3 Statutory GuidelinesApplicants must complete familiarity instruction with firearms.Understand safe loading, unloading, storage, and carrying of a concealed weapon.Understand current laws regarding CCW *
4 Handgun Safety RulesWhat is the primary cause of firearm related accidents?IGNORANCECARELESSNESS *
5 ELEMENTS OF FIREARM SAFETY Positive AttitudeKnowledgeSkill *
6 FOUR BASIC GUN SAFETY RULES Treat all firearms as if they are loadedAlways keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to fire.Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.Before the decision to fire, be sure of your target, your target’s environment and any other safey hazards *
7 OTHER SAFETY/RANGE RULES Know your target and what is beyond.Know how to use the firearm safely.Be sure the firearm is safe to operate.Use only the correct ammunitionWear eye and ear protectionNEVER use alcohol or drugsStore all firearms so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons, i.e. children, restricted persons, etc.Never handle a handgun in an emotional state such as angerKeep the firearm unloaded until ready for use *
8 OTHER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS Be a knowledgeable gun handler and user.Before starting to clean a gun, be certain is it not loaded.Cleaning a gun also provides an opportunity to check the proper function of the gun.Always be sure the barrel is free of obstructions.When handing a pistol to another person, always be sure that the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction, your finger is off the trigger, the action is open, magazine has been removed and the chamber is empty *
9 OTHER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS Carry only one type of ammo to avoid mixing different types.If in possesion of an old or antique firearm, or gun that is a military souvenir, be sure that it is unloaded.Never fire at surfaces that can cause a bullet to ricochet, such as water, or hard flat surfaces.If a cartridge fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction; don’t attempt to open the action to remove the cartridge for at least 30 seconds. *
10 OTHER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS If anything unusual is noticed when a shot is fired, such as a difference in recoil or in noise, immediately do the following:Stop firing immediately.Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.Keep your finger off the trigger.Unload the gun and check to be sure the chamber is empty; andVisually inspect the barrel for obstructions. *
11 PERMIT HOLDERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN AND OTHER OCCUPANTS IN THEIR HOME ABOUT FIREARM SAFETY *
12 ResponsibilityThe permit holder should be a positive role model for their children.Children should be taught the difference between television, toys and real life.Children should be taught what to do if they come across a firearm without an adult present:StopDon’t TouchLeave the areaTell a responsible adult *
13 HANDGUN PARTS AND OPERATION Revolver and Semi Auto FRAME: The frame of the revolver and semi-automatic is the backbone to which all other parts are attached.GRIP PANELS-Grip portion of the grip frame.BACKSTRAP-Rear vertical portion of frame.TRIGGER GUARD-Trigger protection to reduce unintentional firing.SIGHTS-Front and rear sights used for aiming *
14 HANDGUN PARTS AND OPERATION Revolver and Semi Auto BARREL: The barrel is a metal tube through which a bullet passes on its way to the target.BORE-Inside the barrel.RIFLINGS-Combination of lands and grooves which adds flight stability.CALIBER-The distance between the lands *
15 HANDGUN PARTS AND OPERATION ACTION-Group of moving parts used to load, fire and unload the pistol (Revolver/Auto)REVOLVER:TRIGGER-When the trigger is pulled, it activates the hammer which in turn causes the firing pin to strike and fire the cartridge.CYLINDER-Holds cartridges in individual chambers arranged in a circular pattern. Each time the hammer moves to the rear, the cylinder turns and brings a new chamber to line with the barrel and firing pin.CYLINDER RELEASE LATCH-Releases the cylinder and allows it to swing out so that cartriges can be loaded and unloaded.TWO TYPES OF REVOLVER ACTIONSSingle Action-Trigger performs only one action, releases the hammer, firing the pistolDouble Action-Trigger performs two tasks. Cocks and releases the hammer, firing the pistol *
16 HANDGUN PARTS AND OPERATION ACTION-Semi AutomaticsSLIDE-Upon intial loading of all semi-automatics, the first cartridge must always be manually cycled into the firing chamber by retracting the slide and then releasing it. As the slide returns to the closed position, it removes a cartridge from the top of the magazine and inserts in into the chamber.MAGAZINE-The magazine is a storage device designed to hold cartridges ready for insertion into the chamber.MAGAZINE RELEASE-A device that releases the magazine so that it can be removed from the pistol.TRIGGER-When the trigger is pulled, it activates the hammer (or internal firing mechanism) which when released, causes the firing pin to strike and fire the cartridge. The slide moves to the rear ejecting the empty cartridge case and usually cocking the pistol in the process. The cartridges in the magazine are forced upward by the magazine spring into the path of the slide. When the slide moves forward, it picks up and pushes the top cartridge into the chamber. *
