Always wear adequate shooting glasses whenever you are shooting and make certain that persons close to you are similarly protected. In addition to the obvious hazard associated with pellets damaging eyes, unprotected eyes may be injured by ricochets and debris flying off the target or backstop.
Always aim your air rifle in a SAFE DIRECTION. When you are sure of your target and backstop, and the area around the target is clear, cock the air rifle, and pull the trigger to fire.
Do not shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. The pellet may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone or something you had not intended to hit.
Always choose your target carefully. It is best to shoot at paper bullseye targets which are attached to a safe backstop. A heavey blanket should be hung behind the Target Trap to prevent ricochet should you miss the backstop.
Your backstop should be checked for wear before and after each use. Replace your backstop if the surface is worn or damaged or if a ricochet occurs.
Your air rifle is designed for target shooting and is suited for both indoor and outdoor use. Always remeber to place your target carefully. Think about what you will hit if you miss the target.
The air rifle is correctly aimed when the front sight blade is positioned exactly in the notch of the rear sight. The top of the front sight blade should be even with the top of the notch in the rear sight. The top of the front sight blade should be even with the top of the notch in the rear sight. The bullseye should appear to rest on the top of the front sight.
