Firearms Safety Rules:
Safety in the use of firearms is more a matter of training than
a problem of laying down a dozen or so rules. Safe handling of
firearms is acquired by long experience. The veteran grows more
cautious the longer he/she is associated with firearms, realizing
just how dangerous they can be when handled carelessly. The beginner
is more apt to handle a firearm in an improper, if not to say,
dangerous, manner. Because of lack of experience, the beginner
does not realize how careful he/she must be. To say, "I didn't
know it was loaded", or "I'm sorry", will not remedy
damage done. Manufacturers have done their part to make arms safe,
and we must do ours.
1. If a revolver or pistol is handed to you, or you pick one up,
examine it to see if it is loaded.
2. Never handle, point, or look over the sights of any firearm
handed to you without first opening it to be sure it is not loaded.
3. In handing a firearm to someone, see that it is unloaded and
uncocked and be sure the muzzle is not pointing at anyone.
4. In unloading a pistol, or clearing a jam in it, always first
remove the magazine and then draw the slide back and lock it.
5. Before firing, always inspect the inside of the barrel to be
sure there is no obstruction.
6. Never carry a loaded firearm to the firing point or from one
firing point to another firing point.
7. Never load, or cock any firearm until you are at the firing
point, facing the target, and ready to shoot.
8. When leaving the firing point, comply with the command "Slides
back, cylinders out, guns on the (table) bench or in the box,
and empty chamber indicators in place!"
9. Never point a firearm (loaded or unloaded) at anyone you do
not want to shoot.
10. Never place your finger on the trigger until you are in firing
position and ready to shoot.
11. Never talk to a shooter who is on the firing point until he/she
has finished firing and has stepped away.
12. Never turn around while you are on the firing point without
first unloading your firearm and laying it down pointed toward
THE FUNDAMENTAL NRA RULES FOR SAFE GUN
