July 19th, 2015, Bullet Talk, Episode 25: Safety Rules
Firearm Safety Rules
Finger off the trigger until you are REALLY ready to shoot
A gun is ALWAYS loaded, period
A gun should only ever be pointed in a safe direction
Know your target (be sure of your target, AND what is beyond)
Range Safety Rules
CEASE FIRE (stop firing)
COLD RANGE (make sure firearm is unloaded, leave chamber open and laid down so the chamber can be seen open so others or yourself can walk down the range, some ranges require or otherwise appreciate chamber flags)
HOT RANGE (Shooters make sure there is no one down range, checks there is no one down range, and declares range as HOT meaning fire is permitted)
All shooters are responsible for their bullets and where they land.
Respect the range, the others on the range, and any RO's.
Respect yourself, eyes and ears protection!
Know and follow all the rules of the Shooting Range.
Listen and do what the Range Master tells you to do.
Uncase and case your gun at the shooting bench, never behind the safety line.
Always keep the barrel pointed down range.
Always keep the gun on safe until you intend to shoot.
Never shoot at water or hard surfaces.
