The NRA Range Safety Officer (RSO) program was developed in response to the demand for a nationally recognized range safety officer certification. To become a NRA Range Safety Officer, you must pass the RSO course and demonstrate that you possess the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe shooting activities and range operations.
This course does not encompass the functions and responsibilities of a Range Officer, who conducts NRA competitive shooting events as defined by Rule 11.5 of the NRA Rule Books.
Unless a rifle is handled incorrectly or recklessly, it is not dangerous.
A rifle, like any other precision instrument, is manufactured to perform a specific task and can do so at no risk to the user or others.
By earning this badge, Scouts can develop their shooting skills while learning safe practices.
A shotgun is a precision instrument, designed to shoot a shot charge in a specific pattern to cover a designated area at a certain distance.
Unlike a rifle, the bore of the shotgun is not rifled, so the shot emerging from the muzzle is not spinning.
The Shooting Sports Task Force in 2011 completed production on the new Boy Scouts of America National Shooting Sports Manual for Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, and Venturing. Reference material for all levels was put into one publication.
