Safety Information & Disclaimer

Firearm Safety

Drinking alcohol and handling firearms at the same time is not endorsed, or encouraged by this author. Do not drink and handle firearms! Do not drink and reload ammunition! Anyone who does these things, does them at their own peril, but also at the peril of their loved ones, neighbors, and innocent passersby.

Safety is key whenever firearms are being handled, fired, modified, or when loading ammunition, handling powders, primers or ANY combustible material.

The NRA Gun Safety Rules is a comprehensive list of recommendations for overall safety. Agreement with their agenda is not required to use it as a resource. Other sources are available on the Internet, in most gun manuals, and in many published works.

Owning ANY deadly weapon comes with a great deal of responsibility! Guns and other weapons should be kept out of the reach of children, the insane, the suicidal, and the untrained. Guns that are not under the immediate control of the owner  should be locked up in a safe or steel gun cabinet. It is the opinion of this author that ANY weapon left unattended and unlocked, even if hidden, demonstrates the owner’s lack of intelligence! The only weapons that should be unlocked are the ones under the owner’s direct control, period!

When handling firearms there are four basic rules that should always be followed:

1. Always keep the barrel pointed in a safe direction.

2. Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.

3. Always keep your finger off the trigger and outside of the trigger well until ready to shoot.

4. Always be aware of your target and what is behind it.

Other Notes and Safety

Remington’s Safe Reloading Procedures is a complete list of rules for safe reloading. Other lists are available from many component manufacturers and are included in any good reloading guide. In addition to these rules, use common sense if possible.

Safety is key when using power tools, cutting tools, or chemicals. Observe safety procedures as prescribed by the tool manufacturer, and if possible–use common sense. Do not drink or use drugs before working with tools or chemicals!

For chemical products such as corrosives, finishes, polishes, and cleaning products read all safety information and take appropriate steps to observe the safety precautions to the letter! Make sure that any work areas are free of clutter, capable of being well ventilated when necessary, and are far away from food stuffs, pets, children, the elderly,  pregnant women, and living areas.

When purchasing safety equipment such as respirators, eye protection, or chemical resistant gloves purchase only well regarded, quality products.
