If you have made the decision to licence a firearm in your name for self-defence, it is your responsibility to ensure that you know how to confidently and safely use the firearm. This includes loading and unloading the firearm, stripping and cleaning the firearm, safe-storage of the firearm and its ammunition, how to clear a malfunction, how to properly grip the firearm and of course how to use the firearm without putting innocent lives at risk. As with driving a car, using a firearm confidently and safely comes with practice. New skills are developed through repetitive behaviour and through building muscle memory and this is what a skills builder is designed to do. A skills builder gets you familiar with your firearm. It teaches you how to work with the firearm safely and starts to build a foundation of safe handling that, through repetition will become second nature to you.
