When firing the rifle, be sure that other shooters and bystanders are a safe distance to the rear. Empty cartridge cases are ejected from the rifle with some velocity and could cause injury to any person in their path. All shooters should wear shooting glasses when firing any firearm. Hearing protection must also be worn because exposure to shooting noise can damage hearing.
