BB gun safety is an extremely important factor to consider for anyone looking to handle a BB gun. You have probably read the manufacturer warnings that BB guns are not toys. Yet, many still treat them as such. The fact is that BB guns can project enough power to cause significant harm or even permanent injury. They should not be taken lightly. You may have seen the ill-fated scene in the movie “A Christmas Story” when Ralphie fails to heed the warning of “You’ll shoot your eye out?”
What eventually happens is that he did, indeed, practically shoot his eye out with his Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle. Of course, if he had followed basic BB gun safety rules, he would have been fine. Had he been wearing protective eyewear, instead of just his glasses, he would have been much better off. Had he not shot at a surface with such potential for ricochet… well, you get the point.
Anyhow, movies aside, knowledge of BB gun safety practices and procedures is truly is a must prior to the handling of a BB gun. Many people do not realize how easy it is to injure someone (or even potentially kill someone) with a BB gun. Much of the same gun safety rules must be followed when using BB guns as when using any other type of gun, including real firearms.
Gun safety education is especially important, likely the most important teaching point to get across if you are training your child on a BB gun before you allow he or she to shoot a real gun. Make sure they learn proper BB gun safety practices and procedures right off the bat, and subsequently translate this to basic gun safety.
