  3. Always wear protective gear, this includes, hearing and eye protection.
  4. Identify your target make sure nothing is beyond it.
  5. Treat all firearms as if loaded, never under any circumstances point it at another individual unless your life is under threat and you intend to engage.
  6. No one is to handle any firearm unless on the shooters line, and the draw, load and lock command has been given. (This is a range rule, if in a self defense situation, common sense would need to be applied)
