Preventing Firearm Accidents

 

Most firearm-related accidents occur because of neglect for basic safety rules or improper gun handling.  Children are often injured while playing with loaded guns or hunters mistakenly shoot their hunting partners.  Whether you keep guns in your home for protection or use them for recreation, you must always treat them with absolute respect.  Don’t compromise the safety of yourself and your loved ones.  Help avoid firearm-related mishaps by using these tips.

 

  • Always treat a gun as if it were loaded. Store and lock weapons and ammunition separately.  Keep guns unloaded when you’re not using them.  Consider a trigger lock.
  • Read the gun’s manual. Follow directions for assembly and never disassemble the weapon beyond the recommended point.
  • Understand how the action works and how to correctly load and unload. Learn the proper way to clean your gun.
  • Know where the safety switch is and how it works. Always keep it on until you are ready to shoot.
  • When handing a rifle to someone, unload the gun, open the action and point the muzzle in a safe direction.
  • Ammunition must be of the same gauge or caliber as specified on the gun by the manufacturer.
  • Before loading, check that the barrel is clean and free of objects. Never try to remove obstructions from the barrel by firing a shot.
  • Always maintain control of the muzzle and point it in a safe direction. Keep your finger out of the trigger guard until you fire.
  • Be certain of your target before shooting. Bear in mind how far your gun can shoot and know what lies past your target.
  • Hunters: Wear fluorescent orange clothing so you’re not mistaken for wild game. When deer hunting, avoid wearing brown and white.  When turkey hunting, avoid wearing red, white, or blue.
  • Never jump ditches or climb trees, fences, or walls with a loaded gun. If you must, unload the gun and leave the action open, then clear the obstacle.
  • If you buy a used gun, have a qualified gunsmith check that it’s in good working condition.
