Yeah, back to basics. It's amazing how many people are shot with "unloaded" guns.
Are these any different than the four we know? Or just his explanation of them?
Great reminder! Thanks.
I have a tattoo that says: "The gun is always loaded." A reminder to me from about a year ago.
Watch the video.
There you go
Answer the question.
You could have watched it by now. It's his take on firearms safety in the real world.
I’m glad to see no discussion of mechanical safety on/safety off positioning, just plain mental safety awareness.
You’re right. I could have...and I probably will. But you have a SOP of posting a video with no explanation, intro, synopsis, reason why somebody should watch it, etc. So I figured I’d ask. 5 of the last 6 topics you’ve started fall into this category. I’m not saying they’re not worth watching...but if you watched it, felt it was worthy of sharing, came here and started a new topic to post it, I just wish you’d provide a little insight as to why any of us should click Play. That’s all.
Thanks for posting up some videos @Amp Mangum...! I always enjoy them.
@BatteryOaksBilly has a target set up that deals with exactly what LAV describes in #1. Next time you are at Battery Oaks, ask Billy to let you shoot the Subpoena...
I actually hadn’t heard “the register position” before.
I like that. I’m gonna try to keep my finger higher.
Mas Ayoob used to teach an "index" position. With 1911's the trigger finger "indexed" on the slide stop button above the trigger. By indexing I mean pressing your finger against the frame and sliding it forward until it stopped against the slide stop button. It does not mean pressing on the button like you're trying to push the slide stop out.
It would be similar with a Glock. His argument was that the slightly bent finger with a little pressure on the slide was more positive than the straight finger. I don't know if he still teaches this, but it's what I've done for many years.
I'm always open to re hear Cooper's 4 rules. Even in a different order and lotsa Vicker's usual "explanation". We lost one of our Alumni for Rule 2..never let your muzzle cross anything you are not willing to Destroy. 3 times in one day...Bad JuJu.
Need to find a good modification to the rules for indoor dry firing.
I want to have a shirt printed that says, "I am not a safe direction".
I'll take 2 XLs!
I am quite sure that @DesignMine could come up with something great. It is just beyond cost prohibitive for him to set up his equipment to print 1 women's small v-neck shirt. (I am size 4 and cannot wear crew neck t-shirts.)
What did you guys have in mind? I might be able to come up with something!
Billy’s in for two, I’ll likely do somethin’ too.
You can usually point in a safe direction even indoors.

I have houses on 4 sides of me, any shot that goes through my walls has a good chance of hitting a house.
