Bad Gun Handling – Bad Footing

Shooting while on Bad Footing is a bad practice. The weapon recoil can knock you off your feet and that can cause an accident discharge.

Big or small, it is always important to make sure your weapons are always in good condition and you are firing from a stable platform. If you are on Bad Footing you need to fix that before pulling the trigger! Most of us are going to try to stop the fall. That means there is the potential for an accidental discharge which could end disastrously!

This could have ended very poorly.

uns are not toys. Guns are not props for photo shoots. They are dangerous tools. Mishandle them and people will end up hurt.

Why do I show these videos and pictures? Because I like to go to the range and every one of these videos gives the non shooting public a bad impression of the total shooting community.

Always follow the four basic rules of Gun Safety:

  1. Always keep firearms pointed in a safe direction.
  2. Treat all guns as loaded at all times.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
  4. Always be sure of your target and what’s beyond it.

This is a clear violation of Rule 2.

New Shooter – Gun Cherry Popped

My cousin came in to visit from upstate New York and mentioned he’s never fired a gun before. Me, being me, was like, we are absolutely taking care of this!

My cousin, being much smarter than I, was a bit reserved, but was a really good shot for a new shooter. I’ve seen people not even be able to hit the board the target was stapled too. My cousin was able to hit the 10 by 10 inch target on his first 10 shots.

Being a logical, sane person, I started him out on my M&P 22 which he handled well. He also shot my S&W .38 and a 12G with bird shot from my Benelli M2.

I hope he had fun. I may have overwhelmed him with the different guns I had, but I am always excited to introduce someone to shooting.

(No, he does not have a big angular square head, but I figured he didn’t want his face on my blog so I put something obnoxious there instead. If he is showing you this in a bar – rest assured he is very handsome, and a good guy. Don’t break his heart – because I have lots of guns. )
