Firearm and Handgun Ammo Safety

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a government organization, is committed to safe handling when it comes to the use of firearms. As part of its efforts to teach gun safety, the organization released a "Top Ten" list of safety tips to help firearm owners exercise safety and caution when using firearms and storing them in their home. Nearly all firearm accidents that occur in homes could have been prevented if the homeowners had simply exercised caution and followed several safety guidelines. The organization says that proper storage is the most important way to prevent these accidents from happening. Especially if you have children in your home, these safety tips can be vital in keeping you and your loved ones safe. Here are seven tips about what you should know about handling and storing handguns and handgun ammo in Newton.

A Safe Direction

First and foremost, always keep the muzzle of your gun pointed in a safe direction. What does this mean? This means that you always keep the gun pointed in a direction that if it accidentally discharged, it would not result in injury or death.

Care with the Trigger

Always keep your finger off of the trigger until you intend to fire the gun. Rest you finger outside of the trigger guard and never ever touch the trigger until you plan to shoot your gun. This will keep you safe and keep those around you safe.

An Unloaded Gun

Always store your gun without ammo. This is especially vital if you live with other people, especially children. Always unload your gun after use and put it away. When you retrieve it again, make sure you always keep the gun pointed away from people and toward the floor, even if the gun is supposedly unloaded.

A Gun Manual

A gun manual can literally be a lifesaver. Always make sure that you read the gun manual that comes with your firearm. Understand what type of ammunition you need for it and how everything works. Be sure that you know how to safely load and unload ammunition from your gun and the magazine.

A Locked Safe

Always store your firearms in a safe place, preferably in a locked safe, cabinet, or vault. This is extremely important if you have children. Young children can become curious about firearms and try to find them in your home out of curiosity while you are not present. While it is important to store them in a secure place, you should also be able to access your gun quickly if needed.

Firearm Safety

It may seem counterintuitive, but many experts recommend that you discuss firearms with your children. While it's important to store the guns out of their reach, you should make sure that your children understand what guns are and that they should always stay away from them, especially when they play at friends' homes. Many gun accidents occur when children are away from their own homes and in the presence of children who did not understand gun safety. Make sure your children understand that they should always seek the help of an adult immediately when they find a gun and never play with firearms.

Ammunition Safety

Just as it is important to properly store firearms and educate children and family members about their use, it is also vitally important to properly store ammunition. Store your ammo in a separate locked container and make sure that your children and family members understand the importance of ammunition safety. By following these guidelines with guns and handgun ammo in Newton, you can keep your family and loved ones safe while also properly using firearms.
