Firearms Safety
Safety is our number one priority.  You should never
touch a gun if you do not know how to handle it,
including how to safely unload it.

Eddie Eagle's rules for children are:
    If you see a gun

  • Stop
  • Don't touch it
  • Leave the area
  • Tell an adult

Basic Safety Rules for adults are taught and emphasized
in all of our classes:

  1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.  The
    directions that are safe vary from location to location.
  2. Always keep your finger out of the trigger guard until
    your sights are on the target. Your finger should be
    pointed straight ahead and touching the frame of the
  3. Always keep the gun unloaded until you are ready to
    shoot it.
  4. Always be sure the gun is safe to operate.
  5. Always know how to operate the gun safely. This
    includes knowing how to unload it and check the
    chamber before cleaning the gun. Every new gun is
    sold with a manual.  All major manufacturers will send
    you a manual free if you don't have one.  It's a good
    idea to always bring the manual to the range with you.
  6. Always use only the correct ammunition for that
    particular gun. Be sure the caliber stamped on the end
    of the ammunition matches the caliber stamped on the
    barrel of the gun.
  7. Always visually identify the target and be aware of
    what is beyond it. Never fire at a sound.
  8. Always wear appropriate polycarbonate eye
    protection, wear good quality ear protection, and be
    sure that those around you do also.
  9. Never use alcohol or take over the counter,
    prescription, or other drugs before or while shooting. If
    you get a new prescription, wait to see how it effects
    you before resuming shooting sports.
  10. Always store guns so they cannot be accessed by
    unauthorized persons.  This means both children and
    unauthorized adults.

Additional safety rules:
Additional rules are required for certain types of guns and
for specialized situations such as each of the various
shooting sports and hunting.

  • Always learn, practice, and follow those additional
    safety rules
