Regardless of your firearms use, be it recreational, hunting, or personal protection; safety is absolutely imperative. The NRA teaches three fundamental rules for gun handling that need to be followed in all situations.
1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
2. Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
3. Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
