Careless and improper handling of this gun could result in unintended discharge causing injury, death or property damage. Safety must be the first and constant consideration when handling a firearm and ammunition. This shotgun was designed to function properly in its original condition. Alterations can make it unsafe. Do not alter any part or add or replace parts.
Shotguns should only be carried with the action open and chambers empty to prevent accidental discharge. Always handle and treat your gun as if it were loaded so you never fire it accidentally when you think it is unloaded. Never take anyone's word it is unloaded. Always check it yourself with your fingers off the trigger and the gun pointed in a safe direction.
Never place your finger inside the trigger guard unless you intend to fire. Water, snow, mud, excessive lubricating oil or grease or any other material can obstruct the barrel of your gun. Always check the barrel of your firearm for obstruction before loading and firing. Clean a fouled gun immediately to ensure its correct and safe function. Keep the gun's muzzle pointed in a safe direction at all times. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at any part of your body, another person or at anything you do not intend to shoot. Always be certain of your target before firing.
Firearms and ammunition should be safely stored separately so that they are inaccessible to children or Always make sure your gun is not loaded before cleaning, storing, or handing it to another person. Always wear safety glasses while shooting to protect your eyes from injury by gun powder, gas, lubricant, dirt or metallic particles, carbon residue, parks or other debris. Always wear ear protection when shooting, especially on a range. Without ear protection, the noise from your gun, and other guns close to you, could leave a "ringing" in the ears for some time after firing. Repeated exposure to shooting noise could result in permanent hearing loss. Never climb a tree, fence or wall while carrying a loaded firearm. Don't shoot at a hard surface, or at water. A pellet may ricochet and travel in unpredictable directions to strike you or an object you cannot see. Firearms and alcohol don't mix. Never drink alcoholic beverages or take drugs before or during shooting, as this constitutes criminal disregard for your safety and that of others. Never use a gun while you are taking medication unless you have checked with your doctor to ensure your fitness to handle your gun safely. If you have any doubts about your ability to handle or use this shotgun safely, seek supervised instruction. Horseplay has no place around firearms. Guns can't think, you can!
