Hi,

Just to now correctly inform you of the safe methods of handling your air rifle, please have a look through the following images.


If you need to lay your rifle down, place it on the ground with the muzzle over the firing line pointing towards the targets.

When getting up from a prone or kneeling shot, keep the muzzle pointing at the ground.

If you hold the rifle with two hands, keep the rifle pointed as directly towards the ground as possible. It is also good practise to keep your fingers out of the trigger guard and away from the trigger.

This single handed hold of the rifle shows the good practise of keeping away from the trigger and pointing the muzzle directly at the floor.

Can all members and visitors please take notice of the safe gun handling advice above please.
Several times recently we have had to speak with shooters regarding safety.
Thanks
