Know How to Use Gun
Learn how it works, how to safely open and close the action, how to add or remove ammunition.
Store Gun in a Safe Place
There are a lot of things to consider when storing your gun, especially around children. You can find gun storage devices, locking devices, and mechanical locking devices for your gun. Make sure you adhere to the other rules to ensure safety in case this step fails for whatever reason.
Keep Gun Unloaded
That is until you are ready to use it. If you need to open the action, inspect chambers, etc, and you don’t know how to use it just leave it alone until you can get help from a professional.
Keep Finger Off Trigger
Place your finger along the frame and out of the trigger guard until you actually need to use it.
Clean it Regularly
You should clean your gun every time you use it to maintain your gun’s value and extend its life. It also ensures that your gun operates correctly.
Make Sure This Gun is Safe
If the Gun hasn’t been properly cleaned and maintained, it can influence the safety of your gun. If you’re unsure about the functionality of the gun, take it to your local gunsmith to look at it. They are the most knowledgeable, and you can rest easy knowing that a professional has given it the O.K.

At Greenville Marine, we not only sell boats, motors, and trailers, but we are also retailers of Guns & Ammo in Greenville, NC. Because of that, we are very passionate about gun safety. With that in mind, here are 3 firearm safety tips to follow.
1. Only Store It Unloaded
As a rule of thumb, firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use. Whenever you pick up a gun, like when you’re removing it from or returning it to storage, remember that it should be pointed in a safe direction and make absolutely sure that it’s unloaded. A “safe direction” means that the gun is pointed so that even if there was an accidental discharge, it wouldn’t cause injury
2. Keep Yourself Educated
As a gun owner, it’s absolutely paramount that you know how your firearm operates. Do this by reading the manual on your firearm to know how to safely open and close the action of the firearm. The manual and other learning materials should also be able to tell you how to safely remove any ammunition from the firearm and the magazine.
Most importantly, make sure the young people in your home are aware of and understand the safety guidelines with firearms. Educate everyone in your family about firearms safety.
3. Lock It Up
Of course, with all of this, make sure everything to do with your guns & ammo in Greenville, NC is locked up. Store your firearms in a locked cabinet, safe, gun vault or storage case when you’re not using them, in a location inaccessible to children and cannot be handled by anyone without your permission. For another measure, store your ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms.
Another great idea is to use a gun locking device to make the firearm inoperable when not in use. A gun lock should be used as an additional safety precaution and does not substitute for secure storage.

Greenville Marine and Sports Center in Greenville, NC believes in stressing safety to our guns and ammo customers. Shooting guns regularly can severely impact your hearing. We want our guns and ammo customers to know all the different aspects of gun safety. Here are ways to protect your hearing!
1. Know How to Recognize the Signs of Hearing Loss
Hearing loss can be an effect of old age, but it can also be caused by abusing them. The general signs of hearing loss caused by guns and ammo use are:
- Sounds are beginning to be muffled.
- You’re having a hard time making out specific words when people are talking to you.
- You are no longer able to figure out the direction in which a sound is coming from.
- You are experiencing a ringing or buzzing noise after being exposed to any sound.
Knowing the signs of hearing loss caused by guns and ammo is the biggest step so that you can take action immediately. Of course, the best way to prevent hearing loss is to implement safety practices before it even begins, but better late than never.
2. Learn About Your Options
There is a variety of hearing protection products that you can invest in for when you use guns and ammo. Here are some options that you can try to protect your ears from the harsh noise that comes from gun use.
- Ear Plugs: These are preferred among many because they go directly into the ear. They have the exact same feeling as headphone buds. They are small, unobtrusive, and are generally very cheap. They can provide mild protection from the sound of gunfire.
- Passive Earmuffs: These essentially look like headphones. They may be bulky, but they do provide a decent amount of protection from the noise that comes from guns and ammo. These can also be fairly cost efficient to pricey. It all depends on the quality and amount you’re willing to spend.
- Electronic Earmuffs: Electronic earmuffs look like headphone the most. They provide great guns and ammo noise protection and offer a wide variety of settings. The noise management that they provide is the best gun and ammo protection that you’re probably going to get. They can be pricey but are well worth the investment to promote your hearing health.
You can also amp up your hearing protection from the noise that comes from guns and ammo by doubling up your earplugs with your passive ear muffs. This can double the NRR (Noise Reduction Rating), but if you feel that it’s bulky, then you might as well invest in the electronic earmuffs. Some protection from the noise caused by guns and ammo, however, is better than none. If you are feeling overwhelmed, then reach out to somebody in the store who can help you decide which ear protection is best for you.
