      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    If you shoot after the command "cease fire" has been given during actual range qualification, 5 points will be subtracted for each round fired.

    When loading or unloading a firearm on the range, the shooter must remain on the firing line and keep the muzzle pointed down-range:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When loading or unloading a firearm on the range, it is important for the shooter to remain on the firing line and keep the muzzle pointed down-range. This is crucial for safety reasons as it helps to prevent any accidental discharge of the firearm towards people or objects in other directions. By keeping the muzzle pointed down-range, the shooter ensures that any potential danger is directed away from others and towards the designated target area. Additionally, staying on the firing line ensures that the shooter maintains a safe distance from others and follows the proper protocol for handling firearms on the range.

    While removing a firearm from the holster, a finger should be inserted into the trigger guard.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is incorrect to insert a finger into the trigger guard while removing a firearm from the holster. This is because inserting a finger into the trigger guard can increase the risk of accidental discharge of the firearm. It is important to keep the trigger finger outside the trigger guard and along the frame of the firearm until ready to shoot. This helps ensure the firearm is not discharged unintentionally and promotes safe handling practices.

    Shooting a firearm to remove any foreign object or material, such as heavy grease from the barrel, is very dangerous.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shooting a firearm to remove foreign objects or materials, such as heavy grease from the barrel, is indeed very dangerous. This action can cause the firearm to malfunction or explode, posing a significant risk to the shooter and those nearby. It is always recommended to follow proper cleaning procedures and use appropriate tools to maintain the safety and functionality of firearms.

  • 5. 

    An open cylinder or a slide locked back will prevent a gun firing accidentally:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An open cylinder or a slide locked back will prevent a gun firing accidentally because it physically blocks the firing mechanism of the gun. When the cylinder is open or the slide is locked back, the gun cannot chamber a round or engage the firing pin, making it impossible for the gun to discharge a bullet. This safety feature is commonly used in firearms to prevent accidental discharges and ensure the gun can only be fired intentionally when the user is ready to do so.
