TIPS: Handgun Safety & Ownership for Women


WE’RE TALKING GUN SAFTEY THIS MORNING, AND
I’M WITH DAWN WEHUNT OF SPRINGFIELD ARMORY HERE TO ANSWER A COUPLE OF VIEWER QUESTIONS
WE RECEIVED ON FACEBOOK. GOOD MORNING! GOOD MORNING!
THANKS FOR COMING BACK–. THANK YOU.
–BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, THESE QUESTIONS I REALLY LOVE AND ONE OF THEM IS ON THE TOP OF MY LIST.
YOU READY? YES.
AMY FROM DETROIT–AMY, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR WRITING–SHE PUT HERE, “WHERE IS THE BEST
PLACE TO KEEP MY GUN AT NIGHT SO IT’S SAFE BUT STILL HANDY?” THAT’S AWESOME!
WELL, WHAT I HAVE HERE IS A HANDGUN SAFE. IT IS ACCESSIBLE BY EITHER A KEY FOB–.
OH! HANDGUN’S THERE, READY TO ROLL. THIS GUN,
OF COURSE, IS NOT LOADED, BUT IF IT WAS IN, YOU KNOW, YOUR HOME, YOU’D WANT TO HAVE IT
LOADED AND READY TO GO AND YOU JUST TAKE THE GUN OUT, EASY ACCESS. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO
USE THE KEY FOB, YOU CAN PROGRAM IT FOR UP TO FOUR DIGITS IN A DIFFERENT CODE AND HIT
ENTER ON THAT AS WELL. YOU KNOW WHAT I REALLY LIKE ABOUT THIS IS
ONE OF MY BIGGEST CONCERNS IS ALWAYS THE CHILDREN, AND WHERE TO KEEP A GUN–.
CORRECT. –SO THIS REALLY, I MEAN, IT’S HANDS OFF!
YES. AND IF YOU HAVE IT PROGRAMMED WITH YOUR CODE ON IT, ABSOLUTELY, THEY WOULD NOT BE
ABLE TO GET INTO IT. VERY HARD, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE. OKAY, LAUREL,
FROM JUPITER. THANK YOU, LAUREL. “HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY GUN AND WHAT’S THE SAFEST
PLACE TO DO SO?” I WOULD RECOMMEND CLEANING YOUR FIREARM AFTER
EVERY USE. OKAY.
DEFINITELY FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS WHICH ARE LISTED IN THE FIREARM’S MANUAL.
AS FAR AS THE SAFEST PLACE, PROBABLY A GARAGE OR A SAFE WORK AREA AND THEN REMEMBER, ALWAYS
TREAT THE FIREARM AS IF IT’S LOADED AND NEVER POINT IT AT ANYTHING YOU DON’T PLAN ON DESTROYING.
AND IF THE CHILDREN ARE HOME, I WOULD PROBABLY ADD, WAIT TIL THEY LEAVE.]
EXACTLY. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
