When passing a firearm to another person, follow these steps.

  • Keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction.
  • Turn your back toward the other person, and unload the firearm.
  • Put the safety on.
  • With the action open, check the chamber and magazine to make sure there is no ammunition.
  • Face the other person, and let him or her grasp the firearm securely.
  • Continue to hold onto the firearm until the other person confirms that he or she is holding it securely by saying “Thank you,” “I’ve got it,” or something similar.
