Gun Safety: Pump Action Shotgun : Gun Safety: Pump Action Shotgun Open & Safe Pump


In this clip I want to show you how to open
and safe your pump action shotgun. The pump action shotgun has a slide stop which is on
the side of the trigger guard. Now regarding what kind of shotgun you have, that slide
stop may be some other place, but the majority of the shotguns today are all along the side
of the trigger group right here. The–in order to open and safe this action, and as you notice
I don’t, the action is currently closed and I don’t know if it’s unloaded or not, so we’re
going to treat it as though it is. We treat all firearms as though they’re loaded. In
order to open and safe this action, what I’m going to do is I’m going to push up on the
slide stop right here, and then I’ll pull back on the slide, which will open the action.
Now if there was a round inside the chamber, that round would have spilled out on the cover
here. That is considered opened and safe. And that is how you open and safe your pump
action shotgun.
