The Importance of Gun Safety When Storing Your Weapon 0

Posted on October 03, 2021 by Brooke Chaplan

After purchasing your first firearm, you’ll need to spend some time learning important safety strategies for using and storing your weapon. Even seasoned firearm owners can sometimes forget the best practices for safety, and it is worth reminding yourself of why proper storage methods can potentially save a life. Keeping these benefits of storing your gun safely in mind helps you remember to make the right decisions when you aren’t actively carrying your weapon.

Prevent Accidental Firings

The majority of firearm-related injuries occur due to accidents. You’ll want to make sure to store your weapon unloaded. It is also important to store your gun in a safe location where it won’t be dropped or accidentally triggered. For example, it is better to store your firearm in a small, portable safe by your bed rather than in a box on a high shelf.

Protect Children From Accessing Your Firearm

If you have children in your home, then keeping them away from your firearm is one of your biggest priorities. Even if you are child-free, it is best to be prepared just in case a little one visits your home. Make sure to determine the size of the safe you plan on getting if you decide to purchase a safe from online companies like Security Centers, Inc. Quality safes should be big enough to hold all of your firearms, and they’ll lock up tight so that you know your weapons are always secure from little hands.

After waiting for more than 30 years, he is finally earning his rightful place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the 2021 Hall of Fame Class.

      During his decade with the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson had a habit of making the big catch at the right moment to help the Cowboys time and again snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

      The favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, Pearson was widely recognized as one of the great receivers of his era. Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
