Tips to Remember:
1. It may be common sense but always keep the muzzle pointed in safe direction. This means never point your gun at anything you don’t intend to shoot. Finally, be in control of the muzzle at all times so that even if you trip or fall you have a firm grip on the handgun. 2. Firearms should be unloaded when not in use. They should only be loaded when you are on the target range or firing area ready to shoot.
- Firearms and ammunition should be stored away in two separate, secure areas when not in use.
- Unload your gun as soon as you are finished.
- Treat every firearm as if it were loaded. Be sure to handle the handgun properly and check the action to see if ammunition is present. If someone hands you a firearm do not accept it unless the gun is unloaded, and the action is open.
3. Don’t rely on your guns “safety”
- The safety helps to ensure proper gun handling but don’t assume it’s on it’s better to perform the basic safety steps for peace of mind.
- Treat every gun as if it could fire at any time. Never place the safety between positions, it’s better to have it on or off.
- Never touch the trigger on a firearm until you intend to shoot. Be sure to keep your fingers away from the trigger while loading & unloading. And finally, remember to never pull the trigger when the safety is on or if the safety is between safety and fire.
4. Be confident of your target and what’s beyond your target
- Knowing where you bullet will end up is very important. Bullets travel a long way and can penetrate homes and other materials so ensuring your shot will not accidentally hit someone is good gun safety protocol.
5. Use correct ammunition
- It’s important to read and heed all information found on your box of ammunition and make the best purchase to ensure you follow gun safety procedures.
- By using the wrong ammunition, you can cause havoc on your handgun making it inoperable not to mention causing harm to another.
- Don’t use improper reloads or ammunition made of unknown components.
- Don’t use damaged ammunition
6. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled be sure to handle with care. Remember: your gun is still loaded! 7. Don’t forget to wear eye and ear protection when shooting your handgun. Protecting your hearing and vision is important and not to be taken lightly. Wearing protective eyewear can protect you from: twigs, falling shot, clay target chips, ruptured case or firearm malfunction. Don’t forget to wear it even after you are done shooting to protect your eyes from: springs, spring tension parts, solvents or other agents. 8. Before shooting, make sure the barrel is clear of obstructions
- Make sure the action is open and determine that no ammunition is loaded into the chamber or magazine.
9. Don’t alter or modify your gun and be sure to have guns serviced on a regular basis for inspection, adjustment and service.
- This ensures your gun does not accidentally misfire due to modifications you may have made.
- Be sure to have a qualified person handle and make repairs to your gun.
10. Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the firearms you are using
- Each handgun is made differently so familiarizing yourself with the mechanics of the gun will be to your benefit.
- Check manufacturers specifications or read your manual you received with your handgun for accurate handling procedures
