It is extremely important to follow safety tips while owning a gun. Whether you’re out shooting on a range, land, or have it stored away, there are different safety tips you should be following.
Here they are:
Point the Gun in a Safe Direction
When you are out shooting, you should always have the firearm pointed in a safe direction while you aren’t shooting. This could be simply pointing the weapon down to the ground and away from the body. When you are out shooting, the gun is loaded, so you never want it accidentally fire in the air.
Keep Your Finger Off the Trigger
Until you’re ready to shoot, keep your finger off the trigger. This helps to ensure that you won’t accidentally pull the trigger and fire the weapon. If you keep it pointed in a safe direction with your finger off the trigger, you’ll be following vital safety rules.
Keep the Gun Unloaded
When you’re not out shooting, it’s important to keep your gun unloaded and in a safe place in your home. This is important for your safety and your children’s safety. You never want anyone else to be using your firearm without your permission, so if you have it unloaded and in a safe place, this will ensure that.
