    Default The NRA releases controversial Practice Range app, for ages 4 and up


    The National Rifle Association, a US organization that promotes firearm ownership, safety and self-defense, has released an app for iOS entitled NRA: Practice Range. The app contains several links to different NRA resources, but the focus is obviously on its built-in mini game.

    The game itself isnt anything special, its a shooting range that offers 3 gameplay modes: Indoor Range, Outdoor Range and Skeet Shoot. But what seems to be causing waves in the tech community today are its in-app assault weapons upgrades, and its ages 4 and up App Store rating

    Heres the description of the shooting range mini-game from the App Store:

    NRA: Practice Range also offers a 3D shooting game that instills safe and responsible ownership through fun challenges and realistic simulations. It strikes the right balance of gaming and safety education, allowing you to enjoy the most authentic experience possible.

    9 firearms
    3 immersive shooting ranges
    3 distinct difficult levels
    Analog & Gyroscope game controls
    Game Center integration

    In the apps defense, it does do a good job of promoting gun safety. I received a tip, for example: Gun Safety Tip #5: Be sure the gun is safe to operate, before every new round. But I can see why folks have an issue with its 4+ age App Store rating (though doesnt Apple have a hand in that?).

    It also seems like an odd PR move, given the huge gun control debate going on in the country at the moment, and all of the criticism the NRA has taken over it. But Im no expert. If you want to see what all of the controversy is about, you can find NRA: Practice Range in the App Store, for free.

    Whats your take on the NRAs new app?

    Really?

    I was shooting when I was three in PA, as long as your under strong supervision and someone is helping you handle the weapon (holding it for you) i see no reason to be upset.

    Boohoo, it's not the gun killing people, it's people killing people.

    As for this app, NRA had no control over timing. They finished making it over 2 months ago and sent it into Apple for App Store verification which god knows how long.
