The Four Rules of Gun Safety
Know them. Trust them. Follow Them.
ALWAYS treat every firearm as a LOADED firearm.
NEVER point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to DESTROY!
ALWAYS keep your finger OFF THE TRIGGER until your muzzle is on target, and you have made the decision to shoot.
BEFORE making the decision to shoot, KNOW YOUR TARGET and what is BEYOND.
These four simple rules can give you the confidence and knowledge for a lifetime of safe handling of firearms. Whether you choose to carry for protection, shoot recreationally or just want to be safe, these four rules are worth learning. It's your responsibility to be safe when around firearms.
Be safe. Be confident. Be a steward for the responsible handling of firearms.
