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.

Here are some of the most important BB gun safety rules:

  • Treat all guns as though they are loaded. Never assume that a gun is not loaded.
  • Never point your BB gun at anyone. It does not matter if it is not loaded!
  • Check out both local and federal laws and regulations. Different cities and states have different BB gun safety laws and regulations. Certain guns are not allowed in certain places.
  • Do not shoot at a target unless you are aware of everything surrounding the target. Do not shoot if there is a possiblility that someone is behind or on the sides of the target… you might miss!
  • Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  • As stated above, in the “A Christmas Story” incident, always wear protective eyewear. Safety GlassesMasks, or Goggles are recommended.
  • BBs can and will ricochet. Be aware of the type of surface you are shooting at. BBs ricochet more easily off of certain surfaces. Flat surfaces, hard surfaces, and water are all surfaces that have a high incidence of BB ricochet. Also make sure that the target is not at an angle.
  • Start out at a shooting range. It is a good and much safer place to learn how to shoot.
  • Do not allow minors (persons under 18 years of age) to shoot any type of gun (not even a BB gun) without active adult supervision.
  • Now that BB guns are made to look more and more realistic, people can easily mistake them for real firearms. This makes them potentially dangerous! If someone (including and especially a law enforcement officer) thinks you have a real gun, he or she may act upon it. You could be putting yourself and others in danger. The use of a Gun Case for transporting your BB gun is recommended. Do not carry your BB gun openly in a public place. Doing so may actually be illegal in your state.
  • Do not alter your BB gun to look more realistic than it already is. Policemen have been known to shoot and fire upon children, for example, who have removed the safety orange tip from their airsoft guns because they could no longer recognize the guns as anything but real guns.
  • It is not recommended that children under the age of 16 be allowed to operate a high velocity BB gun. Take a look at the velocity type of your BB gun or air rifle before using. Be sure to follow all warnings.
  • Always check to make sure the gun is not loaded. Point the gun away from people and animals in a safe direction and squeeze the trigger. Avoid pointing it at things that it might ricochet off of.
  • Do not carry a loaded BB gun when climbing over fences or up trees or even when jumping. Doing so could cause the gun to go off.
  • Properly maintain your gun. A damaged or dirty gun is more likely to cause injury.
  • Store your BB gun away securely after use. A lockable Gun Safe and/or Trigger Lock is recommended, particularly if minors are present.
  • One rule of BB gun safety that is too often overlooked is that you should always use new ammo in your BB gun. Not doing so is dangerous and can likely degrade your gun more quickly.

Be diligent in following these BB gun safety rules. Safety should be everyone's priority and responsibility. Educate anyone, who may be jeopardizing his or her own safety as well as the safety of others, in proper BB gun safety practices.
