I'm looking for any advise/ info on how to make sure target shooting at home stays safe.
I used to make rough plastic bows and wooden arrows and shoot them in the garden often enough, and that was no problem. Now though, Im doing a beginners course in Dublin and getting hooked on the sport! I realise that I will most likely continue with it after the course is over, and also that I will almost certainly want to be shooting a lot more than once per week. I'm thinking about shooting at home some days but as there is a big difference in using homemade vs professional gear, I want to make sure I do it safely.
I have an area about 50ft long which is walled by my house on one side, and a six foot solid panel fence at the other side and the tail end. The area is about 10ft wide all the way down the length.
What factors do I need to take into consideration if I am to shoot here, or would you just not recommend it at all?
