10 SHOOTING SAFETY RULES
Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
There are several safe “carries” depending on the situation.
NEVER ALLOW THE MUZZLE TO POINT IN THE
DIRECTION OF A PERSON.
Treat every gun as if it were loaded.
You can never be positive that you were the last person to handle
the gun. Never take anyone’s word about whether or not a gun is
loaded. Always check a gun to see if it is loaded when removed
from storage or received from another person. Even if you have
fired an airgun one or more times and no pellet or BB was
expelled from the barrel, it does not mean that the magazine of
the gun is empty of ammunition. Any airgun can fail to feed for
any number of reasons. Continue to treat the airgun as loaded
and ready to fire. ALWAYS TREAT A GUN AS IF IT IS LOADED
EVEN IF YOU KNOW IT ISN’T.
Only load or cock a gun when you are shooting.
A loaded gun has no place in your home or
other public place.
Check your target and beyond your target.
Be sure all persons are well clear
of the target area before you shoot. Check behind and beyond
your target to be certain you have a safe backstop and that no
person or property could be endangered.
Anyone shooting or near a shooter should
wear shooting glasses.
Also, all other persons should remain behind the shooter.
Never climb or jump with a gun.
You can’t control the direction of the muzzle if you stumble or fall.
You should safely lay the gun down or hand it to a companion
while you climb or jump over anything.
Never shoot at a flat hard surface or at the surface of water.
Ammunition can ricochet off of water just like a skipped rock.
Keep the muzzle clear.
Never let anything obstruct the muzzle of a gun. Don’t allow the
muzzle to come in contact with the ground.
Guns not in use should always be unloade
