So....we always tend to focus on the negative but never the positive. We love to bash a store or situation where we experienced or witnessed bad gun handling.
How about a new concept?????
Let's start listing instances where we have seen GOOD gun handling. Even if it's a place where you may have seen sub-optimal handling skills.
To refresh everyone's thoughts:
1. Never point the gun at anything you would not be willing to shoot
2. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot
3. keep the gun unloaded until you are using it (Carrying, storing for protective uses, etc)
You should only have ONE set of gun safety rules. A lot of people have a set for loaded, and another set for unloaded guns. This is not a good way to operate. There will come the day when you will switch up the criteria and make a horrible, irreversable mistake.
Now. Go forth and watch. When you see good handling, come back and let us know?
