Gun Safety

The Four Rules
1. All firearms are always loaded
2. Never let the muzzle of a firearm point at anything you are not willing to destroy
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot
4. Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it



The Five Rules of Concealed Carry
1. Your concealed handgun is for protection of life only.
2. Know exactly when you can use your gun.
3. If you can run away — RUN!
4. Display your gun, be prepared to go to jail.
5. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you.

Talking To The Police


I took  a friend to the range the other day to do some shooting. I went over the “four rules” and she said, “Hey, that’s pretty good stuff, why doesn’t anyone teach that?”   Which got me to thinking… and I decided to make gun safety post.

As an American, I practice the first and second amendment every day.   There are a lot of people that carry. Along with that, there are a lot of hazards that everyday people can get into. The whole Travon Martin fiasco for example.  It was clear that George Zimmerman was fighting for his life against a stronger, faster, yet unarmed man.  I am sure that poor George would have been just another guy killed by a black youth somewhere on the third page of the local news paper if he hadn’t fired that fatal shot.

I have some really good advice I took from my friends Xavier’s site:


The “four rules” is not original. They are universal. Every gun instructor, every shooter, every person that even owns a gun should have these four rules committed to memory.  Every single time someone gets shot “accidentally” by a hunting mistake or any negligent discharge, it is because of breaking one of these rules.

“The Five rules of Concealed Carry” could be original material from Xavier.  I don’t know. I thought that they were very good and very helpful.  I did obtain permission  to use them anyway.  And the last thing, is the video about not talking to the police.  This goes against everything that you were taught as a kid and respecting the police. I respect the police, but if I perceive myself getting into a legal issue, I clam up and save it for the judge or even better, a lawyer.  The video is kind of long, but it is really worth it.  Great advice!

  1. The rules of concealed carry above may be the law.

    It should be legal to use a gun to protect your property and protect yourself from injury. If threatened with violence, you should be allowed to use your gun. The more people used guns to protect themselves and their property, the better the nation would be.

    Censorship is evil.

    • I truely believe you and that you are totally correct. Unfortunately, the politically correctness in this country has done its damage. A man legally carrying an open carry pistol is viewed upon similarly to a man sitting in a van near a elementary school. Someone will call the police and make an uproar. The police will by all rights feel obligated to do something. You will probably have your totally legal sidearm taken from you. This country has gone so incredibly far down the toilet towards communism.
