4 RULES OF GUN SAFETY
As Daniel Shaw instructs them.
- Be relentlessly aware of your muzzle ensuring it is always pointed in the relative safest direction.
- Keep your finger off the trigger and outside of the trigger guard until you are on target and have made the conscious decision to fire.
- Keep the weapon on safe until you are on target and have made the conscious decision to fire.
- Be certain of your target and that its foreground and background remain clear.

“I prioritize what I teach, by what I think is important through my experiences. Having seen a lot of violence and having been around a lot of really poor gun handlers in violent situations…[T]here were a lot of things that I picked up on that I incorporate into what I teach very naturally;
If you’re talking about fighting with a gun, the most important aspect is to not add more harm to the situation than is already there.
The way that we make a situation worse, is by not adhering to a level of safety that is conducive to keeping people safe.
The standard safety rules, the big 4 that people use, or the 3 from the NRA, those are circumstantial … and there are modifications that need to be made. I know a lot of people don’t like to stray from that because it ‘gets too complicated’. But fighting with a gun is a complicated thing, and if you can’t think on a somewhat complex level, then your ability to operate under pressure is probably not going to be that great.”
