Some of the highlights of gun safety mentioned in the video:
Whether you are a beginner or a professional, always make safety your number one concern!
Just like practicing shooting skills, you must practice safety
Minors must always be supervised by an adult.
Get to know your equipment. (Don't assume it operates like other guns you have used.)
Always use the safety on the gun.
Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, even when the safety is on. (Especially important when loading and unloading!)
Be sure to keep your finger away from the trigger at all times until you are ready to shoot.
If you are unsure of the location of the safety, or any part of the operation of your gun, please contact your local dealer, or visit our website and contact us directly.
Always assume an air gun is loaded.
Wearing eye and ear protection is very important.
When accepting an air gun or picking it up, check for yourself to make sure the gun is unloaded, and the chamber is empty.
Make sure you have a good solid bullet trap or backstop whenever you shoot. (You can get the plans and material list from nrahq.org to build your own)
Always read your manual.
Always secure your gun in a locked location when not in use. (Prevent children or any unauthorized persons from accessing your gun(s).)
New shooters should take a beginning shooters class in addition to studying the owner's manual.
