The Golden Rules of Firearm Safety

  • Treat every firearm as if it is loaded
  • Never point a firearm at anything you are note prepared to shoot – even if you believe it is unloaded
  • Your finger stays off the trigger, until your sights are on target (on target – on trigger, off target – off trigger)
  • Know your target and what is beyond your target
  • The most dangerous gun is the one you haven’t personally checked clear
  • Always point the muzzle of your firearm in a safe direction
  • Always wear ear and eye protection when firing a gun, whether on range or in the field
  • Pass or accept only clear and unloaded firearms
  • Always keep firearms secured away from children
  • Don’t rely on safety catches alone – they can wear and break over time
  • Always thoroughly check a firearm before cleaning and disassembling
