Do You Know Your Four Firearm Safety Rules?

Jan 13, 2023
  1. Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded. This means that you should always assume that a gun has a round in the chamber, even if you think it doesn't. This will help prevent accidental discharges.

  2. Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot. This is a cardinal rule of firearm safety and is one that should always be followed. If a gun is pointed at something, it's considered loaded and ready to fire.

  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. This helps to prevent accidental discharges and is a key safety rule to follow when handling firearms.

  4. Be aware of your target and what lies beyond it. This means being aware of what is in front of and beyond your target, including people, animals, buildings and other potential hazards. This will help prevent accidents and ensure that you are shooting in a safe direction.

It's important to remember that these rules are not exhaustive and that firearms should be handled with the utmost care and caution at all times. The best way to stay safe while handling firearms is to receive proper training, practice safe handling techniques and always follow established safety protocols.

We here at Armogan Training always strive to enforce these safety rules. If you look at firearm mishaps it can usually be conclude that one of these four rules were violated.
