When it comes to firearm safety and preventing a mishap, it is real simple. Remember to THINK…

Treat every weapon as if it is loaded.

Handle every weapon with care.

Identify the target before you fire.

Never point the muzzle at anything you don’t intend to shoot.

Keep the weapon on safe and your finger off the trigger until you intend to fire.
