11. Before discharging your weapon on the range make a visual examination of the area, both the range itself and the immediate surrounding area, to ensure that it is safe to begin firing. 12.

The first rope is 2ft (60cm) and the second 3ft (90cm) from the ground. The lines should be about 6–8in (15–20cm) from the backstop. Paper targets are then pegged between the two lines. In this way targets can be set up without the need for wooden support structures, which, if hit by a BB, could cause a ricochet. I personally prefer to use a pistol that fires pellets as this is a much more sophisticated projectile than a BB, especially when quality match-grade pellets are used.

These shooters say that the CO2 pistols are so similar to the firearms they copy in weight, dimension and action that – other than recoil – they perform in exactly the same way as the firearm.
