If you are thinking of purchasing a gun or you already own one, you need to know how to use it in the safest way possible. Guns can be dangerous if they are not handled and kept correctly, and it’s important that you do not put yourself and others in danger. As such, you need to learn how to remain safe when you own a gun, and that’s exactly what we’re going to be looking at right now.

Guns Should Be Unloaded When Not In Use

When you are not using your gun, it must remain unloaded. Leaving a loaded gun anywhere is dangerous and is often how accidents have ended up occurring in the past. If someone gets their hand on your gun and starts being silly with it, there is a far greater risk of something going wrong if you have left the gun loaded, as they may accidentally shoot it. Or, if you are just carrying your gun without the intention of using it, you may accidentally press the trigger without thinking, but if it’s not loaded, nothing can happen.

Don’t Touch The Trigger, Even With Safety On

Safety ensures that the gun cannot be fired when it is not meant to be. However, you cannot simply rely on the safety to prevent this. You should never touch the trigger if you do not have the intention of shooting, even if the safety is on. You have no way of knowing that it’s not going to malfunction, and you could end up causing an accident with fatal consequences if you’re not careful.

Always Use The Right Ammunition

Using incorrect or improper ammunition can destroy a gun over time, but it can also cause painful personal injury. It might take you some time to find the right ammo for your gun, but it’s worth it because if you’re unlucky, all it takes is one improper cartridge of the wrong caliber to ruin your gun completely.

When you are looking at guns for sale, you need to research the correct ammo for that particular gun. Most guns have their make, model, and serial numbers on them, and you can use this to find the correct ammo.

Keep Your Guns Stored Safely

The last point we want to make is that you need to store your guns safely when you are not using them. This includes engaging the safety, ensuring that they are unloaded, and then placing them somewhere they can be locked away. Your ammo should be stored separately from the weapon itself to further avoid any safety incidents.

So, now you know some of the things you should do to stay safe when you own a gun. If you are interested in finding out more about fun safety, do a little more research and take all possible precautions to avoid safety issues in the future.

  1. Well… that one somewhat came out of left field.
    I’m all for legal and responsible gun ownership and use, but that topic might require a more thoughtful approach if this is meant to be done seriously. As gun safety rules go, this list is a bit laughable.

      1. Everybody knows, the bullets come out of the 30 magazine clip as soon as you activate the gun brace on your pistol which turns it into a full auto gatling bazooka… duuuh!

    1. Given what SHOT Show was like this year, can you really blame the AI for thinking they’re toys? It’s not like the vendors were treating them as weapons either.

      1. Purchasers are the same as wot players. Over 800 tanks/guns and some people have to own them all. No matter what the tank/gun they’ll still be a 43% loser
