Firearm Safety

The most important thing to remember about firearms – all firearms – is the SAFETY RULES. As I noted before, there are many different versions of the firearms safety rules, but what’s important is that you KNOW them and remember them.

  1. Always assume the gun is loaded.
  2. Never let your muzzle cross anything you do not want to destroy.
  3. Finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
  4. Know your target and what’s beyond it.

Train on these, recite them in your head, EVERY TIME you are handling a firearm, whether in a gun shop, the range, your home.
