Firearm Safety

Safety is the most important factor at JAKES Take Aim events and the safety of participants is our top priority. You can have fun and be safe at the same time by following Daisy's ten shooting safety rules.

Ten Shooting Safety Rules

Airguns are real guns, not toys. You or others can be killed or seriously injured if these rules are not followed. Click on each rule for more information.

  1. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

There are several safe "carries" depending on the situation. Never allow the muzzle to point in the direction of a person.

  2. Treat every gun as if it were loaded.

You can never be positive that you were the last person to handle the gun. Never take anyone's word about whether or not a gun is loaded. Always check a gun to see if it is loaded when removed from storage or received from another person. Even if you have fired an airgun one or more times and no pellet or BB was expelled from the barrel, it does not mean that the magazine of the gun is empty of ammunition. Any airgun can fail to feed for any number of reasons. Continue to treat the airgun as loaded and ready to fire. Always treat a gun as if it is loaded even if you know it isn't.

  3. Only load or cock a gun when you are shooting.

A loaded gun has no place in your home or other place.

  4. Check your target and beyond your target.

Be sure all persons are well clear of the target area before you shoot. Check behind and beyond your target to be certain you have a safe backstop and that no person or property could be endangered.

  5. Anyone shooting or near a shooter should wear shooting glasses.

It is important to protect your eyes from ricochet shot, pieces of clay target and powder residue. Also, all other persons should remain behind the shooter.

  6. Never climb or jump with a gun.

You can't control the direction of the muzzle if you stumble or fall. You should safely lay the gun down or hand it to a companion while you climb or jump over anything.

  7. Avoid ricochet.

Never shoot at a flat hard surface or at the surface of water. Ammunition can ricochet off of water just like a skipped rock.

  8. Keep the muzzle clear.

Never let anything obstruct the muzzle of a gun. Don't allow the muzzle to come in contact with the ground.

  9. Guns not in use should always be unloaded.

Keeping guns unloaded when not in use is critical to the safety of you and others. When you are finished shooting, put the trigger safety in the "on" position and unload the gun. Store guns so that they are inaccessible to untrained shooters and store ammunition separately from the gun.

10. Respect other people's property.

Whether you're target shooting or hunting, if you're a guest on others' land, you should leave it exactly as you found it.