17 THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF AUTOMATICS: SINGLE Action-1911-The trigger performs a single task, releasing the external hammer or the internal firing device so that the firing pin hits the cartridge.DOUBLE/SINGLE Action-Beretta-The trigger performs two tasks, It cocks the external hammer for the first shot, and also releases the external hammer. After the first shot is fired the movement of the slide on ejection of the spent cartridge will cock the external hammer. With these mechanisms cocked, all successive shots will be single action.DOUBLE ACTION only-Glock-The trigger will cock and release the external hammer or internal firing mechanism on the first shot and successive shots *
18 DEMONSTRATIONS OF THE FOLLOWING: How to check both revolvers and semi-autos to ensure proper function of the firing mechanism and safety.Explanation and demonstration of safe loading, cocking, uncocking, and unloading procedures for both revolvers and semi automatics.Familiarize yourself with the owner’s manual.Know and be familiar with cylinder rotation direction of revolvers….especially yours. *
19 AMMUNITIONTYPES OF CARTRIDGESCENTER-FIRERIM FIRE *
20 AMMUNITION COMPONENTS OF CARTRIDGES CASE-Metal cylinder (usually made of brass) that is closed on one end and contains other components such as a primer, powder and bullet.PRIMER-An impact sensitive chemical compound used for ignition.Rimfire-The primer is contained in the inside rim of the case’s base.Centerfire-The primer is contained in a small metal cup and is located in the center of the case’s base.POWDER CHARGE-A fast burning chemical compound used as a propellant and is contained inside the body of the case.BULLET-A projectile, usually made of lead and sometimes covered with a layer of copper or other metal, and is located at the mouth of the case.WAD (Shotgun Only)-Plastic cup inside a shotgun cartridge used to contain the shot or projectile for use in a shotgun *
21 CARTRIDGE FIRING SEQUENCE Pulling the trigger of the pistol will cause the firing pin to hit and ignite the primer.The flame generated by the primer ignites the powder in the cartridge.The powder burns very rapidly and produces a high volume of gas.These expanding gases push the bullet out of the cartridge case and propel it out of the pistol barrel at a high rate of speed FPS *
22 Ammo Safety Guidelines Inspect ammunition for safety flaws and imperfections.Understand range capabilities of ammunition.Remember rule #4-Be sure of your target and behind it.Discussion about dangerous capabilities of pistol ammo.Be sure to use the proper caliber ammunition with the gun to be fired.380 vs 9mm38 vs 357 magnum45 long colt vs 410 shotgun *
23 Ammo Safety Guidelines cont’d Defensive Ammunition Reliability-The ability of a firearm to consistently chamber, fire, extract and eject a particular load without malfunctions.Controllability-The ability to fire multiple rounds and still manage recoil and maintain accuracy.Stopping Power-The ability of a cartridge to quickly incapacitateAn assailant or otherwise cause an assailant to stop his attack.Accuracy-Ability of the gun and ammunition combination to shoot to the point of aim indicated by the sights.Muzzle Flash-When in excess will impair night vision and illuminate your position.Hollow-points-They open up and expand upon impact. This more efficently transfers energy and also prevents over penetration or complete penetration that could endanger the lives of others *
24 LET’S TALK ABOUT PRACTICE AMMO Non-expanding-Typical full metal jacket. Involves greater penetration.Reduced powder charge-More manageable recoil.Reduced cost *
25 Care and Storage of Ammunition .Always keep ammunition in factory box or container that can be properly labeled.Store ammunition in a cool dry place free from extreme temperature variations.Store ammunition separately from guns and not accessible from unauthorized persons, especially childrenNever submerge in water or expose to any solvents, petroleum products, bore cleaner, amonia or other chemicals. Chemicals can penetrate the cartridge and cause the primer or the powder to deteriorate.Explanation of the importance of rotating defensive ammunition stored for long periods of time in your handgun *
26 AMMUNITION MALFUNCTIONS Misfire-Failure of the cartridge to fire after the primer has been struck by the firing pinHangfire- A perceptible delay in the ignition of a cartridge after the primer has been struck by the firing pin.Squib load-Development of less than normal pressure or velocity after ignition of the cartridge. Unusual difference in recoil or noise **
