It's all smoke and mirrors until someone gets hurt

Any prop gun with a bullet loaded in it is suspect in my opinion. To accept the word of someone handing you a gun and saying it's safe would be stupid.

When I a in the pommie army in the fifties we used to guard our workshops. We were armed with a 303 and blanks. The gypsies used to raid the area so we used to put a pencil up the spout and some were hit with the pencil. It didn't kill them but they stood out to the local police.

I'm the range officer for the pistol section of our gun club and there are so many safety procedures on and off the range, which makes it almost impossible for some one to mishandle or load a gun on or off the range, unless they are at the firing line. We have to remember, we are dealing with the USA and when it comes to guns, it's a free for all. The gun that killed the lady, was being used by staff for target practise during breaks in filming and again we are dealing with yanks and gun safety is the last priority on their minds.

It's not rocket science, even an American could get it.

 

  • Treat every gun as if it's loaded
  • Never point a gun at a person unless you want to kill them
  • If anyone hands you a gun that you're not planning on actually firing, make it safe, open the action and check the breech is clear, and remove any ammunition.  Even after that, follow the first two points.

Brothers and Sisters, I say unto you, "If it is not in the Book of the Lord, it is the work of the Evil One. Even the Lord called on his apostles to sell a cloak and buy a sword and guard him on the night before his Passion."

But they don't, there are over 115000 accidental shootings in the USA a year, lots of those are kids that find loaded guns and start playing with them, killing or maiming others. Considering the yanks slaughter almost 40000 of their citizens with guns a year, proves they don't have any gun sense. If a yank buys a gun they load it almost straight away and it stays loaded through its life. In this country, guns and ammunition must be stored separately from each other in locked safes and we have regular inspections of or guns, safes and security systems. On our range you aren't allowed to put guns and ammo in the same place  unless you are on the firing line, this is strictly enforced, same as alcohol is never allowed on ranges and at club events, all arms must be locked and secured in vehicles before socialisation starts and that's always checked.
