Safety:   Always Remember that your Airgun is not a toy!



It is a real, functional gun! Always observe all of the proper handling and safety procedures of a live firearm. Before you shoot any airgun, read and understand the instruction manual and all of the airgun's functions.

It is essential that all airgun users understand the proper handling and functions of their airguns.

For more information on gun safety or training, contact the NRA at 703-267-1430. If you don't understand, or are not sure about the use of an airgun or firearm feel free to email us at sales@aristaflag.com

Daisy Outdoor Products' Ten Shooting Safety Rules (Taken Courtesy Daisy Product Brochures and website)

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. 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. 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.
