Basic Firearms Safety
Our students start by learning the basics of firearm safety. Safety is fundamental to all shooting activities-at the range, during competitive
events (like the ), and when performing minor tasks, such as cleaning
Firearms Training in Idaho involves a deep understanding of the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to maintain control over your
environment, your firearm, and the safety of those around you. Basic knowledge of firearm safety rules, developing the skill to apply those
rules, and a safety-first attitude is at the center of our firearms training classes.
Firearm “accidents” are caused by the improper handling of a firearm-this occurs when a person handling a gun does not follow the basic
principles and rules for safe gun handling. If a person is careless, ignores established firearm rules, and don’t practice responsibility, an
incident, not an accident, will occur.
Fundamental Rules for Safe Firearms Handling
National Rifle Association (NRA) teaches us the three basic rules for gun handling:
ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is a core firearms requirement. If a firearm is not pointed at an intended target, it cannot possibly destroy an unintended target.
We believe responsible gun owners will always follow this rule for the safety of themselves and others who are present.
ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
A firearm is not going to shoot without someone pulling the trigger-it’s a matter of physics-if there is no pressure applied to the trigger,
the firearm will not discharge. If responsible firearm owners do not place their finger on the trigger until they are ready to fire, the gun is
not going to discharge a round.
ALWAYS keep your firearm unloaded until ready for use.
If the gun is in your safe, there’s no reason for it to be loaded with ammunition. If you are thinking the gun must be ready at all times,
and it’s locked in a safe, or in the night stand next to you, don’t place the magazine into the gun! If the firearm is a revolver, have your
ammunition in a speed loader until its ready to be used.
You don’t need a
firearm training class to teach you common sense-you need is a common sense class that teaches you the basic
rules of safe firearm handling.
The two are not mutually aligned-no one is taught safe firearms handling in school-
this is a specialized area where Certified NRA instructors in Idaho can teach and instill “best practices” related to safe gun
