Safety in Repeating Rifles

In repeating rifles safety is obtained by so constructing them that the hammer cannot be pulled down by any possible chance while the action is open, and different makers use various means for getting this result.

In the Marlin repeating rifle the firing-pin is cut in two and when the action is open and you are loading the gun the front end of the rear piece of the firing-pin drops into a slot in the breech-bolt and when it is in this position the gun cannot possibly be discharged.

The Winchester and Remington repeating rifles have what is known as a safety-catch, and when the action is open and you are loading the gun the catch prevents the trigger from being pulled and of course the hammer cannot strike the firing-pin.

Very nearly all the .22 hammerless guns that are now made are provided with a safety slide-button which is set directly in front of the trigger and under the gunner's thumb. This safety button locks the trigger, and you cannot pull the latter until you release it again. This provides a safety device which is just as efficient as the half-cock of the visible hammer guns.

The makers of guns have weeded out every chance for an accident to happen in so far as the construction of the gun is concerned, and if then an accident occurs it is dollars to doughnuts that it was caused by your carelessness and not by any fault of theirs.

Yes, while nearly every accident can be traced directly to the carelessness or the ignorance—which is just as bad—of the gunner, yet the fault may not alone be his, for he may never have been told or shown the right way to handle a gun.

But since " ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law " it is strictly up to you to learn how to handle a gun in a safe and sane way, and you will not only live to a ripe old age but you will let others live their allotted threescore and ten, that is, if the doctors don't decide otherwise.
