1. NEVER POINT A FIREARM AT SOMETHING THAT IS NOTSAFE TO SHOOT. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at any part of yourbody or at another person. This is especially important whenloading or unloading the firearm. When you are shooting at atarget, know what is behind it. Some bullets can travel overa mile. If you miss your target or if the bullet penetrates thetarget, it is your responsibility to ensure that the shot doesnot cause unintended injury or damage.

inside to see if a round is present. Removing or unloading the magazine will not guaranteethat a firearm is unloaded or cannot fire. Shotguns andrifles can be checked by cycling or removing all rounds andby then opening and inspecting the chamber so that a visualinspection of the chamber for any remaining rounds can bemade.
3. STORE YOUR FIREARM SO THAT CHILDREN CANNOTGAIN ACCESS TO IT.It is your responsibility to ensure that children under the ageof 18 or other unauthorized persons do not gain access toyour firearm. To reduce the risk of accidents involvingchildren, unload your firearm, lock it and store theammunition in a separate locked location. Please notethat devices intended to prevent accidents - for example,cable locks, chamber plugs, etc, - may not prevent use ormisuse of your firearm by a determined person. Firearmstorage in a steel gun safe may be more appropriate toreduce the likelihood of intentional misuse of a firearm by anunauthorized child or person.

There is a broad array of .22LR amunition made by manymanufacturers in different brands and types. To ensurereliable operation, a semi-automatic firearm must bematched to a certain cartridge load.
