Does Shooting Guns Lower Blood Pressure?

What effect does shooting a gun at the range have on your blood pressure? Will it increase or decrease after a range session? I did my own quick little test to see what effect shooting guns had on me.


Blood Pressure Monitors at Amazon


I started my test by measuring my pressure at home immediately before going to the range. I again measured it in the range parking lot (before shooting), in the parking lot (after shooting), upon my arrival at home and a few hour later at home. The results are as follows.


CONDITION   Blood Pressure
When I first woke up   LOW
Before going to the range (at home)   BORDERLINE
Range parking lot (before)   HIGH
Range parking lot (after)   BORDERLINE
Upon arrival at home   NORMAL



The anticipation of shooting guns caused my bp to rise. It quickly returns to normal after the shooting session is over.
