Jeff Cooper’s Four Rules of Firearm Safety
1. All guns are always loaded.
Always treat a firearm as if it were loaded. Follow rules 2, 3 and 4 even after confirming that it is unloaded.
2. Never point the firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.
Be sure to always point the firearm in a safe direction. Never fool around.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target.
Failure to follow this rule is the primary cause of accidental firearm discharges.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Know exactly what is being shot at and what the bullet could hit beyond or behind the target.
