1. Remove magazine/source of BBs
2. Invert (typically) the rifle so the feed tube will "gravity feed" any BBs left in the feed tube/hopup
3. Point in a safe direction...you're not in game play...so pointing anywhere but a safe direction is just ass lazy and ignorant.
4. Fire on SEMI...keep firing until you get at least 3 blank shots
5. Put it on Safe
6. Cover the muzzle
7. Don't fiddle with it
All the above (and a lot more detail about everything) is buried somewhere in this forum...search/troll/read more.
Just to add :
Even if it's cleared. Even if there is no battery, even if you're just holding an outer barrel with a flashhider on : Never muzzle sweep. Always keep your trigger finger above the trigger. Will make everyone happy.
