NRA Releases Practice Range App That Teaches You How to Shoot

(iTunes)

The National Rifle Association has released an iPhone and iPad app that allows users to test their shooting skills and provides safety tips as well as information on gun rights and laws in various states.

The “NRA: Practice Range” app seeks to provide “one-touch access to NRA network of news, laws, facts, knowledge safety tips, education materials and online resources.”

The app, among other things, instructs shooters to always “use only the correct ammunition for your gun” and “never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting.”

The 3D shooting game included in the app lets users take aim in a virtual gun range. The game is not violent and does not involve the shooting of human targets — a change of pace from many video games released these days. Because it contains “no objectionable material,” iTunes lists the app as appropriate for everyone over 4-years-old.

According to Politico, it will cost 99 cents to upgrade your gun from a M9 to a Beretta, Browning or a Colt. There is also the option of indoor, outdoor and skeet shooting modes.

You can download the NRA app for free on your iPhone or iPad.
