TIPS: Handgun Safety & Ownership for Women


WE ARE TALKING GUN
SAFETY THIS MORNING AND I’M WITH CHAMPION TARGET SHOOTER KIPPIE
LEATHAM OF SPRINGFIELD ARMORY. HERE TO ANSWER VIEWER QUESTIONS
FROM OUR BALANCING ACT FACEBOOK PAGE.
WELCOME BACK. THANK YOU!
GOOD TO BE HERE, OLGA. GREAT QUESTIONS LAST TIME.
THEY WERE. I’VE GOT TWO REALLY GOOD ONES
HERE. AND I’M REALLY GLAD THEY WROTE
THESE IN. SO, LAUREN FROM JUPITER, THANK
YOU LAUREN. SHE WRITES, “HOW DO YOU KNOW IF
THE GUN ISN’T LOADED?” GREAT QUESTION.
GREAT QUESTION. COME ON AROUND HERE SO WE ARE
NOT POINTING AT YOU. IT’S REAL EASY.
IF YOU HAVE A GUN, WITH A COOL FEATURE LIKE SPRINGFIELD’S XDM
LOADED CHAMBER INDICATOR, YOU CAN QUICKLY LOOK DOWN AND
VISUALLY SEE THAT THE GUN IS NOT LOADED.
THE LITTLE CHAMBER INDICATOR IS FLUSH WITH THE TOP OF THE SIDES.
THAT MEAN THERE IS NOT A ROUND IN IT.
BUT WE ARE GOING TO DOUBLE CHECK.
GOOD IDEA. OK?
SO, I’M GOING TO PICK UP THE GUN AND POINT IT IN OUR DOWN RANGE,
CHECK THAT THERE IS NO MAGAZINE IN IT.
AND THEN JUST VISUALLY PULL BACK THE SIDE REAL QUICK AND I CAN
LOOK INSIDE THERE AND SEE THAT THERE IS NOTHING IS THERE, OLGA.
ONCE YOU GET USED TO YOUR FIREARM, IT’S REAL EASY TO TELL.
GREAT ANSWER. OK.
D FROM FORT LAUDERDALE. THANK YOU D.
SHE WRITES, “I’M A LITTLE SCARED OF HAVING A GUN,” I CAN RELATE.
UNDERSTANDABLE. “BUT AS A SINGLE WOMEN, WHAT
KIND OF TRAINING SHOULD I GET AND WHAT KIND OF GUN?”
I RECOMMEND JUST STARTING WITH THE BASIC PISTOL CLASS.
THEY ARE GOING TO TEACH YOU THE BASIC FIREARM SAFETY RULES WHICH
EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW IF THEY ARE GOING TO OWN A GUN.
AND THEN THEY ARE GOING TO GO THROUGH THE VARIOUS BASIC
FUNDAMENTAL OPERATIONS OF THE GUN.
THEY MAY EVEN ALLOW YOU TO RENT A GUN.
OH! SO THAT YOU CAN TRY SOME BEFORE
YOU DECIDE REALLY WHAT YOU LIKE THE BEST.
THANK YOU SO MUCH. THANK YOU.
GREAT INFORMATION AS ALWAYS. I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU AS WELL.
IF YOU HAVE ANYMORE QUESTIONS RELATED TO THE SPORT OF TARGET
SHOOTING, SHE IS THE EXPERT. OR GUN SAFETY.
