The Four Rules
1) All guns are always loaded.
“It’s not loaded” is never an ok answer. Treat all guns as if they are loaded all the time.
2) Never point your muzzle at something that you are not willing to destroy.
Not your TV, not your dog, not your mirror, not your buddy.
3) Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target and you are ready to fire.
Your finger shouldn’t enter the trigger guard until you have your target in your sights. When you come off of your target, your finger comes off the trigger.
4) Know your target and what’s beyond.
Not all bullets stay in the target. You are responsible for every bullet that comes out of your firearm.
