Checking that your shotgun is unloaded

 

It is enough to believe or to assume that a shotgun is unloaded when you first handle it; it must be an automatic reaction to check that it is unloaded by opening it, or by examining the breach and chamber if it is a pump of self loading gun.  

 

  • Always ensure a shotgun is unloaded before you pass it to someone. Then pass it stock first with the breach open and empty.
  • Even when you have emptied the gun or checked that it was unloaded, do not assume that safety precautions can be disregarded.
  • Always ensure that the barrels are not pointed at anything that you do not intend to shoot.
  • Always carry a shotgun open and empty in company.
  • Always treat your gun as loaded and therefore potentially dangerous.
  • Never hand a loaded to an unexperienced person or a person who does not know anything about guns.

 

At all times remember that you have a lethal weapon in your hands, so do not forget the safety rules. Never let your gun be loaded except when expecting game.Unload your gun when you have decided to "call it a day". Do not leave your gun loaded "just in case" this could be a fatal mistake.

 

There are many ways in which you can cause injury or death with a shotgun, it is the simplest thing in the world to have an accident.

By following the really simple rules of Safety and keeping them in mind at all times and perhaps observing that others in your company obey the same rules, you should be able to enjoy a lifetime of sport and pleasure accident free. You will be regarded as a "Safe Shot" even if you are not a very good shot and others will enjoy shooting in your company.
