How to Carry a Loaded Gun Safely

When you are carrying a loaded gun, as for instance when roving—that is, going across country and shooting at various marks as you come to them—or when hunting, note the following safety rules.

Rule I.—The safest way to carry a gun is to hold it in your hand by the balance, or middle of the rifle, that is at the action allowing the comb of the stock—that is, upper edge of it—to rest against your armpit and with the barrel projecting out and down in front of you, the whole gun being at such an angle that should it go off accidentally the bullet would hit the ground 3 or 4 feet in front of you.

The military style of carrying a gun is to rest it on your right shoulder, or at shoulder arms as it is called. The butt is grasped in the right hand and the gun is held at an angle of about 45 degrees, so that the barrel points well up toward the sky, and this is also a safe way.

Rule II.—Never carry your gun loaded unless you are hunting, and then always carry it at halfcocked. If your gun is at full-cock and you should slip up or fall down or stub your toe and something should strike the hammer the gun might be discharged and you or your shooting partner or someone else would be very likely to get hurt.
