NSSF Ten Tips for Firearm Safety in Your Home
Posted by

NEWTOWN, Conn. — As part of its “S.A.F.E. Summer” campaign to focus attention on the importance of safe and responsible firearm handling and storage, the National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) today announced its “Top Ten” list of safety tips firearm owners should remember to help ensure they are taking responsible precautions with firearms in their home.

“Nearly all firearm accidents in the home can be prevented when gun owners take simple precautions, and proper storage is the number one way to help prevent accidents” said Steve Sanetti, NSSF president and CEO. “Anyone who is going to own a firearm should respect it and secure it when not in use to help prevent firearm accidents and misuse.”

NSSF’s Top Ten Safety Tips include:

  • Always keep the firearm’s muzzle pointed in a safe direction. A “safe direction” means that the gun is pointed so that even if an accidental discharge occurred, it would not result in injury.
  • Always keep your finger off the trigger until you actually intend to shoot. When handling a gun, rest your finger outside the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Don’t touch the trigger until you are actually ready to fire.
  • Firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use. Whenever you pick up a gun, such as when removing it from or returning it to storage, remember to point it in a safe direction and make sure it is unloaded.
  • Be sure you know how your firearm operates: read the manual on your firearm, know how to safely open and close the action of the firearm and know how to safely remove any ammunition from the firearm and its magazine.
  • Store your firearms in a locked cabinet, safe, gun vault or storage case when not in use, ensuring they are in a location inaccessible by children and cannot be handled by anyone without your permission.
  • Store your ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms.
  • Use a gun locking device that renders the firearm inoperable when not in use. A gun lock should be used as an additional safety precaution and not as a substitute for secure storage.
  • Make sure young people in your home are aware of and understand the safety guidelines concerning firearms. Have them sign the Project ChildSafe Pledge for young people–a reminder that if they find an unattended firearm in their home or a neighbor’s to not touch it, and tell an adult.
  • Always unload, clean and place your firearms in their secure storage location immediately after returning from a hunting trip or a day at the range.
  • Educate everyone in your family about firearms safety. Visit the Project ChildSafe website for safety information and to find out where to get a free firearm safety kit in your area.

The “SAFE” in “S.A.F.E. Summer” serves as an acronym for Secure your firearms when not in use; Be Aware of those around you who should not have unauthorized access to guns; Focus on your responsibility as a firearm owner; and Educate yourself and others about safe firearm handling and storage. The S.A.F.E. Summer campaign focuses on equipping gun owners take responsible action to help keep their families and communities safer, particularly while children are home from school and more likely to be unattended.

These tips and others tools and information about safe and responsible firearm storage are available at

NSSF launched Project ChildSafe® in 1998 (prior to 2003 the program was called Project HomeSafe) as a nationwide initiative to promote firearms responsibility and provide safety education to all gun owners. While children are a focus, Project ChildSafe is intended to help young people and adults practice greater firearm safety in the home. The program has provided more than 36 million free firearm safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five U.S. territories. That’s in addition to the more than 60 million free locking devices manufacturers have included with new firearms sold since 1998 and continue to do so today.

Project ChildSafe was originally supported by federal grants provided by the U.S. Department of Justice. Since 2008, when this funding was cut, the firearms manufacturing industry has solely funded the Project ChildSafe program through the members of NSSF.

A Growing Demand From Female Hunters and New Investor Proves a Bright Future For Próis Hunting & Field Apparel

In 2008 female hunters worldwide were awoken by the outspoken, fun and downright wacky team at Próis® Hunting & Field Apparel, shining a long-awaited spotlight on the need for women’s high-performance technical huntwear – made with no frills or fuss, just die-hard function for success in the field.  The growing demand for Próis gear over the years has been phenomenal. In fact, Próis now has a dedicated following (AKA the ‘Próis Posse’), and they will ‘sound off’ until the unicorns come home – or until you try Próis gear.  And, trust us – you won’t be disappointed.

The Próis fire continues to burn strong year after year and with the company’s new financial partner, the ‘Próis Posse’ is in a strong position to go after their ultimate goal: total female world domination.  And, why not?  This company has a stellar reputation for rapid growth. In fact, Próis has seen a 200% growth each year in business thanks to the growing demographic of die-hard female hunters.  And this awesome group of ladies has proven its growth.  According to the National Sporting Goods Association (NASGA), female participation in hunting rose 36 percent between 2001 and 2010, to a total of 2.4 million women hunters.  Plus, according to CBS News, the national total for female gun owners has doubled in the last decade, increasing to nearly 5 million women since 2001.  These impressive stats support the writings on the wall, which is women hunters currently are and will play an integral role in the future of hunting.

“The new partnership has allowed Próis to move full speed ahead including hitting the gas petal on production and adding three additional manufacturing facilities, all while maintaining bulk production right here in the U.S.,” said Kirstie Pike, President/CEO of Próis Hunting & Field Apparel.  ”Our team is super-creative (some call us wild and zany) and we’re excited to put our innovative plans into play – starting with enhancing our product line to feature the popular Mountain Mimicry camo pattern, as well as launch a robust line-up in 2014 that’s sure to take the hunting world by storm – you’ll have to stay tuned!”

Próis was created for women, by women and they are proud to serve as the premier manufacturer of hardcore women’s hunting gear.  Próis has also garnered a great following of men and women throughout the industry through their wacky shenanigans and humor.  Fondly called the Próis Posse, the Próis followers ramp up the craziness each day. Keep up with Manshoe, Bird Lady, Has3Ponies, Honey Badger and BunBun through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn.  Warning:  Próis social media is not for the faint of heart..and “your mom” is not really your‘s a metaphorical mom.

Made in America, Guest Blog by Jerry Vinnola
Posted by

This is a great sentiment by my husband Jerry about the new gun laws signed in Colorado today and what Made in America means to him. We have 4 grown kids and this says a lot about how they turned out to be such awesome adults. AGHG

There is nothing wrong with trying to raise a family under laws. We raised our children to understand that laws are to be obeyed. Many laws of this land were established to protect us like in the Bible and as a Christian family we are not ashamed of that. Our roots in America go  at least 9 generations deep. We love this Country that God and the Founding Fathers gave us. We are made in America like so many of you, and like you we believe in fair and true punishment for crimes.

None of us would punish all of our kids,let alone our grand-kids for what one of them did wrong. Especially if they did nothing wrong or worse yet punish them for something someone did that they don’t even know!  We would be locked up for child abuse!

The gun laws Colorado is now imposing on us is just this kind of punishment. I ask you how have we as a civilized nation come this point? I will be glad when this life is over and I stand before God that I only have to account for my own sins and not someone else who lives in another house down the road. We as a nation have forgotten that laws don’t raise a child but proper training, learning by example and caring about those in need.

Stop laws that do nothing and aren’t enforced anyway. Teach morals and values to our kids. Encourage them to lead their hearts in a Godly way, not to follow them.

God, Family and others including Country…let’s get back to that.

That is what Made in America means to me.
