Airgun Safety

Always remember that your airgun is not a toy! It is a real, functional gun. Always observe all of the standard safety procedures of a live firearm. Before you shoot any airgun, read and understand the instruction manual for your airgun. It is essential that all airgun users understand the handling and functions of their airgun. Please see the following safety standards and if you have any questions please contact us or see our blog for help.

  • Remember always to wear appropriate eye protection at all times when handling your airgun
  • Learn how to handle, load, unload, operate, fire and care for your airgun
  • Never play with your airgun. It is a potentially dangerous weapon that can cause serious harm or death
  • Always keep the airgun pointed in a safe direction and never point any airgun loaded or unloaded at any person
  • Always keep your airgun unloaded until ready to fire
  • Make sure that your airgun is unloaded before cleaning
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until you are actually aiming at the target and ready to shoot
  • Never rely on the airgun’s safety to prevent your airgun from firing
  • Never leave an airgun unattended or where it could fire
  • If your airgun is dropped the internal mechanism may result in an accidental firing
  • Store your airgun and pellets (ammo) separately beyond the reach of children.
  • Know your target and what is beyond. Ask yourself what your pellet will hit if it misses
  • Never brandish your airgun in public. It may confuse people and maybe a crime.
