TAC-1 Basic Firearms Safety Rules

These four Basic Firearm Safety Rules are not designed for range use only. These rules must be ingrained into your natural thought process and become second nature. Any violation of the Four Basic Firearm Safety Rules is a serious matter with the potential of having tragic results. 

1) Treat all guns as if they are loaded 

2) Never allow the muzzle to cover anything you are not willing to destroy

3) Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are aligned on the target and you intend to shoot

4) Be sure of your target and be aware of your surrounding
