Airgun Safety Guidelines

Make safety your most important priority when handling, transporting, storing, and shooting airguns. Make it a routine to follow all the rules of safe gun handling. Always be aware of the airgun, your surroundings, and those people around you.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO PARENTS TRADITIONAL AIRGUNS THAT SHOOT LEAD PELLETS AND STEEL BBS ARE NOT TOYS. Personal injury or death can result from improper handling if a pellet or BB strikes someone in a vulnerable spot. We are concerned that all users learn to use AIRGUNS properly without injury to themselves or others. You may be able to obtain further information for instruction in shooting from one or more of the following groups: Boy Scouts of America, National Rifle Association, conservation clubs, gun clubs, 4-H Clubs, or hunter safety groups.

  1. Adult supervision is ALWAYS required when any type of AIRGUN is in use
  2. ALWAYS know your state and local laws concerning the use of AIRGUNS
  3. ALWAYS treat the AIRGUN as though it is loaded and ready to fire
  4. ALWAYS treat AIRGUN with the same respect you would a firearm
  5. ALWAYS store the AIRGUN unloaded and away from children
  6. ALWAYS aim in a SAFE DIRECTION
  7. ALWAYS keep the muzzle of the AIRGUN pointed in a SAFE DIRECTION
  8. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until ready to shoot
  9. ALWAYS keep the AIRGUN "ON SAFE" until you are ready to shoot
  10. ALWAYS check to see if the AIRGUN is "ON SAFE" and unloaded when removing it from storage
  11. ALWAYS check to see if the AIRGUN is "ON SAFE" and unloaded when handing it to, or receiving it from another person
  12. ALWAYS have you and others wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes
  13. ALWAYS wear shooting glasses over eye glasses or prescription glasses
  14. ALWAYS place a shooting backstop in a location that will be safe should the backstop fail
  15. ALWAYS check your backstop for wear before and after each use. All backstops are subject to wear and will eventually fail. Replace your backstop if the surface is worn or damaged, or if a ricochet occurs
  16. ALWAYS use the proper size ammunition in your AIRGUN. Check the markings on your AIRGUN to verify the ammo size
  17. NEVER point the AIRGUN at any person or at anything you do not intend to shoot
  18. NEVER reuse ammunition
  19. NEVER shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. The ammo may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone or something you had not intended to hit
  20. NEVER attempt to disassemble or tamper with your AIRGUN. Use an Authorized Service Station. Using an unauthorized service or repair center, or modifying the function of your AIRGUN in any way, may be unsafe and will void your warranty
  21. NEVER change the coloration and markings of an AIRGUN to make it look more like a firearm
  22. NEVER brandish or display an AIRGUN in public - Police officers and others may think it is a firearm
