To avoid accidents when showing a firearm to another person, it's important to follow certain procedures.

  • Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
  • Keep the action open during display. If you show a firearm to a visitor, always open the action first to make sure the gun is not loaded.
  • Only hand the gun to your guest after you have taken these precautions. Be sure the visitor keeps the action open and the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
