Safeties are mechanical devices that can fail when least expected or can be bumped easily from the safe position. While you must never rely totally on the safety mechanism to prevent accidentally shooting a firearm, always check it frequently and ensure it is re-engaged after taking your shot. An increasing number of self-inflicted and shooter/victim firearm incidents occur due to the safety being disengaged.
