Firearm Saftey courses
For just firing weapons you do not need a permit to fire it and use it. There are permits and licsenses for owning, but for firing you just need to use basic rules. Always keep the barrel of the gun pointed down and away from people until ready, in case of a misfire. Keep your finger off the trigger and saftey on until ready to fire. Finally, Don't load your gun until you are ready to fire, if you do this the previous two steps will lessen your risk of accident.
