What Does A Gun Safety Class Include?

In addition to the above material, you’ll also learn the four core rules of being a safe gun owner. These are:

  1. Treat all guns as if they’re loaded, whether they actually are or not.
  2. Never point your firearm unless you intend to shoot.
  3. Wait to touch the trigger until you are aiming and ready to fire.
  4. Beware of your environment by knowing what’s past your target.
