Gun Safety 101: How to Protect Yourself and Your Family As a Gun Owner (Part 3)

Are you a gun enthusiast? Do you keep a gun at home in order to protect your family? Regardless of your personal or political reasons for owning a gun, you need to make sure that the safety of the people around you is not compromised. Here are some more important gun safety tips.

Never Rely on the Safety

Never rely on the safety mechanism of the gun. While it is important to keep it on, they are not foolproof and can malfunction. There may be times when you think it is on when it is actually off. Never rely on "not pulling the trigger" either; it can be pulled by mistake.

Use the Right Ammunition

Always be careful to use the right ammunition. Not all guns are alike, so take the time to find out which ammunition is right for your gun and take the time to purchase it. Using the wrong ammunition can end up damaging your gun.

Don't Make Modifications

Keep the gun as it is. If you want a feature that you don't have, look for a new gun that has it. Making modifications, especially if you are not an expert, can be dangerous. An unsafe modification can lead to a malfunction.

Get It Serviced
