Firearms Safety

The four rules of firearms safety are to be observed and practiced throughout the course.

  1. Treat all guns as though they are loaded and always perform a clearance check every time you pick one up.
  2. Never point your gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep you finger off the trigger until you are on target and have made the decision to shoot.
  4. Always be sure of your target and beyond.

Safety is the highest priority in a firearms class. Disregard of the universal safety rules may result in dismissal from class without a refund.
