Firearm Safety, SFC Mark Mebes
While taking this class these three safety steps must ALWAYS be followed to keep the shooters and the coaches safe. Shooters, coaches and range officers are all required to know and follow these rules at all times.
Safety Step # 1
ALWAYS keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
Safety Step # 2
Open the action and check to see if the gun is loaded.
Safety Step # 3
ALWAYS hold or carry a gun so that all fingers are outside the trigger guard and not on the trigger itself. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
