Oklahoma City’s Premium Gun Safety Rules

Keep Your Family Safe with Gun Safety Rules

 At H&H Shooting Sports, we believe proper gun safety is everyone’s safety. This is why we’ve pulled together three gun safety rules to help keep families throughout Oklahoma City, OK, safe and secure. We encourage you to reach out if you need help securing your firearms or would like any additional advice.


Ensure Your Firearms are Properly Secured

There are several options available for properly storing firearms in your home. Each step you take helps reduce the likelihood that your children or anyone in your home will get injured due to accidents if they come across your gun. One of the best methods is to store your unloaded firearms in a safe or lockbox, separate from the ammunition. Whether your storage system is opened by a key or series of digits, ensure only those trained and responsible have access to your gun storage. It’s also important to consider your kid’s natural curiosity. Kids are more intelligent than we give them credit for. Removing the ammunition, locking all ammunition separately, and leaving the safety on are all ways to help kid-proof your firearms. Here are some popular options to properly store your firearms:

  • Gun Safe
  • Trigger Locks
  • Lock Box for Ammunition
  • Cable Lock
  • Gun Case

Talk to Your Kids About Gun Safety Rules

Safely storing firearms is the first step to establishing good gun safety rules. The next step should be to educate your family on firearms. As mentioned, children are incredibly curious, and if anything seems off-limits or something they shouldn’t play with, it may become extremely interesting to them. These conversations should include the dangers of mishandling guns and what to do if they find one. Having repeated conversations can help instill gun safety in kids. If your family is old enough, we suggest taking advantage of our gun safety course. Our gun safety courses are led by seasoned instructors who will review all basic firearm safety rules. Each course combines classroom presentations and live-fire exercises.

Establish Gun Safety Rules for Your Home

Whether you’re a hunter or you enjoy target practice, we believe it’s important for everyone to have a basic understanding of how to handle a firearm safely. When combined with our other gun safety tips, being aware of how to handle a firearm properly keeps everyone safe. Discussing and establishing gun safety rules for your family can lead to a lifetime of respect for firearms. Household rules should include precautions such as:

  • Treat all firearms as if they are loaded
  • Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire
  • Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it
