    This doesn't mean that you leave all your guns loaded. It means that you treat them as if they are loaded, whether they are actually loaded or not. Following this rule, or the one about not pointing the muzzle at anything you aren't willing to destroy, would have prevented the unfortunate death of Terry Kath alluded to earlier in the thread.


    My bad, complete misreading on my part. Thanks for clearing that up.

              See if you have a gun range in your area that has a class that allows you to try different firearms. If you do, take that class first. I started shoot dam near before I could walk and did so regularly up until I went into the AF. Then I was shooting all the time and seems like I can't really remember a time I wasn't shooting. Safety, Safety, Safety you can't have to much safety and it can't be said enough. Prepare in advance and enjoy the shooting hobby.

                Depending on why you want to get into it, I would recommend either an NRA Hunter Safety course, or some other basic firearm safety course.

                  Hey guys. I'm posting here cause I know there is some 2nd amendment love here. I have no experience with guns and was hoping that you guys had some books for beginners that were worth reading before someone starts down the road of gun ownership. Thanks a lot, bros


                  when I first got into guns I read every gun magazine available

                  when I joined the NRA I started getting the American Rifleman atomatically

                  great stories in it

                    A nice .22 is the way to start. Cheap ammo and plenty choices.

                      agreed

                      make it a revolver... you don't want incriminating litter lying around after the fact, and it sinks just as fast as a 600 dollar glock when you need to toss it in the river

                        it'll sink faster than a Glock.

                          The Glock slide is one heavy chunk o' steel and would make the gun sink like a stone. No worries in the sinkage department.

                              Learn to use a gun, well. I don't mean shooting, I mean basic operation. If you don't know how to unload, check, clean and generally operate your weapon in a safe way - don't get one.

                              Never ever even pick up a gun when you are not awake, aware and 100% alert of your actions and surroundings. That doesn't mean just under the influence (though that would be extra stupid), it means being tired (even a little), distracted, angry or anything of the sort. I had some bad experience with being tired and operating a gun in the army. Ever tried to unload/check an m-4 with the clip still in? Not a good idea.

                              Keep your weapon in the minimal level of readiness possible. That means that it shouldn't be on you when there isn't any necessity to have it there. It shouldn't have the clip in if you aren't going to use it. It SHOULDN'T be loaded if you're not going to shoot. IMO it should be in a safe, disassembled, most of the time.

                              Don't "practice" at home. Don't think you "look cool" with a weapon. Don't ****************ing imitate movies with your gun. Guns are NOT toys. Their only purpose is to kill. If you're not ready to kill - don't use one.

                                How dramatic.

                                Guns absolutely are toys and mine are assembled at all times and most of 'em loaded.

                                They also live in a safe and don't get out much. Keeps them out of trouble. If their only purpose is "to kill," mine have been out of work for years and will most likely stay that way.

                                Don't freak out about the possibility of them suddenly thinking evil thoughts, jumping up and opening fire. Just respect firearms, be safe, and always follow those four rules and you will be fine.
