If some one is before you, behind you, lying on the floor, up on a ladder or flying on a trapeze.....its the weapon handlers responsibility to ensure it is pointing at nobody at all times.

Well that is our law. It works well when everyone observes it, and those who don't observe it get a well deserved bollocking from whoever else is around at the time. Peer pressure........

Anyone intending to come shoot here in NZ will have to have learned that and passed their basic Firearms safety handling test (equivalent to ours), of which this is a core part. PCP air rifles are now firearms by law here.......and regarded the same as a shotgun/rimfire/Ak47/elephant gun.

We just need to be told what your's is Adam so we know ours are equivalent
