Firearm safety is of paramount importance when it comes to responsible firearm ownership. Adhering to proper safety practices and guidelines helps to prevent accidents, injuries, and promotes a safe environment for yourself and others.:
- Treat every firearm as though it’s loaded, regardless of whether you believe it is unloaded.
- Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction, away from anything you don’t want to damage or destroy.
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you have your sights on the target and are ready to shoot.
- Know your target and what’s beyond it to prevent unintentional damage or injury.
It is very important to perform additional safety practices, such as locking firearms away when not in use to prevent unauthorized access, reading the owner’s manual to familiarize oneself with the firearm, using the appropriate ammunition, and avoiding handling firearms under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Regular maintenance and inspection of firearms are important for ensuring safe operation, and we encourage getting proper training and sharing knowledge with others to promote a safe environment.
