The 4 Rules of Gun Safety

I had my first kill at 12 years old. Harrison Duck club just east of the Salt Lake City International Airport.

At a very young age I was taught how to properly handle a firearm by my father. Something I am extremely grateful for and has given me confidence whenever I handle a firearm. 

Even before he would hand over a gun to me, I was required to recite the 4 rules of Gun Safety.

  1. All Guns are always loaded
  2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to shoot
  3. Never let your muzzle cover anything you're not willing to destroy or pay for
  4. Beware of your target, your back stop, and beyond.

These four rules taught me the importance of being a responsible gun owner. It created a trust in myself and an understanding that I'm in control and responsible for the gun that is in my hands! But also creates a trust in others around you.

Nobody wants to be around someone who doesn't understand how to properly handle a firearm. Be educated and practice these 4 rules at ALL times.
