Safety

Safety can never be stressed too much, and with the ACTA a firearm is always treated as loaded unless seen to be different. You, the individual, become the safety catch of all firearms and everything else on the firearm becomes a mechanical device. It is therefore essential that safe firearm handling becomes the first rule for all participants.

  1. Treat any firearm with the respect due to a loaded gun.
  2. Never point a firearm in fun or jest.
  3. Carry the firearm so that you can control the barrel even if you stumble.
  4. Become the safety catch of the firearm.
  5. Load the firearm only when it is your turn to shoot.
  6. Always unload when the red flag is shown or at the referee’s command.
  7. Ensure you have the correct calibre cartridge for the gun in use.
  8. Do not play with or modify firearm mechanisms.
  9. If a firearm misfires keep the barrels to the front and wait for the referee.
  10. Firearms and alcohol do not, and never will, mix.

Safety is your responsibility, not someone else’s
