You should NEVER store your airgun in the cocked position. It can be potentially dangerous and can weaken the mainspring. Airguns are not toys. After use and before putting the airgun away, always make absolutely sure there are no pellets in the chamber. Airguns should be stored in a manner that protects against unauthorized usage.

What do I do if I need to remove an obstacle that has lodged inside the barrel of my rifle?
First, make sure the safety is ON and barrel is pointing in a safe direction. NEVER attempt to clear stuck ammunition by firing an additional pellet through the gun. Break the barrel down the same as in loading, and insert a cleaning rod of the appropriate caliber for your rifle into the breech opening of the barrel. Push the rod through the barrel until the pellet is free. When you are finished, clean the barrel with a brush attachment of the cleaning rod to remove any lead particles that may be adhered to the rifling.
