1. ALWAYS KEEP THE GUN POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION
- A primary rule of gun safety.
- Never pointing a gun at yourself or others ensures that it will not cause harm if it goes off. When outdoors, point the gun towards the ground or towards the target.
-If you are indoors, be mindful that a bullet can penetrate ceilings, floors, walls, windows, and doors. Use common sense to dictate the safest direction.
2. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL READY TO SHOOT
- When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun.
- Do not touch the trigger until you are ready to fire.
3. KNOW AND FOLLOW ALL OF THE SAFE GUN HANDLING RULES
- It is important to receive Professional Training regarding Gun Safety prior to handling any Firearm.
4. BE CERTAIN THE RACKING ASSIST MODEL IS CORRECT FOR YOUR INTENDED USE
- The Nylon Shroud must slide freely over the outside of your pistol’s barrel and not hit on either the recoil spring guide rod or the frame of your pistol.
- Do not use with pistols chambered smaller than listed.
- Do not use with obstructed barrels or barrels with visible leading within the barrel.
- Only use the Racking Assist with semi-automatic, properly functioning modern pistols in good condition.
- The barrel needs to be free of any obstructions including any visible lead or copper buildup inside the barrel.
- Use the correct Racking Assist Model; the nylon shroud must slide freely over the barrel and not hit on either the recoil spring guide or the frame of the pistol.
- Only use the Racking Assist positioned vertically (as shown) with the Racking Assist Base down while being supported on a sturdy, flat, horizontal, non-slick surface.
- Ensure that there is nothing between the Racking Assist Base and the supporting surface.
- Do not hold onto the Racking Assist or allow your fingers, hands or body in front of the muzzle to rack the slide.
- Do not use the Racking Assist to clear jams or malfunctions; such usage may result in unsafe gun handling. These conditions should be cleared by a certified professional or gunsmith trained in the servicing of your particular pistol.
Read your Firearm’s Manual cover to cover to fully understand the safe operation, handling, loading/unloading procedures along with ammunition warnings to learn and understand how it will relate to the Racking Assist before use. If you have any remaining questions or concerns, request and receive additional instructions and training from a qualified instructor before proceeding.
