You as the owner or user of firearms are liable for safe usage of firearms and security.

These are basic rules for safe firearms usage and you are strongly advised to follow them.

Basic Rules for Safe Firearms Usage are below:

1) Always treat this or any other firearm as if it were loaded! Never forget that negligent use of a firearm may cause heavy injuries or even death. Safe usage of a gun has to become a permanent habit. Even when you are sure that the firearm is not loaded, act as if it were loaded.

2) Never point this or any other firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot. Always keep muzzle pointed in a safe direction! Choosing a safe direction, you have to take into account that a bullet may ricochet or hit any other object or to plow through a wall, partitions, the floor or a window. N.B.: never point a firearm (regardless if it is loaded or not) at another person or yourself.

3) Never take anyone’s word that a gun is unloaded. The first thing on your mind (the firearm pointed in a safe direction and with fingers off the trigger) has to be about how to open the slide and to make sure that the firearm is not loaded! If you don’t know how to open the slide of a specific firearm – don’t take it. Better check out user’s guide, ask a retailer or an experienced shooter. Don’t experiment.

4) Before starting shooting, always make sure that the gun is in top working condition and that its barrel is clean, it has no traces of corrosion or other direct impact! If the damage is visible, before using the gun give it to an experienced shooter for checking. Any obstacles in the barrel impede free movement of a bullet and may cause excessive pressure in the barrel. Even few dirt, preservatives, gun oil or rust may cause such high pressure that the gun may swell or even explode – in this way the gun will be destroyed – and the shooter or surrounding people may be heavily injured.

5) Please read user’s rules provided together with the firearm carefully and always follow them! Never use your firearm until you fully read all user’s and safety regulations. If you don’t have the regulations, contact a retail place where you’ve purchased the firearm or directly the manufacturer and request him to provide the regulations.

6) Please read the rules on safe firearms usage provided by the shooting-range carefully and always obey them!

7) Don’t hold your finger on the trigger, until you point at a safe target and decide to make a shot! Until you don’t point at your target, don’t hold your finger on the trigger – in this way you will secure that a shot will not be made until you point at your target.

8 ) Before shooting always make sure that the target and shooting locations are safe! Remember that a bullet flies very far, so you have to check what or whom the bullet may hit. Never shoot reacting to a movement, sound, rustling bushes or a flash of light until you make sure that the target is the one you are pointing at.

9) Only use bullets the gun producer recommended and always make sure that the bullets are of the same calibre as the firearm! The calibre of the most modern firearms is impressed on the barrel (ex.  “9×19” or “.45 Auto”). It has to be indicated on the magazine as well. If a cartridge goes into the firearm, it doesn’t mean that it is a safe cartridge for shooting. Firearms are developed, produced and tested for standard base cartridges ex factory. Manually loaded cartridges may differ from cartridges ex factory, so it is strongly recommended to do not use them. Only use cartridges in full compliance with the indicated. If you try even one incompliant bullet, you may destroy your gun and injure yourself heavily – even to death.

10) During shooting or observation activities high-quality eye and ear protection is required! If you don’t use ear protection, the sound emitted by the firing weapon may injure your auditory organs heavily. The best protection of eyes is goggles with lateral protection. It will help to protect your eyes from cartridge cases, combustion products and other particles ejected. Always use goggles during dismounting or cleaning of your weapon seeking to protect your eyes from springs or other parts, as well as aerosol, solvents or other cleaning solutions.

11) Never use a firearm under impact of alcohol, pharmaceuticals or other psychotropic substances! While holding or using a firearm extreme care, attention, alertness and presence of mind are required. Avoid holding a firearm, if you use pharmaceuticals with sedative impact, which reduce your reaction or senses.

12) All firearms have to be stored unloaded in a safe storage box, in a place unreachable for children and untrained persons.

13) Transportation of firearms is regulated by legal acts. Always transport your weapon in a safe manner, unloaded and in compliance with regulations of legal acts. Remember – no regulations will cover all possible situations. Safe and rational usage of firearms depends on user’s preparation and intellect. Always follow the regulations and think well before using a firearm.

14) Never carry a loaded firearm. This practice is very dangerous and may have severe consequences!

15) Never leave a loaded firearm unattended!

16) Make sure all other shooters and bystanders are well away from the ejection point. Empty cases are hot and they are ejected with great force. They can cause injury.

17) Never put your finger on the trigger, until you are ready to fire.

18) Before cleaning your weapon always make sure that it is not loaded.

19) Never use your firearm in a manner other than for which it was specifically intended.

20)  Never shoot at any hard or flat surface, such as rock or water. The resulting ricochets could result in physical injury, death or other damage.

21) If a gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, as a result of slow primer ignition, keep muzzle pointed down range for a minimum of 30 seconds. If the round does not fire, remove the magazine, clear the weapon and examine the ejected, unfired cartridge. If the indentation from the firing pin is off centre, light or absent, take the pistol to a competent gunsmith. If the indent appears normal compared to other rounds, assume the round is faulty, separate it from the other cartridges, reload and continue shooting.

22) Never force a jammed action. It may cause explosion of the firearm or other damages and may have negative consequences to your health.

23) While preparing to make a shot, always secure safe handling of the firearm. When you finish shooting, unload your firearm.

24) Always make sure that the barrel of your weapon is clear of obstructions. Shooting with the barrel blocked may have severe negative consequences to health and damage the weapon.
