Basic Safety

BB guns are real guns, they are not toys.  They should be treated with the same respect as any other firearm.

Three Fundamental Rules:

Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

Always Keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

Other safety rules to remember

Always wear eye protection.

Always get the permission of parent or guardian before handling a gun.

Always have an adult present when you use a gun.

Know how the gun works and how to use it.

Most air gun accidents are caused by ignorance and/or carelessness.

Ignorance: Lack of knowledge

Carelessness: Failure to use knowledge
