Safety First!

Before we get into the details of the NSSP, let’s talk about our commitment to safety. As with all Royal Rangers activities, if they are conducted improperly, without proper supervision, or if participants disregard the rules of safety, the possibility of serious injury or death increases. So the National Office of Royal Rangers has designed the entire NSSP around a core standard: Safety First!

Royal Rangers are always to be “READY”. In this case, to be "ready" you have to know the basics of safety. Safety is the first - and the last - rule in the shooting sports. As you progress through the requirements for the NSSP, and its Merits and Competitions, you will be required to learn and obey every safety standard and adhere to the rules and regulations adopted by the National Office. We cannot say too much about safety. It is that important! Commit yourselves today to learning about and experiencing the challenge of the shooting sports like all Royal Rangers who excel – with Safety First!
