1. The gun lock

When it comes to safety, for a firearm, the basis is having a gun lock. This will prevent someone else from using your weapon without you consent or causing an accident if mishandled. The gun lock with keys really does the job, but for those who don't want to take their keys everywhere, there are also locks with code.

The safety vest is also one of the essentials for hunting. It allows you to remain visible to other hunters and thus avoid any accident. In Quebec, and in many countries, it is mandatory to wear it. It must be visible at all times and be worn over all other clothing layers. There is a simple version of the safety vest. But, it's not because it's a mandatory acessory that you can't give it another utility. Therefore, there is the version with integrated shell holder.
