Basic Gun Safety Considerations for Colorado
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 important tasks,
cleaning your gun.
Colorado Gun Training
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 gun safety rules, developing the skill to
apply those rules, and a "safety-first" attitude is paramount to our .
We do not believe in firearm “accidents” - we believe in
through proper, formal,
. We do not
believe a firearm sitting on the kitchen table will “accidently” discharge a round. We do not believe a firearm locked in a safe will
“accidently” find its way to a shooting spree. In short, we believe in responsibility
All “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 gun training rules, and don't practice
gun ownership rules
, an incident, not an accident, will occur.
Fundamental Rules for Safe Gun Handling
three basic rules for safe gun handling:
ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is a core gun safety requirement. If the gun is not pointed at an intended target, it cannot possibly destroy the 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.
The gun is not going to shoot without someone pulling the trigger-it’s a matter of physics-if there is no one pulling the
trigger, then on one is applying pressure to the trigger, the gun will not discharge. If responsible gun 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 the gun 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 its locked in a safe, or in the night stand next to you, don't place the magazine into the gun--until it is ready to
be used! If the gun is a revolver, have your ammunition in a speed loader -- the same principles apply regardless of the
type of gun you own.
You don't need a
gun training class
to teach you common sense - you need is a common sense class that teaches you about
safe gun handling. No one is taught a common sense approach to gun handling in school - this is a specialized area where
Colorado Certified NRA Instructors
can teach and instill “best practices” related to safe gun handling.
