Firearms Safety

Just a couple of stories to remind you about basic weapons safety. One is kinda funny and the other is tragic.

The kinda funny one.

Ore. hunter says dog shot him in the leg | More Oregon News | NWCN.com | Northwest News and Weather

The tragic one.

Local News | 6-year-old Marysville girl fatally shot in head | Seattle Times Newspaper

Just remember a weapon is only clear and "safe" when you are holding it and have verified it.

All my guns are loaded- it seems that accidents happen with "unloaded" guns.

That's what I tell the Coast Guard when they board me, and I get a look then

Yeah always treat your guns as if they are loaded. Guns and alcohol don't mix.

While I agree in theory I have also been on the other side of the coin and that is when training kicks in. Magazine out, chamber clear, safety on, finger off the trigger. That is my routine everytime I pick one up same with my kids.

Always treat it as if it's loaded. Always teach kids the proper way of handling with respect.

I go to a lot of gun shows and the amount of muzzel pointed at you is very nervracking. If I am looking at a firearm The muzzel never points at anyone and always treat as loaded. Good thread alot of pepole do not have respect for firearms as they deserv.

To add to this. When looking at any firearm at a gun store, show, etc., I always open the action just to double, triple check that the gun is clear. You never know who had it last.

Agreed, that drives me nuts. I don't trust all of those people enough to be pointing guns at me. Another thing to add is to not trust the action. Physically look into the chamber and make sure it's clear.
