Jumping Targets features several reasons why shooting sports are enjoyable, beneficial and fun for the whole family.
- Fun – Shooting activities are fun. Shooting activities can be conducted in indoor shooting areas or outdoor areas with steel targets.
- Safe – Compared to group or individual sporting activities, shooting sports are safe. For example, people are 100 times more likely to receive an injury in a swimming pool than by gunfire. People are 31 times more likely to receive an injury by simply riding in a car than by gunfire. With more gun safety and training programs growing through the U.S., the number of gun accidents are declining and are in fact at an all time low.
- Family – Shooting sports give families a great way to spend time together. Shooting targets make it easy for families to spend time outdoors, whether it is fathers and sons or mothers and daughters too.

Shooters that continue to train can experience physical and mental strength, hand-eye coordination, stamina and fine motor skill development. These skills can help people throughout all aspects of their lives.
