Gun safety terminology?

January 26, 2012, 01:45 AM posted in I Have a Question

This probably isn't an issue for the average foreigner in China but I thought I'd ask. My father in-law is visiting my wife and I here in Virginia, and I thought it might be fun to act like true Virginians and visit the firing range.

Anyway,since I may have to be the translator I was wondering if anyone knew common/basic terminology or common phrases about guns, gun safety, targets, types of guns (rifles, pistols, shotguns,etc.)?

You can search for "枪 translation" in google for more Chinese translation in this field, you'll find pictures with both Chinese and English annotation on them easily.
