Safe Gun Handling!

Posted on

Remember while handling your firearm/ pistol keep your trigger/ index finger outside of the trigger guard at all times to prevent an accidental discharge. A good place to have your index finger would be high on the slide (If semi-automatic) or high on the trigger guard on a revolver (Do not put an fingers in front of cylinder when firing the revolver the discharge from the cartridge can cause significant damage to your fingers). Trigger finger goes in trigger guard and on trigger when ready to shoot your firearm. Remember “Off target, Off trigger”!
