You should always follow safe shooting practices when using your Stoeger Airguns air rifle.
NEVER POINT AN AIRGUN AT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT SAFE TO SHOOT
Never let the muzzle of an airgun point at any part of your body or at another person. This is especially important when loading or unloading an airgun. When you are shooting at a target, know what is behind it. If you miss your target or if the pellet penetrates the target, it is your responsibility to ensure that the shot does not cause unintended injury or damage.
