THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SAFE GUN HANDLING

1ST COMMANDMENT: ALWAYS KEEP MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION

2ND COMMANDMENT: FIREARMS SHOULD BE UNLOADED WHEN NOT ACTUALLY IN USE.

3RD COMMANDMENT: DON'T RELY ON YOUR GUN'S SAFETY

4TH COMMANDMENT: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND

5TH COMMANDMENT: USE CORRECT AMMUNITION

6TH COMMANDMENT: IF YOUR GUN FAILS TO FIRE WHEN THE TRIGGER IS PULLED, HANDLE WITH CARE!

7TH COMMANDMENT: ALWAYS WEAR EYE AND EAR PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING.

8TH COMMANDMENT: BE SURE THE BARREL IS CLEAR OF OBSTRUCTIONS BEFORE SHOOTING.

9TH COMMANDMENT: DON'T ALTER OR MODIFY YOUR GUN AND HAVE GUNS SERVICED REGULARLY.

10TH COMMANDMENT: LEARN THE MECHANICAL AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIREARM YOU ARE USING.

A FINAL THOUGHT: THERE'S ONE OTHER RULE YOU MUST FOLLOW WHEN HANDLING FIREARMS. IN FACT, RESPECT FOR THIS RULE IS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY PRACTICE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SAFETY.

THE RULE IS, SHOOT SOBER!!!
