Weapon & Security
THE MAIN SECURITY RULE
Safety concerns all persons within the scope of practice of a shooting range, shooters, monitors, referees, managers and spectators. We must respect it and apply its rules, taking into account the regulations
A weapon must ALWAYS be considered CHARGED and as such must NEVER be directed towards oneself or anyone.
The weapon (security definitions)
Supply Weapon: A weapon that contains one or more ammunition but is not ready to fire.
Weapon loaded: a munition is engaged in the chamber of the weapon.
Note: the arbitration command LOAD! means to the shooter that he has the authorization to introduce a munition into the chamber and to arm the mechanism of relaxation!
Weapon ready to shoot: a weapon whose action on the trigger tail kicks off.
Weapon that is out of supply: A weapon that no longer contains ammunition, because the magazine has been removed, the magazine, chamber or barrel emptied of ammunition.
Assured weapon or security: a weapon that has been disarmed and which has:
open, and kept the mechanism open (open cylinder head or tilted barrel, broken guns),
visually and physically controlled the lack of ammunition (room and liftboard in some cases).
Never trust only the mechanical safety of the weapons, moreover a weapon must never be manipulated or closed brutally.
In shooting sport, we call "weapon", any material ensuring the propulsion of one or more successive projectiles.
These weapons are mainly classified in:
handguns: one-shot pistols, semi-automatic pistols and revolvers,
long guns: crossbows, rifles and rifles.
