Some Safety Rules When Owning A GunIntroductionSome of these rules involve general safety, while others involve hunting and range safety. Make no mistake, guns are not a toy(though) some people treat them as such. You should never have or use a gun unless you know what you are doing, and have been properly trained(in all areas), and aspects of gun usage. 1)The Gun BarrelSay, for example, you want to use 9mm gun. You need to do the correct research before you buy. There is one resource that you will find invaluable, and that is AmmoPile.com.This is one of the best sites you can look to for information on buying handgun ammo.

Knowing your surroundings at all times can help reduce the chances of a misfire or accidentally pointing the gun in the wrong direction. It does happen. We have heard a lot of news stories about people accidentally misfiring their gun(whether they were cleaning it or doing something else), and it ended up shooting the wrong thing or person. Please be aware of your surroundings at all times. That is one more life you save in the process.4)The Shooting RangeWhen you go to the range, please follow all the rules listed outside and in. The riles are there for a reason. Please abide by them at all times.5)Locked and LoadedPlease keep your gun on the safe until you know for sure you intend to shoot. Only have the gun locked, loaded, and ready, when you are absolutely sure you are going to use it. 6)Going HuntingFollw the rules. Never climb on anything with your gun in your hand or out of its safe. That could cause irreversible damage if the gun accidentally goes off. Make sure you know where others are when you hunt. That will reduce the chances of you hitting something or someone you did not mean to. One final thing: Never shoot if you are in doubt.
