FIREARMS STUDENT CANDIDATE FORM
The use of firearms is an exciting and safe sport, provided that common sense rules are followed. The instructor has distilled the approximately ten safety rules into four basic ones that I will MEMORIZE before being allowed to participate in live-fire range exercises. If the following rules are obeyed, all participants will have a safe and pleasurable experience. Inversely, if they are not, injury or death can result. I will read, understand, and commit to memory the following rules. I will obey them at ALL TIMES. I understand that failure to obey any of these rules can result in my immediate expulsion from the class and the range.
I will repeat the rules underneath the printed version in my own handwriting to show that I understand, and will memorize and obey them.
- I will ALWAYS keep the firearm pointed in a safe direction.
- I will ALWAYS keep my finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
- I will ALWAYS keep the firearm unloaded until ready to use.
- I will ALWAYS know my target and what is beyond.
While on the range, I will obey these rules. Also, I will immediately notify the offending party and the instructor and/or range safety officer if I observe any of these rules being broken by anyone at any time. If there is any confusion about the rules or anything else, I will immediately stop what I am doing, take my finger off the trigger, point my firearm downrange, and raise my hand to ask the instructor’s help.
I understand that the discharge of firearms releases lead, the buildup of which can cause health problems, I will WASH MY HANDS, FACE, and CLOTHES as soon after discharging firearms as is practical, particularly before eating or drinking. If I am pregnant, I will not participate in any live-fire range activities for the same reasons.
