Teaching Safety

A couple of days ago, I recommended Kevin Creighton's article (below) to a friend, who was kind enough to read it and respond.  He pointed out that "he" didn't have to worry about such things, since "he" had no intention of ever becoming an instructor.

To all of my friends:  Anytime you respond to even the most trivial shooting related question, someone believes you know more than they do about the subject.  Now, they are turning to you as an instructor.

Don't send them down a path that will get them or another innocent party hurt.

If you don't want the instructor's job, try:  "I ain't got a freakin' clue."  Then, just walk off.  But, whatever you decide, please don't give the person an answer you just made up.  No answer is better than the wrong answer.

Better yet, work on your own firearms related education, and be able to use what you know to make shooting safer for everyone.

10 Ways to Help Teach Safe Gun Handling

Kevin Creighton

Mentoring someone who is brand-new to firearms can be one of the great joys in life.  You get to show someone the proper and safe way to handle guns; you can change their entire perception of gun ownership (and gun owners); and you get to watch the smile dawn on their face as they realize that yes, they can do this too.  But it's also a terrific responsibility.  Someone who's introduced to firearms in the wrong way can be forever hesitant to pick one up again...or, worse, they may walk away from the experience with a negative view of what guns and shooting are all about.  So it's crucial to make sure that a new shooter's experience is a positive one.  Here are 10 tips to help make sure that it is.    

Train like your life depends on it.
