Firearm Storage Program

General Firearm Safety Tips:
Keep all firearms locked in a safe place away from children and other unauthorized persons.
Store ammunition under lock and key separately from firearms.
Read and understand the owner’s manual that came with your firearm.
Follow safe gun handling practices: keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, keep fingers off the trigger, and keep the firearm unloaded when not in use.

Remember: Whenever you pick up a gun, always assume the firearm is loaded and keep the gun pointed in a safe direction and check to ensure the firearm is unloaded!
