How to Handle A Rifle with Safety Precautions?
It’s not a good thing to feel so relaxed. Being too comfortable on the sofa is one thing; being too comfortable with a handgun is another. Anyone who owns or has access to a weapon can follow these four fundamental principles of firearm safety at all times.
Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction at all times
This is the most fundamental law of defense. There would be almost no shooting injuries if anyone treated a pistol so cautiously that the muzzle never pointed at anything they didn’t want to target. It’s as simple as that, and the option is yours.
Never point your pistol at something you don’t want to kill. When loading or unloading a weapon, this is especially important. As long as the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction, no harm will result in the case of an accidental discharge.
WHEN NOT IN USE, FIREARMS SHOULD BE UNLOADED
Firearms can only be armed until you are about to fire in the woods, on the target range, or in a firing location. When not in use, weapons and ammunition should be stored separately in a secure location. You have to keep handguns and ammo out of the hands of children and illegal adults.
As soon as you’re done, unload your rifle. In or near a car, truck, or home, a loaded gun has no location. When you’re done shooting, unload your weapons as soon as possible before bringing them into a vehicle, camp, or house.
Don’t believe in the “safety” of your gun.
Any gun should be treated as though it could shoot at any moment. Any gun’s “security” is a mechanical system that, like any other device, will fail at the worst possible moment. Furthermore, the protection can be “off” when you assume it is “on” by accident. The protection is meant to complement good gun handling, not to take the place of common sense. You can never treat a gun carelessly or presume that only because the “safety” is turned on, the gun will not explode.
Be certain of your objective and what lies behind it.
No one can retaliate with a projectile. When a gun goes off, you lose all control of where the bullet goes and what it hits. Don’t fire until you know exactly where the bullet would land. Be sure the bullet doesn’t hit someone or anything other than your intended target. Shooting at a movement or a noise without being certain of what you’re shooting at is disrespect for other people’s welfare. No aim is so critical that you can’t take the time to double-check
You must take seriously the duty of only using the proper ammo for your weapon. Both signs, including those in the gun’s instruction manual and on the ammunition boxes, should be read and followed. Having proper AR-10 rifle kits is very important.
Using the wrong ammo will ruin a gun and result in serious personal injuries. It only takes one incorrect caliber or gauge cartridge to ruin your rifle, and it only takes a second to double-check each one as you load it. We ensure that the ammo you’re using meets the requirements outlined in the gun’s instruction manual, as well as the manufacturer’s markings on the weapon.
