NRA's Three Fundamental Rules For Gun Safety

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.

This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

The Four Rules of Firearm Safety

  • Rule 1 - ALL guns are ALWAYS loaded.
  • Rule 2 - NEVER let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to KILL or destroy.
  • Rule 3 - Keep your finger OFF THE TRIGGER until your sights are on target and are ready to fire.
  • Rule 4 - Be sure of your target. Know what it is, what is in line with it, and what is behind and around it.
  • *Follow all four rules at all times and accidents will never happen
