Be Safe – Crossbow Safety
This website was created for the pure love for crossbows and not as a weapon for hunting uses. I love animals, don’t eat them and defiantly do not want anybody harming them.
The fact that crossbows are so easy to use can lead people to a false sense of security. A misuse of a crossbow can have serious consequences.
So here are some safety tips:
- Always fire your crossbow only at a shooting range. Crossbow is a deadly weapon. Always point and choose a safe direction. Never point it at or toward another person or animal.
- Keep your hands and fingers away from the bow string release path. You must keep your hand and fingers in a safe position every time you shoot the crossbow
- Put your finger on the trigger only when you have made a decision to shoot.
- You could accidentally fire the crossbow and cause serious or fatal injury.
- Never walk, or hike with an bolt loaded in your crossbow. Eliminating the possibility to misfire while accidentally tripping.
- Never leave a cocked crossbow. An accidental misfire could cause serious or fatal injury
- Always wear safety glasses when cocking, loading, and shooting a crossbow. A serious injury could occur if the bow string snaps or the bow breaks.
- Keep the crossbow out of the reach of children.
- Keep and maintain all others behind you when you are shooting. People standing near you or beside you are vulnerable to injury.
- Examine Carefully the crossbow and bolts before firing for any damage or missing parts every time you use it.
