I am sure many of you gave or received a new gun for Christmas this year. I, myself, received a new Smith and Wesson 9mm Shield as a gift. While these machines are beautiful and fun under the right circumstances, they can be dangerous if you do not know how to handle them.
Don’t be that guy. Take a beginner’s class if you do not know how to handle a firearm, or go shoot with someone who is skilled in the art.
However, even if you choose not to take a class, here are 4 major rules to ALWAYS follow with your gun:
- Always treat a gun as if it is loaded
- Do not point at people, or anything you do not want destroyed
- NEVER put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to pull it
- ALWAYS know what your target is
- Have fun
From our family to yours, we hope you had a Merry Christmas and a have safe New Year!
