Hunting Supplies in Action | Guns & Ammo | Greenville, NC

There’s nothing that Greenville Marine values more than safety when it comes to guns and ammo and other hunting supplies in Greenville, NC. That’s why we wanted to give you the tips you need when it comes to gun safety and hunting. A lot of mishaps and accidents happen when people don’t quite recognize the weight of responsibility when it comes to firearms. Guns and ammo are designed to kill, and that comes with a huge responsibility for those handling it. Safe fire-arm practices are second-nature to the well-trained hunter. Follow the tips below to be an effective, responsible, and safe hunter this Summer!

1. Know Your Safe “Zone of Fire”

Staying strictly within your zone of fire is one of the most important practices when it comes to gun safety. Your zone of fire is a 45-degree area in front of you. You are never to fire outside of these 45 degrees. Anything outside of it is not within your eyesight and is not considered safe to pursue. Your zone of fire is also changing every step and move you make. Make sure each position you take is safe. Be aware of where your other hunting partners are and to communicate with your partners constantly.

2. Practice Control

Hunting can be thrilling, but be aware that this can also lead to reckless behavior. Make sure that you keep your excitement in check and that you don’t let it cloud your judgment. If you feel like your excitement is getting the better of you, then you need to slow down and take a break. You should also communicate this to your partners, and they should respect your decision. Safety is the most important part of the hunt, and no kill is worth risking safety. It’s also statistically proven that the calmer hunters yield better results.

3. Practice Makes Perfect

Going to a shooting range and practicing hitting targets is important for any hunter at various levels. Before you try hunting for the first time, have new equipment, or you’re well seasoned, you should constantly be practicing your skills. You should be consistently hitting your targets at the range. If you are finding that you don’t do well at the range for whatever reason, then you are not ready to hunt. That’s okay! Practice is the best way to get better, and if you’re determined, then you should be ready in no time!

4. Know Your Target

If you can’t clearly make out what you’re shooting, then you should not shoot! Anything you shoot should be 100% clear to you. It’s not worth taking the risk.

Storing Your Gun Safely | Hunting Supplies | Guns & Ammo | Greenville, NC

At Greenville Marine, we not only sell boats, motors, and trailers, but we are also retailers of Guns & Ammo or whatever hunting supplies you could need 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 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. Stay 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 by 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.

Quick Guide: Protecting Hearing While Shooting | Guns & Ammo | Greenville NC

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.