27 DEALING WITH MALFUNCTIONS Misfire-Hangfire: Keep the pistol pointed in a safe direction-a hangfire might exist and the cartridge could still fire. Don’t attmept to open the action of the pistol to remove the cartridge for at least 30 secondsSquib load:Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, wait 30 seconds and then unload gun. Check to make sure the chamber is empty and the barrel free of obstructions *
28 Fundamentals of Handgun Shooting There are three primary two handed shooting stances:Isosceles StanceWeaver StanceModified Isosceles Stance
29 Two Handed Shooting Stances Isosceles Stance- This position is so named because in this position your extended arms when seen from above resemble an isosceles triangle.Feet are placed shoulder width apart.Feet and shoulders are square to the target.Knees are slightly bent with weight slightly forward on the balls of the feet.Two-handed grip of the gun with the arms extended forward and the elbows slightly bent.The head is erect, not hunched and shoulders are at normal height.The firearm is lifted to the level of the eyes for aimingThis is a more instinctive and natural position for most shooters. *
30 ….more stancesWeaver Stance- Named for former San Diego County Sheriff Jack Weaver.Feet are positioned in a boxer stance with the strong foot rearward.The weak shoulder is angled toward the target.The knees are flexed and the body weight is carried slightly forward, on the balls of the feet.The elbows are bent downward to bring the gun closer to the body than the isosceles.The head is tipped slightly to view the sights.An isometric action is employed between the stong and weak arm for stability.The recoil is absorbed through the bent elbows and the isometric pushing and pulling between the strong and support hand *
31 ….more stancesModified Isosceles Stance: This position incorporates the natural, fully-extended arm position of the isosceles position with the stability of the asymmetrical boxer’s stance foot placemnt of the Weaver position.Allows better recoil absorbtion.The head is level and the body leans forward *
32 GET A GRIP HAND GRIP-Operate firearm repeatedly without changing grip. BODY POSITION-Least amount of body and firearm movement.BREATH CONTROL-Control breathing to minimize body and firearm movement.SIGHT ALIGNMENT-The relationship of the eye in alignment with the rear and front sight.TRIGGER SQUEEZE-The ability to apply increasing pressure on the trigger and allow the hammer to fall without disturbing the sight picture.FOLLOW THROUGH-Stabilizing recoil, maintaining grip and stance, regaining front sight focus, resetting the trigger and preparing for follow up shot if a threat persists *
33 Rules to follow…On the Range Always fully comply with the range officers instructions.Follow the 4 safety rules.Treat all firearms as if loadedAlways keep finger off of trigger until you are on target and ready and you have made the decision to fire.Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.Before the decision to fire, be sure of your target, your target’s environment and any other safety hazard.Wear eye and ear protection at all times during practice shooting.How do you hand a firearm to another person (Demonstration)Explaination and demonstate the three combat postions for a firearm: a. In the holster or case b. at the ready c. on target *
34 Failure To FireFaulty Ammunition-Type I malfunction-faulty ammo, mag not seated.Failure to Eject-Type II-Stovepipe, partial ejectionFeedway Stoppage-Type III-Double feed, extractor gummed or broken guide rods. Extractor does not get a good grip on the spent cartridge. Chamber blocked.Failure to go to battery-Type IV-Bad chamber design. Weak guide spring. Extremely dirty guide rails or guide rod.Malfuntion Resolution: Tap, Invert, Rack, Reassess *
35 REVOLVERS VS SEMIAUTOMATICS* DEMONSTRATION OF:Safe LoadingCockingUncockingUnloadingREVOLVERS VS SEMIAUTOMATICS*
36 Maintenance and Cleaning of: Why is it important to clean and maintain?Safety considerations when cleaning….How do you clean a revolver?How do you clean a semi-automatic? *
37 Holsters and Holstering What is the purpose of a holster?What are the different types of holsters?Advantages and disadvantages:SafetyAccessibilitySecurityConcealmentMethods of carry….Safety is the first consideration *
38 Safe Concealment Considerations… The firearm should be in a holster or caseThe firearm should be hidden from view and be placed so that it is only accessible to the individual carrying it.A handgun should not just be thrown in a glovebox, under the car seat or a drawer.The permit holder is responsible for their firearm at all times *
39 Safe Storage of Firearms/Ammo Firearms should be stored unloaded. (Storage is when the firearm is not available for immediate use)Recommend that firearms and ammunition are stored separately.Recommend that both are properly secured *
40 Storage Devices Safes Locked Cases Safe Proofing Devices The need for safety does not end just because you do not have the firearm with you *
41 Child Proofing Do not store firearm where it is visible. Storage area is not accessible to children.EducateSafety, Safety, Safety *
