Weapon Tips

Hunting safely should be your main priority on any hunting expedition. There are multiple deaths and injuries each year from firearms and other weapons. Knowing and abiding by weapon safety rules is key in returning home to your family after each hunt. No one knows gun safety tips like the National Rifle Association. Heres some gun safety tips from the N.R.A. 

 ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

 Know how to use the gun safely.

Before handling a gun, learn how it operates. Know its basic parts, how to safely open and close the action and remove any ammunition from the gun or magazine. Remember, a gun’s mechanical safety device is never foolproof. Nothing can ever replace safe gun handling.

 Cleaning.

Regular cleaning is important in order for your gun to operate correctly and safely. Taking proper care of it will also maintain its value and extend its life. Your gun should be cleaned every time that it is used.
