Are you new to firearms? Do you want to know about gun trigger safety. Are you looking to build a firm foundation of firearm safety, knowledge, skills, and shooting fundamentals? You have three options to attend a gun safety course. First, you could try to figure things out on your own. I think you can agree that option number one can be a little bit dangerous and very frustrating. Option number two is you can attend a basic pistol course. Now, this type of course is eight hours long. And they typically run between a 125to 150 dollars. I taught these courses for years and I had a really hard time getting people to sign up because it is a very long day and it’s a lot of money. Option number three is the beginners guide to firearms taught by yours truly.
By completing this course, you will be able to demonstrate the eight firearm safety rules. Identify and fix firearm malfunctions. Operate a pistol and a revolver. Make sure your firearm is unloaded. Demonstrate the core shooting fundamentals. Understanding ammunition and how it works. Safely go to the range by yourself. You’re going to learn how to clean and maintain your firearm and how to choose the right firearm for you. This course includes over two hours of instruction, seven handouts and ebooks, home work assignments for you to develop and practice your skills, and also quizzes to make sure you’re learning the really important parts of this lesson.
So how is it possible that there are still so many gun incidents that happen all over the country every single frigg in day. I don’t understand it it’s ridiculous and it could be fixed with education. That’s literally all it takes. Like everything, if you take your time to learn about something, you take away the danger of it, because you understand it, because you’re not afraid of something. That you don’t know how to control or touch or do anything with. So why do I have credibility to talk about firearm safety? They are not uncommon. You’ve probably seen one. You probably own one yourself. Then. Last but not least.
They issue that to you after you complete but your Concealed Carry Course. If you were a kid run away from it find an adult when a big person they need to know about it. Safety rule number one. Treat every weapon as if it were loaded. You see the firearm you can see that the clip is in it and even if there wasn’t even if you were to release it. You should still assume that there is a round in the chamber. Number two. Keep always the finger straight and off the trigger until you’re ready to fire. Where’s my finger? Oh I don’t know I can’t see it. Oh it’s all the way over here. It’s just hugging the side of it. I’m sure you’re a very proficient Call of Duty or Battlefield and none of that matters.
This is a live firearm. This could kill somebody. Stop being ridiculous. Treat with respect. Number three. You shoud never point your weapon at anything where you don’t intend to shoot. And you should really never point it at an individual ever. Unless you absolutely have to protect yourself or you’re playing laser tag cos laser tag is amazing. You should always keep your weapon on safe until you’re ready to fire. Every weapon has a safety on it. And the safety will dictate whether or not you can actually pull the trigger. Yours might be different than mine I typically always have my safety on because then all I have to do is switch it down. Recap! Treat every weapon as if it were loaded. You do this you will be safe every single time. Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you intend to fire that weapon.
Never point your weapon to anything you do not intend to shoot. If it’s not a target do not point at it. You should always keep your weapon on safe until you intend to fire. I can’t go to each and every one of your houses and teach your family how to do that. But I can make a video about it and hope that you show it to your kids or at least have the conversation with them if you own a firearm. It is your responsibility to make sure that everybody around that firearm in your home is trained to handle it safely. If you do something cool with your family to teach them about firearms safety, I would love to hear it.
