Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You can always trust a safety because they never fail.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that safety measures or precautions never fail, which is not true. Safety measures can sometimes fail due to various factors such as human error, equipment malfunction, or unforeseen circumstances. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that you can always trust a safety measure because they can fail.

  • 2. 

    It doesn't matter which direction bullets face when you put them in the magazine.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The direction in which bullets face when you put them in the magazine actually matters. Bullets need to be inserted with the pointed end facing forward so that they can properly feed into the chamber of the firearm. If the bullets are inserted in the wrong direction, they may not feed correctly and could cause malfunctions or misfires. Therefore, the statement that it doesn't matter which direction bullets face in the magazine is false.

    You can release the slide using the

    • A.

      Magazine Release

    • B.

      Slide Release

    • C.

      Safety or Decocker

    Correct Answer
    B. Slide Release
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Slide Release. The slide release is a mechanism found on semi-automatic firearms that allows the user to release the slide and chamber a round into the barrel. It is typically located on the side of the firearm and can be easily operated with the thumb or index finger. The slide release is an important feature for quickly reloading the firearm during shooting or clearing malfunctions.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When inserting the magazine into the gun you should

    • A.

      Make sure it is fully loaded.

    • B.

      Shake it to see if any cartridges fall out.

    • C.

      Make sure to push it up firmly until you feel it lock into place.

    Correct Answer
    C. Make sure to push it up firmly until you feel it lock into place.
    Explanation
    When inserting the magazine into the gun, it is important to push it up firmly until it locks into place. This ensures that the magazine is securely attached to the gun and will not fall out during use. Simply shaking the magazine to see if any cartridges fall out is not a reliable method for ensuring proper insertion. Additionally, while it is important to make sure the magazine is fully loaded, this step does not directly relate to the insertion process.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An unloaded, safe, semi-auto pistol should have the

    • A.

      Safety On.

    • B.

      The slide locked to the rear and the magazine unloaded.

    • C.

      The slide closed with the magazine in it.

    Correct Answer
    B. The slide locked to the rear and the magazine unloaded.
    Explanation
    In order to ensure safety with an unloaded, safe, semi-auto pistol, the slide should be locked to the rear and the magazine should be unloaded. This means that the slide is pulled back and held in place, indicating that the chamber is empty. Additionally, the magazine should be removed to ensure that there are no rounds in the firearm. This configuration prevents accidental discharge and ensures that the pistol is in a safe condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The slide on a semi auto pistol will both chamber and eject cartridges.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The slide on a semi auto pistol is responsible for both chambering and ejecting cartridges. When a round is fired, the slide moves back, ejecting the spent cartridge and cocking the hammer or striker. As the slide moves forward, it picks up a new cartridge from the magazine and chambers it into the firing position. This cycle repeats for each shot fired, making the statement "True."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    A semi auto pistol can be either striker fired or hammer fired.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A semi auto pistol can be either striker fired or hammer fired. This means that the firing mechanism of a semi auto pistol can either use a striker to initiate the firing process or a hammer. The choice between striker fired and hammer fired pistols depends on various factors such as personal preference, intended use, and design of the firearm. Therefore, it is true that a semi auto pistol can be either striker fired or hammer fired.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    All semi auto pistols have

    • A.

      A decocker.

    • B.

      A safety

    • C.

      A magazine to hold the ammunition.

    Correct Answer
    C. A magazine to hold the ammunition.
    Explanation
    All semi auto pistols have a magazine to hold the ammunition because the magazine is an essential component of a semi-automatic pistol. It is responsible for storing and feeding the ammunition into the firearm's chamber for firing. Without a magazine, the pistol would not be able to hold any ammunition, rendering it useless. Therefore, it is a necessary feature that all semi-auto pistols possess.
