THE THREE GOLDEN RULES OF GUN SAFETY  
(and the invisible fourth rule)

1/  ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED

2/  KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE  TARGET

3/  NEVER POINT THE MUZZLE OF A GUN AT ANYTHING YOU DON'T WANT TO DESTROY

4/  KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND

 
                      OTHER SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
  • Make sure you're using the correct ammunition for your firearm.
    Caliber is marked on the bottom of casing on center fire ammunition and caliber is often marked on the gun.
     
  • Use proper ear and eye protection.
     
  • When picking up a gun, first open the action to make sure it's unloaded.
    If you don't know how to open the action, put it down.
     
  • Firearms and alcohol don't mix.
    This also applies to prescription drugs that may cause drowsiness or dull reflexes.
     
  • If you drop a firearm on the ground, make sure the barrel is clear before firing.
     
  • Before using +P or +P+ (extra pressure) ammunition, make sure your gun is rated for it.
     
  • Make sure your firearms are secured and not accessible to unauthorized persons.
