Re: Different Gun Question

If there is any chance at all you feel you would have to touch a gun then learn as much about them as you can. IMO everyone should at least know how to safely handle a gun. If you can't immediately perform the function you want to do with one, put it down and ask for help.

Whatever your decision turns out to be here are 2 golden rules...

DO NOT PUT YOUR FINGER IN THE TRIGGER GUARD UNLESS YOU INTEND TO SHOOT! PERIOD! NO EXCEPTIONS!

Also pretend a stream of acid is continuously streaming from the barrel and anything made of flesh will die if it gets in front of that barrel or if you point it at someone. Many people get killed by "empty" guns.
