Firing

WARNING: Always wear protective glasses and earplugs when shooting (see point 8 of the BASIC SAFETY RULES)._

WHEN READY TO FIRE

1 Release the manual safety by simply rotating the safety lever (C) completely downwards using your thumb. The red warning dot can be seen when manual safety is disengaged. 1 Aim pistol and align front and rear sight on target (fig. 15). i Fire by squeezing the trigger.

The discharge will recoil the slide which, in turn, will extract and eject the fired cartridge case, cock the hammer and activate the recoil spring. Then the slide will automatically close, feeding the next cartridge from the magazine into the chamber and the PISTOL IS READY TO FIRE AGAIN.

i When the last round has been fired, the slide remains open (fig. 11). 1 To fire again, remove the empty magazine and insert a loaded one. i Press slide catch (H) to close the slide and load the chamber (fig. 12).

WARNING: THE PISTOL IS NOW LOADED, COCKED AND READY TO FIRE AGAIN. ENGAGE THE MANUAL SAFETY IF NOT READY TO FIRE.

WARNING: The Beretta 87 Target is a target pistol and therefore it is not equipped with a safety hammer decocking device.

For this reason never try to lower the hammer with a round in the chamber.

To have the pistol in a safety condition, it is necessary to unload it. Proceed as indicated in the following chapter.
