On the back of the gun (where the grip safety would be on a colt 45) there
is a release, you push forward wtih one thumb. While pulling back the slide
with the other hand.
Point the caulking gun in a safe direction, make sure the safety is on, and
always treat it like it's loaded. Remember the NCA (National Caulkingun
Association) safety rules.
Due to following a few simple rules, the rates of accidental caulking have
declined every year. But drive by caulking continues to be a problem. So,
take your kids to an approved safety range, where they can learn the rules.
Remember, caulk doesn't seal windows, people seal windows. Support the right
to keep and bear caulk.
