May 9, 2008, Newsletter Issue #77: Hunting Safety Rules for Air Guns

Tip of the Week

Air guns are regulated under State and Federal firearm regulations. It is the buyer’s responsibility to abide by all laws and regulations. Some states require a permit to buy an air gun. The same hunting safety rules that apply to handling bolt-action rifles and revolvers apply to handling air guns. Air guns should be unloaded before putting them down, storing them, or while in transport. Hunters need to sight on-target before pulling the trigger to avoid hitting livestock and hikers. Carry revolvers in a holster when not in use. Carry a laser target device that can judge distances to prevent wounding animals. Do not roughhouse while carrying a loaded air gun. A loaded air gun can kill at any distance.
