Straight Shooting on Safety


Texans love to hunt. There’s suspense and excitement and escape from the daily routine. Here are the “10 commandments” of shooting safety:
  • Always point the muzzle of your gun in a safe direction.
  • Treat every firearm or bow with the same respect you would show a loaded gun or nocked arrow.
  • Be sure of your target.
  • Unload firearms and unstring conven­tional bows when not in use.
  • Know your safe zone-of-fire and stick to it.
  • Handle firearms, arrows and ammunition with care.
  • Control your emotions when using weapons.
  • Wear hearing and eye protection.
  • Don’t consume alcohol or drugs before or while handling firearms or bows.
  • Never use electrical insulators and transformers as targets, or power or communication lines. Gunfire is detrimental to power lines and fiber optic equipment and can result in thousands of dollars in damage.
BEC encourages you to always practice safety.
