TEN KEY POINTS OF SAFETY

1. Respect:

Treat all guns as though they are loaded - an accident could be fatal.

 

2. Safe and Sound:

All guns must be in proof and in good order. Do not use a faulty or doubtful gun.

 

3. Open and Empty:

Carry guns open and empty, semi-autos, bolt back and flagged. Never rely on the safety catch.

 

4. Correct Cartridges:

Only carry the correct cartridges for the gauge and chamber of the gun you are using. Never mix gauges in you pockets or bag.

 

5. Barrels Clear:

Check the barrels are free from obstructions before every loading. Check for light.

 

6. Point - Down the Range:

Keep barrels pointing down range at all times.

Open and empty immediately after firing.

 

7. Only Shoot Clays:

Only point or shoot at whole targets thrown for you on your command - not other objects, live or inanimate.

 

8. Misfires:

Keep guns closed for 20 seconds, barrels pointing down range.

Check barrels are clear after a soft or unusual discharge.

 

9. Do Not Mix:

Alcohol, drugs and horseplay - with guns

 

10. Remember:

When shooting, you are responsible for the safe

handling of your gun(s) and the behaviour and

safety of your guests, family and animals.

 

Safety is in the hands of
