The 5th rule–don’t go shooting with anyone who doesn’t know the first 4 rules. :slight_smile:

A mantra my first instructor gave me before I took my first learning shots:

Never un holster a gun you don’t intend to use - ( or clean, put away, etc )

Never point a gun at something you don’t intend to shoot

Never shoot anything you don’t intend to kill

The message was clear, it’s not a toy, so don’t play with it. Always handle it with known purpose , And always do so correctly aware of the potential results.

We created a few downloadable items as a guide. Just a couple tools we use. :slight_smile:

Sounds basic, but shoot and shoot often. As often as you can, plus some.
