sports have sprung up all over the world and air pistols are one of
the safest tools for staying in top form during the off-season.

foam, metal, and other materials. You can buy professional targets in

Shooting sports and the rules of target practice with air pistols
practice, like other shooting sports, requires you to treat every gun
as if it's loaded. You should exercise the same caution with air
pistols that you would with regular guns. Do not load your ammunition
until you are on the firing line and prepared to shoot. Make sure that
there is a backstop behind your target that will halt any errant
pellets. Clear the area of other people, animals, or any property that
could be damaged by a stray shot.
Pay close attention to the
materials that go into your target as well as its angle. Pellets can
ricochet off many materials, especially if they are struck directly
head-on. The joys of shooting sports can quickly be ruined by an
unfortunate accident, so use your air pistols wisely and with serious
attention to gun safety rules.
