    Firearms Safety Depends on You

    I am a long time advocate of firearms safety and have taught it since the early 80's. I thought it might be pertinent to post a video that was published by the National Shooting Sports Foundation in 2003 and is a great reminder to all of us about the basic rules of firearm safety. Although this video refers mostly to hunting, it also contains a bit of information on handguns. This is by no means meant as a substitute to taking the actual course but just a refresher for those who have and a basic set of rules for gun owners to live by.

    For any member of this forum who needs information on where to take a firearms safety class, you may PM me and I will help find a class near you. Most states offer a hunter education class and also many offer advanced firearm safety classes.

    Some state concealed carry laws require some type of firearms safety education to obtain a permit and that is usually a part of your concealed carry class. There are many states however that do not require it as a prerequisite to a CCW permit.

    I am not a CCW instructor but strictly a firearms safety educator. If I can offer any information, please feel free to contact me.

    On to the video .. http://68.178.158.76/NSSF/FSDY.wmv

    Good for you! You know, the need to reiterate the firearms safety thing never becomes so clear as this time of year, specifically right before hunting season. Already been plenty of "accidents" around here. Some of them that lived through these experiences are missing body parts now. Sad in a way, but I've always figured humanity is going to be it's own downfall. There's definitely a lot of folks out there that need a good start with this, and a lot that need to be reminded. Worst part is, most of them already think they know it already...........that is until they kill a friend, a family member, or wind up in the E.R.

    Good video. We'd all do well to view it at least a couple times per year.

    Useful to me!
    I have been looking at a lot of homemade ones, on youtube. Mainly to see how closely they resemble the official (IDPA etc) safety rules, to see if I can pick up additional useful tips. Most are pitiful.
    This one seemed useful to me.

    Also I note nssf (the OP vid) is available online

    I wonder if it has been updated.

    Very good video. Well written and worthwhile for anyone who handles guns.

    Good on you. You help make the community of law abiding gun owners-carriers (LAGOCs) more responsible, informed, safe and acceptable to the general population. As a LAGOC, I salute you and your work.

    That's interesting. I would definitely favor ALL states making it a prerequisite to a CCW permit or license. I don't see a problem with that at all.

    This came with my Mossberg, in the manual; I believe it says it all:

    From the time an individual picks up a firearm, that person becomes a part of a system over which he has complete control. He is the only part of the system that can make a gun safe - or unsafe.
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
