important warning: failure to adhere to the rules of firearm safety can result in serious injury, DEATH, OR DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY.
IMPORTANT WARNING: IT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO RECEIVE PROPER TRAINING FROM A COMPETENT FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR OR AUTHORITY BEFORE BEGINNING TO SHOOT OR WHEN HANDLING THE FIREARM.
COMPLETELY READ AND UNDERSTAND YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL GUIDELINES BEFORE USING YOUR FIREARM.
You should fully understand the function of all of the components and mechanics of the firearm. Before you remove the firearm out of the box thoroughly read the owner’s manual on how to properly carry, handle, load, unload, and store your new firearm. Know the rules of proper gun safety and exercise them at all times because failure to do so may result in death or injury to yourself or others. Because it is impossible to list every firearm situation or scenario, be aware that certain circumstances may require additional safety rules unique to a particular situation. In these cases, we recommend that you use your best judgement.
always learn the specific mechanical and handling characteristics of your shotgun
All firearms are different thus it is important for you to understand how to properly carry, use, and handle each one according to its specific guidelines. Before using any firearm, one must completely familiarize themselves with the type of firearm and its specific safe handling procedures for loading, unloading and carrying.
NEVER GIVE THE SHOTGUN TO ANY PERSON WHO HAS NOT THOROUGHLY FAMILIARIZED HIMSELF OR HERSELF WITH ALL OF THE INFORMATION, SAFETY RULES, AND WARNINGS IN THE OWNER’S MANUAL
never alter or modify your shotgun
This shotgun was produced under specific manufacturer guidelines and should not be modified under ANY circumstances. Altering the trigger, mechanical components, safety mechanisms, or using any parts or accessories other than those that were provided in the original box with your gun or specifically recommended in this manual is NOT RECOMMENDED by the manufacturer, and could result death, bodily harm, or compromise your safety or the safety of others. Any alteration made to the firearm also voids the factory warranty.
ALWAYS KEEP THE FIREARM UNLOADED UNTIL READY TO USE
Firearms should be kept unloaded when not in use. Whenever you pick up a firearm, immediately engage the safety device and remove the magazine to visually inspect the chamber and confirm that it is clear. Always unload all ammunition from the chamber and remove the magazine after:
2.) Putting the firearm away
3.) Putting the firearm into a case
4.) When not in use
5.) When handing it to another person
ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION
It’s as simple as that, and it’s up to you. Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to shoot. The safe direction may be “up” on some occasions or “down” on others, but never pointed at anyone or anything not intended as a target.
KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND IT
Whether you are at the range or in the woods, if you’re going to shoot, you must know what lies beyond your target. In almost all cases, you must be sure that there is something that will serve as a backstop to capture projectiles that miss or go through the target.
A GUN OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY
As the owner of a firearm you have the responsibility and obligation of ensuring that any and all shooting activities are safe for everyone. This requires your personal commitment to carefully read, fully understand, and exercise the principles of proper firearm safety at all times. If this is the first shotgun you have ever owned, or if you have limited experience with firearms, please visit your local shooting range and ask a trained professional to provide you with hands on training and tutorial. Doing this will improve your confidence and safety when using your firearm.
THE FIREARM TO WHICH THESE SAFETY RULES APPLY IS SOLD UNDER THE EXPRESS RESULTING CONDITION THAT THE MANUFACTURER ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY IN PART OR WHOLE FOR BODILY INJURY, DEATH, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE FROM:
• IMPROPERLY OR CARELESSLY HANDLING THE FIREARM.
• USING DEFECTIVE , IMPROPER CALIBER, HAND-LOADED, OR RELOADED AMMUNITION.

• OR ANY OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES OUTSIDE THE MANUFACTURER’S DIRECT OR IMMEDIATE CONTROL.
always store your firearm in a secure storage area to prevent unauthorized access
GForce Arms, Inc. recommends storing your firearm in a safe made specifically for firearms. Metal gun safes are recommended over open racks or glass front cabinets. In the case that a safe is not available for use, there are aftermarket trigger locking devices that can also be used to ensure that the firearm is unusable before storing in a conspicuous location such as a closet shelf, or other location out of plain view that is high enough to be out of the reach of young children. GForce Arms, Inc. also recommends that ammunition is stored in a separate location from the firearm. Never store a firearm loaded or with ammunition in the magazine.
• Leave a loaded gun unattended, propped up against a surface, or out of your hands.
• Assume a firearm is unloaded, even if you used it last. Always check to make sure that there is no ammunition and the chamber is clear.
• Load a cartridge into the chamber until you are ready to fire.
• Carry or transport your firearm with live ammunition in the chamber.
• Pass a firearm to another person or accept a firearm from another person, until the cylinder or action is open and you have personally checked that the weapon is completely unloaded.
• Haul a loaded firearm openly or in a carrying case.
• Never transfer or hand a loaded firearm to someone else.
always keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot
When holding the firearm be sure to rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun.
• Touch the trigger until you are ready to fire.
• Engage in horseplay while handling a firearm.
• Rely on the safety devices of the gun. Mechanical safeties are never foolproof and can wear out and malfunction.
always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction
A safe direction is one in which an accidental discharge cannot or would not cause injury or harm to yourself or others. Use extreme caution especially when loading and unloading your firearm. When handling any firearm always treat it as if it was loaded and ready to fire, even if you think it is empty. The recommended carrying position of your shotgun is with the hammer in de-cocked position.
• Point your firearm at anything you don’t intend to shoot.
• Use a firearm under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any other substances that may impair your judgment, skills, or physical abilities.
• Target shoot or hunt with a firearm when you are fatigued or too tired to operate the firearm safely.
