RO (Range Officer)

I’ve gotta say one of the best ways I’ve gotten knowledge, besides all of Kevin’s great videos is volunteering as an RO at our local outdoor range. We just finished having the Sunflower GSSF match here in Kansas and we got numerous compliments about how the RO’s ran things. Does anyone else help out as an RO at your local range?

One of the ranges I’m a member at has a ‘volunteer’ requirement. I’ll be helping out at the next hunter training course and at the next women’s shoot. I’m not sure that they’ll let me officially RSO, as my NRA RSO cert is expired, but I’m in for whatever assistance they need. If I get to teach or coach, that’s the best :smile:

I work at a range as well as at the USCCA. It’s a great chance to talk local responsibly armed Americans in a fun, casual environment for me. There are times I will RSO as well. Love getting a chance to see everyones firearms and help people be safe!

Yes, I do as well, I am on the board as well as an RSO for the Everett Sportmans club up here in Everett, WA. I love helping newbies get a proper stance and discipline with there firearm wither it’s a hand gun or a rifle.

Nice!
Welcome to the group @Kat!

Yes sir, in fact I had the am shift at the range this morning (NRA RSO cert). Great opportunity to impart a little safety wisdom to new shooters, and learn a lot of interesting techniques from veteran shooters without looking like a stalker. It’s also a great opportunity to see all the new gear in action vs just behind the counter and an opportunity to get some regular practice time in (if I show up early for my shift). I also really like how it helps me with my basics/fundamentals because I’m reinforcing it with the shooters out there.
