Hi,

This is the start of a series of Photographs and information to illustrate what we consider to be Bad or outright Dangerous practice when handling an air rifle (Or any other firearm for that matter).

Hopefully the danger in the following images is obvious, but we will explain the risks anyway for clarity.


Just a quick note that for all of the unsafe photographs, we did not use a real air rifle, we used the weather vane!

Thanks

Lincs HFT

At a first look this one does not look too bad. But the rifle is not pointing directly at the ground.

Which could result in this...

It might make it easy to carry... but it is not safe for your fellow shooters..

Again, please put your rifle down pointing across the firing line towards the target, don't do this...

Posted Image


Please do not ever rest the rifle on your foot...

Totally against the policy of keeping it pointing at the floor...

Don't use the scope as a carry handle. It won't keep the barrel pointing down.

If you are waiting to shoot, don't point your rifle along the line towards your fellow shooters...

Please be careful when getting up from a prone shooting position.

This is not the correct way to do this...

I know that air gauges on the end of the cylinder are in a daft place to check, but please don't check them like this...

Also don't check you stock mounted air gauge like this...
