Firearms Safety is a Priority for Browning.

Release Date: 4/9/2013

Browning has long been committed to firearms safety.  Browning -- working with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) -- has long made a strong effort and commitment to firearms safety.  We are proud of the successes we share with the NSSF and NSSF member companies in areas of home firearms safety, hunting safety, range safety, child protection and many other areas of firearms-related safety.  

The Browning company is made up of families and people much like you. Our concern for safety is genuine and deep. As always, we encourage all gun owners to take their responsibilities for firearms safety seriously. Don't be timid when it comes to gun safety. If you observe anyone violating any safety precautions, you have an obligation to insist on safer handling practices. Programs like Project Childsafe, McGruff the Crime Dog and others are making real a difference.

Below is information provided by the NSSF on recent accomplishments in distributing safety information on gun safety to individuals, families, institutions and schools. As always, we greatly encourage you to take advantage of these materials in every way possible. Browning provides links to safety materials here on Browning.com. Just click here. Current owner's manuals, with safety information are also available for download.

 Please take advantage of the resources detailed below and always be an enthusiastic participant in firearms safety efforts.
