The Fundamentals of Firearm Safety
This is an extract from WIKIPEDIA Gun safety. Details can be found here.
Gun safety training seeks to instill a certain mindset and appropriate habits by following specific rules. The mindset is that firearms are inherently dangerous and must always be stored carefully and handled with care. Handlers are taught to treat firearms with respect for their destructive capabilities, and strongly discouraged from playing or toying with firearms, a common cause of accidents. The rules of gun safety follow from this mindset.
In 1902, the English politician and game shooting enthusiast Mark Hanbury Beaufoy wrote some much-quoted verses on gun safety, including many salient points.
His verses "A Father's Advice" begin with the following:
If a sportsman true you'd be
Listen carefully to me:
Never, never, let your gun
Pointed be at anyone...
Yes, these verses might be over hundred years old, be they are still very true in our days.
Please alway remember the vital four ACTS:
• Assume every firearm is loaded
• Control the muzzle direction at all times
• Trigger finger must be kept off the trigger and out of the trigger guard
• See that the firearm is unloaded - PROVE it safe
- Point the firearm in the safest available direction
- Removeall cartridges
- Observe the chamber
- Verify the feeding path
- Examine the bore for obstructions
