Keep Gun Pointed in a Safe Direction

This may seem like common sense, but it is the most important rule of gun safety. You should always keep your gun pointed in a safe direction, meaning that it is not pointing at anything that you do not want to shoot. This includes yourself, others, and animals.

Keep Guns Unloaded

Even if you plan on using your gun, you should keep it unloaded until you are ready to shoot. This will help to prevent any accidents from happening.

Storing gun in safe

Store Guns Properly

When you are not using your gun, it is important to store it properly. This means keeping it in a safe place where children and pets cannot get to it. You may want to have a trigger lock on your gun to ensure that it cannot be fired accidentally.
