Three basic NRA Safety Rules
A) Always keep the Gun pointed in a safe Direction.
B) Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
C) Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
•Know your target and what is beyond
•Know how to use the gun safely
•Be sure the gun is safe to operate
•Use only the correct ammunition for your gun
•Wear eye and ear protection as appropriate
•Never use alcohol, over the counter drugs or prescription drugs before or while shooting.
•Store guns so that they are not accessible to unauthorized persons
NEVER HAND A LOADED FIREARM TO ANYONE!
There are NO hand-to-hand transfers of Firearms. If you want to pass a firearm to another shooter, place the unloaded Firearm on the bench (or in your holster) and step back. The other shooter may then step forward and pick up (or withdraw) the weapon.
Whenever handling a firearm verify its perceived condition.
When arriving at the range with your Firearm, it must be unloaded and secured.
