D Heavy Rain and Fording

19 • Always try to keep water out of the barrel. If water does get in, drain and (if possible) dry

20 with a patch. If water is in the barrel, point the muzzle down and break the seal by pulling

22 weapon, ensure the drain hole in the stock is clear so the water can run out.

23 • Perform normal maintenance.
