Rules for Safety in Loading a Gun

Rule I.—In loading your gun hold it so that the muzzle of it points toward the ground and about a yard away from your feet.

Rule II.—If you are loading a single-shot gun set the trigger at half-cock, open the breech, and then slip in a cartridge. Close the breech and let the gun stay at half-cock until the moment before you are ready to aim. By following this rule the cartridge simply can't go off accidentally.

Rule III.—The moment you have pulled the trigger and the hammer has hit the firing-pin and exploded the cartridge pull the hammer back to half-cock.

The only time when a gun should be at full-cock is at the instant of firing; at all other times the hammer should be at half-cock, or safety, as it is called.

Rule IV.—(a) All repeating guns are of course at full-cock when you have worked the action for the purpose of reloading them. Unless you are shooting one shot rapidly after another do not leave it at full-cock. (b) To set a repeater at halfcocked grasp the hammer firmly with the thumb and gently pull the trigger with your index, or trigger finger; hold the hammer tight and let it down from full-cock to half-cock. This operation should be practiced with an empty gun until you have the knack of it down fine.
