What to Know As a Gun Owner in Omaha

Written by Big Red Locksmiths on . Posted in Blog

Being a gun owner in Omaha comes with certain responsibilities. It also means that you’re part of a community. Given that more than one-third of residents in the state of Nebraska own a gun, there’s a lot of useful information that owners can share and learn from each other. With that in mind, we want to do our part to cover key information about the best way to store firearms and how to safely handle a gun.

How to Stay Safe While Shooting

The first thing to know and teach about staying safe while shooting is to always keep the muzzle pointed in a direction that’s safe. Far too many accidents have happened because people get sloppy after thinking a gun is empty or the safety is on. Speaking of being empty, it is best to unload a firearm when it’s not being used. And while using the safety is a smart choice during a shooting session, never assume that it alone will keep you safe.

Many gun owners in Omaha enjoy target shooting. If you do as well, it’s important to be sure of your target prior to shooting. Being sure of your target includes knowing what’s beyond it. When it doubt, it’s always worth double-checking since a shot isn’t something that can be taken back once it leaves a gun.

Prior to heading out for a shooting session, make sure you have the correct ammunition for your specific firearm. And if your gun fails to fire at any point during your shooting when the trigger is pulled, handle it with extra caution. It’s also a very good idea to wear both ear and eye protection when you’re shooting.

Storage Advice for Every Gun Owner in Omaha

In addition to having your gun serviced regularly, it’s vital to have a safe place to store it. The best storage option for any gun owner in Omaha is a safe. By choosing a gun safe that offers all the features you need, you can enjoy complete peace of mind when your firearm is stored away. There are quite a few different options for gun safes and vaults, which is why Big Red Locksmiths will be happy to help you select the ideal one for your specific needs.
