It makes one shudder...

hunter swinging on game, shoots victim - horseplay with a gun - victim moves into line of fire - shooting from a vehicle - shooter unsure of backdrop - mistaken for game - loaded firearm in a vehicle - unsafe crossing of an obstacle - unsafe loading/unloading - unsecured gun rest - obstruction in the barrel - defective firearm or ammunition - trigger caught on an object - shooter stumbled and fell - victim out of sight.
These are the major causes of most accidents.

Follow These Rules - and you will never cause accidents

  • Assume every gun is loaded until you have checked it yourself
  • Always point your gun in a safe direction
  • Keep your finger off the trigger - until you are ready to shoot
  • Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it
