This handgun is not equipped with a


device that fully blocks use by
unauthorized users. More than 200,000
firearms like this one are stolen from
their owners every year in the United
States. In addition, there are more than a
thousand suicides each year by younger
children and teenagers who get access to
firearms. Hundreds more die from
accidental discharge. It is likely that
many more children sustain serious
wounds or inflict such wounds
accidentally on others. In order to limit
the chance of such misuse, it is
imperative that you keep this weapon
