Fundamental Rules and Procedures for Safe Firearms Handling

  • Always treat every gun as if it were loaded!
  • Always keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction!
  • Always be sure the barrel is clear of any obstruction.
  • Always be sure of what lies beyond your target and the safety of bystanders before you shoot.
  • Always wear ear & eye protection when shooting.
  • Always carry your gun so that you can control the direction of the muzzle if you fall or stumble.
  • Always keep your finger off the trigger and leave the safety on until ready to shoot!
  • Never load the firearm until ready to shoot!
  • Never leave a firearm unattended. Guns and ammunition should always be secured and stored separately, and beyond the reach of children and adults unfamiliar with firearms.
  • Never allow your firearm to be used by anyone who has not read this instruction and safety manual.
  • Never point any gun, loaded or unloaded, at anything you do not intend to shoot.
  • Never touch the barrel after firing - it could be very hot!
  • If your rifle stops firing with a live round still in the chamber (a misfire), quickly remove the round, keeping your face away from the ejection port. If you cannot remove it within 10 seconds, remove the magazine, and wait 15 minutes with the rifle pointed in a safe direction. At this point, the rifle could still fire the round.
  • If your bolt fails to unlock, and you try to free it by tapping the butt stock on the ground, while pulling on the charging handle, point the muzzle away from yourself, and in a safe direction.
  • If there is water in the barrel, do not fire the rifle, it could explode!
  • If a noticeable difference in sound or recoil is experienced, Stop Firing! This condition could indicate an incomplete powder burn and/or a bullet stuck in the bore.
