Before we get into this, please research your local laws regarding the use of lethal self-defense. Discharging your firearm in a self-defense situation is an absolute last resort. Your life will immediately change forever. We are not lawyers, and cannot offer legal advice. We are also going to offer suggestions, but these are just our opinions. Use your own judgement and common sense when making any decisions.
Firearms safety is the responsibility of anyone who owns a firearm.
Cardinal Rules of Firearms Safety
1. All firearms are ALWAYS considered loaded until they have been physically and visually checked. Even then, they will ALWAYS be treated as if they were loaded.
2. Your finger will ALWAYS stay off the trigger until the weapon is on target and the decision to fire has been made. Off target – Off trigger.
3. ALWAYS keep the muzzle of your weapon pointed in a “safe direction”. The muzzle of your weapon NEVER points at anything you are not willing to destroy. A “safe direction” is defined as a direction in which should an unintentional discharge occur, the result would NOT be death or personal injury. The Laser Rule – treat your firearm as if it was a laser and it could destroy everything it points at.
4. ALWAYS be sure of your target AND what is beyond it.
Firearms are tools that give people the power to destroy at a distance. Firearms are inherently dangerous. Negligence and accidents can lead to permanent injuries, jail time, and possibly even death.
