Course Outline

Even something as simple as loading or unloading a firearm can result in tragedy if it isn’t done properly. To load a firearm safely:

  • Point the muzzle in a safe direction.
  • Open the action; make sure the barrel is unobstructed.
  • Put the safety on if the firearm can be loaded with the safety on.
  • Load the ammunition.
  • Close the action.
  • Put the safety on if you were not able to do so before loading.
