It is absolutely crucial that every shooter be taught gun safety, whether they are shooting an airsoft gun or a firearm. Bottom line is that all guns are dangerous if they are not used properly, however with a little education we can all avoid the dangers that come along with shooting.
Now I know most people don’t jump out of their seats when they hear the word education, most of us connect that with sitting in a dimly lit room studying material that is dry as dust. We feel that the best approach to learning gun safety is to go out and shoot! Of course you should reinforce that by reading safety materials like this one we put together, O2Guns Safety Guide. But you really can’t beat the experience of going out shooting with experience shooters. If the shooters are truly experience then their gun safety at that point will come naturally, and with a little guidance they can share that knowledge with you.
For all of you with youngsters I suggest you get an airgun in their hands at a young age, with extreme supervision of course. I have many great memories plinking in the back yard with my dad and brothers, little did I know at the time that he was really teaching us the proper way to handle any kind of gun. By the time I was old enough to handle guns on my own it all came naturally.
Im sure some of you are thinking that anyone with half a brain can pick up a gun and know how to safely handle it. Please don’t make that assumption, educate yourself and those around you and you will have years of safe and enjoyable shooting. Here are some great airguns for beginners and also a few great safely products we offer at O2Guns.
