    6)Never have a negligent discharge like my own.

    7)Be thankful that if you do have a ND that you had one occur, and learn from it.

    Rule #1: There are NO redo's when it comes to bullets. They are like farts. Once let go there is no taking it back.

    Rule #2: Guns are not toys and should not be treated as such. While fun, they are increadably dangerous tools. Would you put your hand in a punch press and hit the button just because someone told you it was unplugged? No. Same with Guns, They are always loaded.

    Rule #3: Don't aim at anything you wont miss when its gone. Lining up at a 5000$ plasma tv bad guy? Bad Idea. Wifes cat? go watch boondock saints.

    Rule #4: Bullets go through things. Its what they do. Make sure the wifes cat is not down range of your target.

    I've got the big four of course, plus this one:

    #5: Never hand someone a loaded gun, unless you want to get shot. Always unload the weapon and present it with the action locked open.

    When I instruct tactical training for the real world it is only"target sure and muzzle aware". You can and will point your gun at something you may not destroy and your finger will probably be on the trigger because sights really don't matter in close in situations.

    With experience comes control.

    Static range rules are important but be ready for the real world.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Well stated. I had one. Best thing that ever happened to me after years of gun handling I had become complacent. Thank God no one was hurt, except me a little. NEVER AGAIN!

    I will add one other that I learned at Parris Island. It is more of a marksmanship rule, but it applies to safety and muzzle awareness as well.

    "Bullets go where the weapon is pointed or aimed, not where you will them to go."
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    A good one. However, I'd modify that slightly to say "present it with the action locked open if possible." The action on some guns (AKs for instance) can't be locked open.

    There's Something to That 'Finger' Thing...

    Keep your finger off of the trigger...all else will fall in line...

    Unless you have one of them thar' evil guns that shoot for no reason...the finger is the trick...

    I have one rule, and only one rule.

    DO NOT BE STUPID OR SHOOT WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE.

    As has been discussed, at times in the real world you're going to point the weapon at things you do not wish to destroy. As Gabe Suarez discussed in a recent article, at times you may even have your finger on the trigger when you are not yet on target. If you're not stupid, it isn't that important. Included in not being stupid would be to never sweep a team mate/friendly, consider where the bullet will land (as was said and is repeated by DR Middlebrooks- bullets never miss- they always hit something. So, make it the bad guy or the ground), and know your own limitations.

    When you're at a static range, follow the big four rules at all times. If you're dry firing in your home follow the big four with the understanding that your "target" is not something you want to destroy and you have triple checked that the gun is unloaded. Still, if seeing a hole in the place where you intend to aim would ruin your day (or life) then don't point that way. When the zombies show up at oh-dark thirty then do what you have to do within your own limits and abilities to make sure that you and your loved ones are not found DRT.

    Whenever you have a firearm in your hands, maintain state of hyper-awareness. If you are hyper-aware then you will know who is around you, where your gun is pointing, what your hands and fingers are doing.

    Accidents happen because people become compalcent after they have done an action multiple times.
