Principle 33 - Unloading a Gun

To unload a gun do the following steps
  • Assume the gun is loaded
  • Keep the muzzle pointed away from danger and your finger off the trigger
  • Put the safety on safe
  • Remove the magazine
  • If a tube magazine remove the shells or rounds
  • Open the action to remove any rounds in the chamber
  • Visually inspect the chamber to make sure no round is loaded
  • Lock the slide/action in the open position

    Get in the habit of doing this whenever you're given a gun.
