Good post, I've got that spiel pretty much memorized. Briefed a new shooter and her mom who hasn't shot in years today. Never heard of the TAB-K but I named those as the most important rules to remember off the top of my head.

I love teaching new shooters, as I've been trained by the scouts and military how to handle weapons safely. I've seen so many people acting like fools at ranges, and I always wonder where they learned their bad habits. I feel good helping people learn to shoot safely! This is a good post!

Good post.

I will say that Squib loads scare me. It's a good thing to be scared of because it makes you more alert.

Bill at Hap Baker told me about a guy at the pistol range that had 3 or 4 squibs in a row.
And never removed any of them from the barrel. He brought the gun to bill and told him he couldn't get the cylinder to open. Bill said the barrel was full of bullets.
How can anyone be that dumb? And he reloaded. Wow.

Just takes a clean record and money to own a weapon. Unfortunately, no common sense required.

It's definately a good post and worthy of becoming a sticky IMHO.

It's a shame there are so many dumb asses that go to ranges who don't follow basic, common sense safety and courtesy tenets.

Great post Holepunch,
I would like to add that everyone please read thier manual and know how thier weapons work so that when a cease fire is called you will know how to make the gun safe. It also helps if and when you have a problem you will know what to do.
Thanks

something for everyone to remember, if something happens, the one thing that none of us can do is put that bullet back in the barrel. that's why in our sport safety has to be number one

Stumbled across this today. An oldie but a goodie. Great read for everybody, even those who know it inside and out. Safety first, then teamwork.
