12 Handgun Knowledge Grip Panels Wood, Plastic, Rubber Attached to lower portion of the frame Trigger Guard Protects the trigger to prevent accidental firing Rear Sight Front Sight Trigger Releases mechanical parts to cause firing Grip Panels Trigger Guard Rear Sight Front Sight Trigger

13 Semi-automatic Pistol Knowledge Safety Mechanical device designed to reduce the chance of accidental discharge Mechanical devices can fail Safety

14 Safety Mechanism Mechanical Device to Block Operation of Action Trigger Only Firing Pin Block Hammer Blocks Potential for Failure Shooter Ultimately Responsible for Safety Muzzle Pointed in Safe Direction Personally Check Safety of Any Shot Before Firing Kept in the “ON” position till ready to fire

15 Handgun Knowledge Barrel Chamber Unlike revolvers, semi-automatic pistols have a single chamber located at the rear of the barrel Holds cartridge at the instant of firing The revolver, in contrast, has multiple chambers which are located in the cylinder Cylinder

16 Handgun Knowledge Barrel (def) Metal tube through which bullet passes Launches the projectile Bore- Inside of Barrel Bore

17 Muzzle Where the Projectile Exits Points Toward Impact Site

18 Rifling Spiral Lands (Ridges) and Grooves Rotating Projectile on Its Long Axis Stabilizing Flight Path

19 Types of Sights Partridge Sights Electronic Sights Telescopic Sights Laser Sights

20 Types of Open Sights A) U-notch and post B) Patridge C) V-notch and post D) express E) U-notch and bead F) V-notch and bead G) trapezoid H) ghost ring. The gray dot represents the target.

21 Eye Dominance

22 Determining the Dominant Eye Each individual has a dominant eye, which should be used to aim the pistol. Reduced Eye Fatigue Reduced Tension Quicker Target Acquisition Both Eyes Open Reduced Eye Fatigue Better Depth Perception

23 Sight Alignment Sights As Reference Points Aligning the Eye With the Bore Aligning the Bore With the Intended Point of Impact

24 Achieving Sight Alignment Focus on Front Sight Center Front Sight in Rear Sight Notch Align Top of Front Sight Maintain Front Sight Focus

25 Trigger Control What is the function of the trigger? When pressed, the trigger activates the hammer and fires the gun. The index finger is placed with the trigger halfway between the tip of the finger and the first joint.

26 Trigger Control The trigger is pressed in a smooth, continuous manner directly to the rear, while not disturbing sight alignment.

27 Follow Through The act of Maintaining the proper sight picture and sight alignment after you fire Watch for the “LOOK SEE” student

42 Pistol Ownership What is the most important aspect of handling firearms? Safety!!! Safety is always the primary concern when handling firearms.

43 Safe Gun Handling What do you think are the major causes of gun accidents? IGNORANCE CARELESSNESS

44 #1: ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction What do you think is meant by a “safe direction”? Term: safe direction Term: muzzle If the gun were to discharge, it would not cause injury or damage.

45 #2: ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot If your finger is kept off the trigger, where should it be? Term: trigger Term: trigger guard Term: frame The finger should rest outside the trigger guard or along the side of the gun (on the frame).

46 #3: Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use How do you know whether or not a gun is unloaded? Term: magazine Term: action Term: chamber Check that a gun is unloaded by removing the magazine, opening the action, and inspecting the chamber.

47 Safe Gun Handling An agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has been suspended after video surfaced showing the man shooting himself during a gun safety class in front of a group of Orlando fourth-graders.
