The Golden Rules for Handling a Firearm Firearms do not cause accidents. Accidents with firearms happen because of carelessness or because the user of the firearm does not know the golden rules for handling firearms. Always and everywhere observe the following rules when handling firearms. These rules are the basis for your safety and the safety of other people. 1) BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIREARMS YOU ARE USING Different firearms are very different in their operation. No one should carry a firearm without having previously informed themselves about the special circumstances of this firearm and its safe handling. Make sure that you know the most important parts of your firearm, know how to operate the bolt and safety mechanism, and how to safely load and unload the firearm. Never forget that there is no such thing as a fool-proof firearm. Your highest priority when handling your firearm should be safe and responsible behavior. 2) ALWAYS POINT THE MUZZLE IN A SAFE DIRECTION Always check to make sure that there is a safe backstop behind your target. Make it a habit to check the backstop even in dry practice. When handling your firearm, always make sure that the muzzle is pointing in a safe direction. That means that it must never point at the body parts of other persons or yourself. In that way no one can be injured if there is an accidental discharge. So always make sure that the muzzle does not point at persons or objects that could result in ricochets. That means that the muzzle should not be pointed at the ceiling of a room, a wall, the floor, a window or anything else of that kind. 7

Ricochets that result from such discharges may injure persons or damage the property of others. Be careful about the direction the muzzle points even when you are only carrying the firearm. Always think ahead about the direction the muzzle will point if you fall or trip. 3) TOUCH THE TRIGGER ONLY WHEN YOU ARE DEFINITELY READY TO SHOOT When you hold the firearm in your hands, make it a habit to leave your finger either on the trigger guard or pointed straight along the side of the firearm. Touch the trigger blade only when you are actually ready to shoot. 4) ALWAYS UNLOAD YOUR FIREARM IMMEDIATELY IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO USE IT When you hold the firearm in your hands, make it a habit to leave your finger either on the trigger guard or pointed straight along the side of the firearm. Touch the trigger blade only when you are actually ready to shoot. 5) BEFORE SHOOTING, ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE BARREL IS CLEAN Even small amounts of snow, dirt, excess firearm oil or other debris in the barrel can cause deformations of the barrel when shooting or even cause it to explode. This may cause seriously injury to the shooter and other persons present. Before shooting, always check to be sure that the ammunition really belongs to the firearm you are using. If the recoil or the bang of the shot is not typical for the ammunition you are using, immediately stop using the firearm, unload it and check the barrel to make sure it is clean. Never attempt to shoot debris out of the barrel! 8

6) BEFORE YOU SHOOT, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IDENTIFIED YOUR TARGET AND CHECK THE BACKSTOP Never shoot if you do not know exactly where the bullet will strike or if you are not sure of your target. Always make sure that the bullet will be safely stopped behind the target. Carefully check out the area where you intend to shoot before you release the shot. You should make it a habit to do that with an unloaded firearm even in dry practice. Make 100% sure that you know what you are shooting at. Never shoot at a noise, a shadow or in a direction where people or other objects are located. 7) MAKE SURE THE FIREARM FUNCTIONS FLAWLESSLY Firearms need regular maintenance to function without problems. Correct maintenance and storage of the firearm are essential. If there is any doubt whatsoever about the functional capability of the firearm, it should be inspected by an expert. 8) ONLY USE THE APPROPRIATE AMMUNITION FOR EACH SPECIFIC FIREARM Only load ammunition of the specific caliber which corresponds to the barrel of the firearm. The caliber of the ammunition is printed on the box and very often embossed on the cartridges. Never shoot ammunition that does not correspond to the caliber of the firearm. 9) WHEN SHOOTING, ALWAYS WEAR SHOOTING GLASSES AND EAR PROTECTION If the firearm is not properly maintained and cared for, it can result in malfunctions such as an exploding barrel. Impairment of hearing or injuries to the eyes caused by such malfunctions can be prevented by wearing ear protection and shooting glasses. The shooter and bystanders should in no case do without such protective measures. 9

10) NEVER CLIMB ONTO A HIGH SEAT, A TREE OR OVER ANY OTHER OBSTACLE WITH A LOADED FIREARM If you climb up or down a tree with your firearm, when you are on the move in rough terrain, or have to climb or jump over an obstacle, do not do it with a loaded firearm. If your loaded firearm gets tangled up in rough terrain or anywhere else, do not pull on it and do not push it hard in one direction. Always unload your firearm if you are not sure what the conditions will be like. 11) NEVER SHOOT AT WATER OR HARD SURFACES Bullets that strike hard surfaces or water become ricochets. The direction in which the bullet ricochets is unpredictable and that entails significant danger and potential for injuries. 12) NEVER TRANSPORT A LOADED FIREARM Always unload the firearm before you transport it in a vehicle. It is best to transport your firearm in a firearm-case or a special sheath. 13) NEVER CONSUME ALCOHOL, DRUGS OR OTHER MEDICATION BEFORE OR WHILE SHOOTING A FIREARM Alcohol, narcotics or medication, whether on prescription or not, should not be consumed before or while you are shooting. Alcohol, narcotics or medication can impair judgment and coordination. This can cause accidents with severe damage to persons or property. 10

14) STORE YOUR FIREARM OUT OF REACH OF UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS AND CHILDREN Make sure that children and unauthorized persons do not have access to your firearm, the ammunition or other parts of the firearm. This is solely your responsibility. Always store ammunition separately from your firearm and lock both your firearm, as well as the ammunition, in a lockable secure access container such as, for example, a safe or a firearms cabinet. 15) CLEAN AND INSPECT YOUR FIREARM REGULARLY Regular cleaning and inspection of your firearm is of the utmost importance. It ensures the proper functioning capability of your firearm. Clean your firearm every time after using it. Clean the firearm after a long storage period. It is essential that dust or excess, congealed gun oil be removed before using the firearm. In the process, check the individual parts of the firearm for signs of wear or other defects. When you clean your firearm, it is essential that it be unloaded. No ammunition should be within reach when you clean the firearm. 11
