    'The Two Most Important Rules of Firearm Safety'

    This is EXCELLENT...



    Shooting Guide

    This PDF chart was designed to convey gun safety basics to new shooters in a concise, accessible, and arresting manner. Most gun safety posters look like they were designed with a photocopier in the 1970s. I like the tilt, and there's something comforting about the gun angled (relatively safely) down in a "low ready" position. Maybe it's just me.

    I still prefer the 4 rules as equally important for new shooters. Once they get the four basic rules down then the training continues. This is good and has been well done for first time shooters and still mentions the third and to a small degree the forth. I like the way he addresses the dropped gun and the line forward of the dotted line.

    I guess if you're going to narrow it down to only a couple I'd reverse the order of his. 1st would be pointed in a safe direction.

    The "Bullets come out here!" part should be bigger

    That's a lot of great info in one place. I'm going to print out a copy and take it with me to review every time I go shooting with a newbie.

    Good for me to review once in a while as well.

    Thanks for posting.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Simple and to the point. This should be posted in some of the local gun shops I frequent. You'd be surprised how many people don't follow these basics in a gun shop.

    as the rules should be reviewed before a gun is presented it really doesnt matter what order theyre in...only that they are followed...

    Great to use for prepping up a newbie well before you take them out to shoot.

    I think the four rules are all equally important. Love the poster.
