Here are some of my weapon safety rules, as taught by my Marine father. Use these to safely handle weapons, whether they are real weapons or bb guns, pellet guns, rifles, air rifles, etc.

Remember the acronym TNKK.

  • TREAT every weapon as if it were loaded.
  • NEVER point the weapon at anything you don’t intend to shoot.
  • KEEP your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
  • KEEP the weapon on SAFE until you’re ready to fire.
