6 Know them, live them, eat them, sleep them, breath them, be them… Be an example for everyone around you!!! Remember, who is responsible for gun safety?

7  1) ALWAYS treat EVERY gun as if it were loaded!  2) NEVER let the muzzle of a weapon cover ANYTHING you are not willing to DESTROY!  3) Keep your finger OFF the trigger and out of the trigger guard until your sights are on the target and you are ready to shoot!  4) Always be aware of your target and what is beyond it!

9  What is an “AD”… An “Accidental Discharge”  How do we check to see if a gun is unloaded?  Follow the rules of firearms safety.  Keep all ammunition in ANOTHER ROOM when cleaning/practicing with/sleeping with your gun!  If in doubt take it to a gunsmith!  Follow all manufacturers recommendations!  If you own a gun YOU WILL have an accidental discharge; all you can do is make sure no one gets hurt when it happens!

10  Long guns – Rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers, and some weapons of mass destruction :-D  Handguns – Pistols, “Derringers”, palm pistols, bang stix, etc.  Always check state and local laws for the legality of both long guns and handguns.  The NFA (National Firearms Act)

11  Bolt  Pump  Semi  Full  Lever  “Safe action”  Rolling block  Trap door  Double/single  (There are others out there)

12  Definition – Ballistics is the science that deals with motion, behavior, and the effects of projectiles, especially bullets, gravity bombs and rockets.  Three types of ballistics. - Internal - External - Terminal (Everyone’s Favorite)

13  Internal – The behavior of a projectile from the time of its propellant’s ignition until it exits the barrel.  External – The behavior of a non-powered projectile in flight. (Arguably the most complicated)  Terminal – Sometimes called “Transitional” is the behavior of the projectile as it comes to rest in a medium.

15  Always follow manufacturers recommendations.  Invest in a proper cleaning kit.  Gun cleaning is a part of gun ownership.  A dirty gun is a dangerous gun.  Use the appropriate solvents and oils (Hoppe’s, etc)  Do NOT over-oil or over-grease.  Know how to disassemble/reassemble your weapon.  Function checks.  If in doubt GO TO A GUNSMITH.

16  Lights  Lasers  Optics  ALWAYS follow your manufacturers recommendations.  Do not apply gun cleaning solvents to the above items; remove them from the gun prior to cleaning if necessary.  Check “return to zero” on all optics and lasers after cleaning or removing them.

17  Do you own a gun safe? You should!  Dessicant  Chemical  Electronic  Cosmoline  Gun socks  Ammunition cans  Batteries? (They leak!)  Fire?

18  This will “cut ‘em in half” - seriously?  This will blow them off their feet – It’s basic physics.  Hollywood’s “one shot, one kill”  MOA – Minute of angle… This is true but I’ve never met anyone who can shoot the nuts off of a flea at 1000 yards!  The “Iraqi off-hand”  “Why didn’t the cops just shoot the gun out of his hand?”  “Silencers” – Suppressors… Sorry, It just doesn’t work that way.  What myths have you heard?
