Yes, they are real firearms. And they fire real bullets. Which is why safety is always one of our prime concerns. Ranges are constructed so as to be safe, and target shooters are trained by competent and qualified range officers and coaches so that they can shoot safely. And in all the time we've been shooting, we've never had a single injury. You run an enormously higher risk on the drive to or from the range than you do while shooting on the range.
