4 Universal Firearm Safety Rules

  1. All Guns should be treated as LOADED!
  2. Never point a muzzle at anything you DON'T want to DESTROY.
  3. Keep your finder off the trigger until your sights are on target and you've made the decision to shoot.
  4. Be aware of your target, what's near it and beyond it.
