What You Need To Know About Range Safety
Treat every airgun as if it were loaded. Double-check it especially when receiving an airgun from someone else. Never point an airgun, either loaded or unloaded, at any person.
Always keep the airgun pointed in a safe direction, down the range. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are aiming at the target and about to shoot. Appropriate eye protection to be worn on the range at all times.
Airguns that are not in use should always be unloaded. No airgun is to be left unattended. Only cock or load an airgun when you are shooting at your chosen target.
If you encounter any problems with your airgun please mention this to the instructors before attempting to resolve the issue yourself. Do not rely on an airgun's safety.
Break barrels airguns, hold the barrel while loading! Underlever airguns, hold the lever while loading! Never leave an airgun unattended
Underlever airguns, hold the lever while loading! Do not ‘walk’ onto the range to reset or change targets etc. until all airguns have been unloaded, checked and placed on the shooting table unloaded and you have been given permission to do so.
