The Basics of Gun Safety

checklist

These are the most basic of gun safety rules.  If you know and follow these tips then you are ready to start learning how to shoot:

  • Always treat a firearm as if it were loaded. This way you won’t accidentally fire.
  • Always make sure the gun is pointed in a safe direction. Never point at anything you do not intend to shoot, even if you think it’s unloaded.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  • Keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

There are many other safety tips that you need to be aware of.  This is just a few of them.

Additionally, don’t take my word for it.  Do your own research and get some training from an experienced shooter or a  professional.
