    Lightbulb Before you perform maintenance or repair work on your firearm, do this and live.

    If this is the first time you visit this great forum, or if you are considering the purchase of any type of firearm and you are looking for sage advise.
    Welcome!
    Valuable information from professionals regarding the safe use, maintenance, and general information available on your screen.




    This post is mainly aimed at new firearm enthusiasts.
    But firearm safety is a constant factor for all of us, so for seasoned members, it's just a friendly reminder.


    Firearm Safety Check Procedure.
    This is an obligatory procedure for everyone handling any type of firearm.
    The first thing you will teach your kids, friends or pupils being introduced into the use of any firearm is how to render it safe.
    The goal is to render a firearm into a paperweight.
    You can still jam your finger, but..you will live.


    Gun safety rules apply, always have a backstop, keep the finger off the trigger, point the firearm in a safe direction at all times.
    And if there is someone else in the room beside you, always remove the ammo from the room or the workbench.
    Never use live ammunition to test the loading mechanism, spend a few bucks and get some dummy rounds.
    Believe me, accidental discharges will happen, Murphy's Law applies.

    The procedure varies from firearm to firearm of course, but the goal remains the same.
    Be methodical about it, dogmatic even. This is important.
    Think of it this way:
    You get to do things just once...you can never go back and redo them.


    Every time if take photos like these next ones, I make sure the firearm I am using is safe.

    Here is a nice sequence explaining the procedure.
    In case you missed the video.


    BTW, if you hand a firearm to someone in the range without performing a Safety Check, they will think you are reckless.
    Think about it, if your concern is that someone might not know how to properly load a bullet on X firearm...why would you hand it to them in the first place?


    Always be clear about your intentions.
    Never be afraid to repeat yourself every time and show how to discharge, load and unload a weapon before allowing anyone else to do the same.
    You will look smart, people will show trust and it creates a safe environment for everyone.

    ha, ha, whatever applies...You might have a Garand with a clip inside, you might have a long gun with ammo clips on the buttstock, or two magazines taped together on a short carbine.
    The idea is to remove any live ammunition.
    From inside, on, or around the firearm.
    I don't have a tank parked outside, but I am sure the basic procedure still applies...
