Exclamation Safety, Safety, Safety

This may have been posted elsewhere, and I missed it, but we can never stress safety enough.

1. The gun is ALWAYS loaded

2. NEVER point a gun at anything you do not want to destroy.

3. Keep your finger OFF the trigger until your sights are on target.

4. Know your TARGET and what is beyond it.


If you are not careful, this could happen to you .... or worse.

That's already been posted, I think it was Jeff that did it. We determined that they were both idiots.

I looked briefly for it. Figured having it attached to the safety rules wouldn't hurt.

Not only should we always be safe, but if you have children around lock them up...
This family learned that in the worst kind of way on Monday here in the Show Me State...

I saw that on the news earlier today, a horribly sad story.

It ain't just gun, guys. You have no idea how many clients have sliced themselves--and I mean badly--only seconds after I have said, "Don't put your thumb on the edge."

Why is it that idiots check for loaded chambers and sharp edges with their fingers? I mean, shouldn't you expect a firearm to discharge or an edge to cut you when you do the very thing that activates the danger?
