The Chapter will be expanding the use of Empty Chamber Indicators (ECI) also known as “Chamber Flags’ or ‘Open Bore Indicators” we will be buying them to be passed out to new members and others. The use of this very inexpensive but effective safety device will be expanded so it is important for all members to become familiar with them and acquire your own if you don’t have any.
