Basic rules of firearms safety: Treat every firearm as if it is loaded. Never point the gun
at anything you’re not willing to destroy. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. Be certain of your target and what’s beyond it. These four rules keep us safe. Nothing bad can happen as long as all of these are being followed. It seems that these rules get tossed out the window while at the gun store. I am more than happy to show you guns behind the counter and help you find the right firearm for you, but I get muzzle swept constantly. NEVER point it at anything you’re not willing to destroy. “I saw him check it before he handed it to me, I know it’s not loaded” Treat EVERY firearm as if it’s loaded. I see fingers on the trigger constantly as well. I’m not trying to be a jerk, but I really don’t like having guns pointed at me. I’m sure that you all feel the same way. Just with shooting, consistency is key. It doesn’t matter where you are or what the situation is, ALWAYS follow the rules. If you’re consistent, accidents won’t happen. If you’re a new shooter and are still learning we will be understanding and help you learn proper
safety to insure you always have a good time out at the range, at home, or wherever you maybe with a firearm.
Unfortunately, we see people break these rules with their own firearms and not just the
ones in the cabinet for sale. We highly encourage people to carry. That’s one of the many
reasons we teach Tactical Pistol for conceal carry. If there isn’t a reason to pull out your firearm, don’t. Especially, unannounced. It may surprise you, I know it surprised me, but it happens often enough. Your carry gun should not be something to show off. I’ll take a look at it if it’s having issues and needs repair, fitting into a holster, or making sure sights and magazines have a proper fit. If that’s the case, let me know before you draw from your holster and I will gladly help with whatever is needed. Please don’t make us stare down the barrel of a gun. It’s no fun. Practice gun safety at all times and nothing bad will happen. If you are inconsistent, you open up the potential of putting holes in things that don’t need them. It’s only four rules to remember. Stay vigilant, stay safe. Thank you.
