The 4 rules of gun safety?
I keep reading about the 4 golden rules of gun safety, however most don't define them. I guess you are just supposed to know. I've been shooting/hunting for 30 some odd years and never had a negligent discharge. Here is what I was taught by my father and grandfather, let's see what you guys think.
- A firearm is loaded until you confirm otherwise.
- Never point at something you don't intend to dispatch.
- Always keep safety on/ finger off trigger until you are ready to fire.
- Be aware of what is behind your target.
Is there something I missed? Have I been doing it wrong all these years?
