    This is how to teach your children that guns are dangerous.

    Tell them that if they want to know if the gun is loaded, to put their hand over the end of the barrel and pull the trigger.

    Hopefully, they’ll know better than that, and it makes them think.

    Default #7 & 10 is just plain...

    irresponsible....& #5

    & I wouldn't teach a child to squeeze the trigger until they're ready to kill or hit a target with it...to check to see if it's loaded is alway look in the chamber of the weapon...

    Sometimes the far left need things explained in very simple terms and most of the time its still over their heads!

    They take stuff like this humor and run with it cuz they're not smart enough to know the difference.

    Kinda like not knowing the difference between making out in the bush and making out with the bush!

    I like it.........I Like it a Lot! Hunt AK you should do one on the 10 safety tips for proper re-loading! I walked in on a buddy who was doing a little re-loading, and as I stood there wondering why he was having such a hard time working the press (thinking he doesnt have enough or any lube on the cases) I notice that he is jamming fully loaded ammo thru his sizer die body, because he "forgot" to resize the cases and they wouldnt chamber! Now, I dont recall ever reading that little time saving tip in my reloading manuals! So you could start with "re-loading manuals are just just to make your re-loading bench look cool......if they didnt want you to put that much powder in the case, then they would have made the cases smaller......go ahead....filler up"

    Glad you liked it but I cannot claim to have come up with this. Funny, though.

    I’m waiting for someone to say they are OFFENDED, and that we aren’t taking Gun Safety seriously enough.

    IMO, every one of these tips make you think. Sure they’re funny, but there is added value to them. Keep’em comin.

    It’s like why the Military all dress alike, (in the same uniforms). Obviously, it’s so we can tell them apart.

    Default OK, I'll bite...

    I'm offended and you guys aren't taking gun safety seriously enough!

    <soapbox mode on> The 5 gun safety rules should be taught to everyone. There should be community service TV ads (especially during saturday morning cartoons) and it should be in the school curriculum starting at the preschool level and continuing into college.

    1. All guns are always loaded and should be treated as such at all times.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target and you are ready to fire.
    4. Be sure of the target, as well as the surroundings and beyond.
    5. When it is neccessary to decock a firearm by pulling the trigger, ensure the muzzle is pointed at a safe backstop and press check the chamber to ensure it is empty immediately prior to pulling the trigger.

    <soapbox mode off>

    There, now we have the counterpoint out of the way.
    As for the original post, some of it was mildly amusing, but I have to wonder if there is a better humorous version out there somewhere...

    Gun handling, and the safety aspects of it are largely just a matter of common sense. These 5 tips may help.

    1. Just because some guns are loaded, that doesn’t mean that they all are.

    2. Pointing is good practice.

    3. You can save time by having your finger on the trigger at all times.

    4. Get ready to shoot, then select your target, or targets.

    5. Keep your gun cocked. Otherwise, it won’t go off when you need it to.

    Smitty, Perhaps you can add: "why waste money on binoculars, when you have a perfectly good monocular already mounted on your rifle that is perfect for star gazing, bird watching, and looking at other hunters to see if you know them" and it comes attached to a handy holding stick!

    6. If you have a Telescopic Sight on your rifle, binoculars are optional, since the scope is also a great aid to your vision, easy to hold steady, and one which doesn’t need adjusting.
