Care and Precautions in Handling

a. Handle all types of cartridges with care at all times. Have installation and removal of cartridges performed only by trained personnel. When not installed, store cartridges in shipping containers.

b. Short terminals of electrically fired cartridges by means of specifically designed cap, or by wrapping in metal foil. This prevents accidental firing, should terminals come in contact with electrical power.

c. Observe recommendations for care, handling and preservation of ammunition given in chapter 1-they apply generally to all types of propellant actuated devices.
