated about guns. 


Another thing you’ll learn during your education about guns is how best to conceal (when it is legal to do so). There are many different ways people choose to conceal their weapons, and you’ll have to decide which is best for you. Conceal and carry clothing can be a great affordable, safe, and comfortable option which is also widely available. 

Gun Laws

Gun laws and hunting laws differ from country to country and even from state to state. This is an important part of the education you’ll need to receive before going out to shoot unsupervised. In some places, for example, it is legal to open carry. You will want to find this out before even purchasing a gun. 

You will also need to know what the laws are when it comes to purchasing a gun, locking up your gun, and any laws that pertain to hunting if that’s something you plan on doing. 


Of course, when it comes to guns, safety is of utmost importance. Part of what makes guns safe is making sure the people who own them are well educated when it comes to gun safety. You should know how to shoot a gun safely, store a gun safely, and lock it when not in use. Once you know all of these things and feel comfortable, you will be ready to shoot a gun on your own. 

Gun Types

There are many different types of guns available and they come in all different sizes and price ranges. There is definitely something out there that will perfectly suit your needs, you just have to do your research to figure out exactly what it is. Ask friends and family members, or people working at gun ranges and gun stores in order to find out more about your options. Then do some additional research on your own before making your final decision. 

Learning about guns is an exciting early step in your journey of being a gun owner! You can look forward to applying your new knowledge when you get out there and start shooting.
