Each has its own set of pros and cons. So before we move on to what shooting is like in Arizona, let’s learn a bit about shooting in general.

So Which One is Better: Indoor Shooting or Outdoor Shooting?

If you are to pick any of the two, which one would you go for? Both have their own ways to exploring this unique sport. With indoor shooting, one clear advantage is that the setup can be done as per one’s own desire. This is really beneficial for officials and personnel who want to train, such as those in the police or the military. But if you are someone who doesn’t like the uncertainty that comes with outdoor shooting, then indoor is the way to go.

With outdoor shooting, there’s more to explore. Although there is a lot of thrill that comes with outdoor shooting, there are rules and regulations to follow nonetheless. With wildfires being at the rage, safety with arms and ammunition is even more crucial in public spaces. And even after you are done with the shooting, you may have to clean up any mess that is left behind. This may include trash or any other kind of distortion that the shooting may cause. There may not be workers employed for this purpose everywhere.

What is Outdoor Shooting Like in Arizona?

Although there are restrictions imposed on outdoor shooting due to the eventual wildfires taking place. But authorities have been taking measures to assure safety by creating dedicated shooting sites. Speaking of Arizona, in fact, just in the beginning of 2020, five recreational shooting sites have been approved for Phoenix.

Since shooting is allowed in the lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, it is a clear sign of the concern shown by the BLM making outdoor shooting possible and safe in Arizona. Other than the areas, there is a legal law regarding ammunition and arms that needs to be followed at all times. For instance, on federal lands, it is illegal to shoot any objects that have been designated for public enjoyment.

 

Moreover, specific law codes have been set to prevent further mishaps. According to the Arizona Administrative Code, regular maintenance is to be done at outdoor shooting sites to monitor lead levels and make sure they do not pass the 800 parts per million mark. At the moment, as much as 97% of the lands managed by the BLM are open for this shooting sport.

 

We, the Heatwave Arizona Shooting Team, wish to make shooting fun, while maintaining a friendly environment of both competition and collaboration.
