Firearms Safety

I found this video on YouTube a few days ago, and I thought it was so revealing and noteworthy that it became the first video I added to my playlist on my YouTube channel.

Take comfort in knowing that during a Zombie Apocalypse or any other post collapse survival situation, these people and millions like them will be running around the streets armed.  A big reason that a large percentage of the population will be wiped out within the first couple of months is that these people will run around shooting each other and themselves, and unfortunately, people who are prepared and squared away.

Stay off the streets whenever possible during the first couple of months after the collapse.  It will be a chaotic, uncertain, scary time, and that's just because of the people who will panic and riot or riot and then panic.  But I digress.

Muzzle management and trigger finger discipline are the two cardinal rules of firearms safety.  If you do nothing else right but those two things, the chances of someone being injured or killed negligently goes way, way down.  A lot of the examples in this video might be sort of funny if they weren't so sad, scary, and tragic.

Seek qualified firearms instruction if you don't know what you are doing.  A little common sense never hurt either.  Seriously, if you give a toddler a gun to play with and you get shot in the stomach, that one's on you dude.  What did you expect?  Genius.  Get it together people.

  1. If you don't have any knowledge about guns and it use, I prefer you to go for gun safety class to cover all rules, techniques, procedures and other information that may have unknowingly been left out of your informal safety education. This type of course cover a safe method of handling a firearm, or other equipment.
