Safety is paramount when it comes to anything involving firearms. You have heard the saying, “guns don’t kill people, people do”. Yes, a gun is a tool that, by itself, can’t do anything, however, we must treat them and handle them in the safest way possible, AT ALL TIMES. Here are The Universal Firearm Safety Rules. Study them, memorize them and always have them in the front of your mind when handling a firearm:
- Treat all guns as though they are loaded.
- Never point your firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.
- Keep you finger OFF the trigger and outside the trigger guard until you are on target and have made the decision to shoot.
- Always be sure of your target, and know what’s behind, in front of and around the target.
