1. Assume every firearm is loaded.
Always respect and treat a firearm as though it is loaded, regardless of what
other people tell you about the gun. They could be wrong!
2. Control the muzzle direction at all times.
Do not point a firearm at something that you do not intend to shoot. Only
point a gun at your intended target.
3. Trigger finger off trigger and out of trigger guard.
Keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until you are
ready to pull the trigger.
4. See that the area and target is safe.
Make sure the target and the surrounding area is safe to shoot at before firing.
