Accepting a Firearm
When accepting a firearm from another person:
- Check that the action is open before touching the firearm. If it isn’t, ask the person who is handing you the firearm to open it to show it is unloaded.
- Visually check that the chamber and magazine are empty of ammunition before touching the firearm.
- Grasp the firearm with both hands, keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
- Say “thank you” to alert the passer to release the firearm.
