I don’t care what your credentials are, I will always treat all guns as if they are loaded all the time.

And mine are loaded all the time except during storage, cleaning, or when being reloaded.

There is nothing wrong with Rule #1.

ADs happen when people violate Rule #1.

There are only three rules: Shoot, Shovel, Shut Up.

A friend will help you move.

A true friend will help you move the body.

I do as well.

But I always point it in a safe direction
and keep my finger off the trigger.

Then drop the magazine

Then I expect the chamber.

This for a Pistol.

All NDs occur when the operator puts
their finger on the trigger.

I would say "duh" but I also follow the same protocols with certain rifles as well.

If one follows Cooper's rules, one will be safe.

If not, the safety is not possible.

Sorry; I think your religion is in error.

3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target.

AD/ND avoidance.

Sorry that you don't like Cooper. I don't care. The rules make sense.

Funny thing is that you follow them, too.

AD/ND avoidance.

There is no such thing as an accidental discharge.

A negligent discharge is caused by either ignorance or carelessness.

The person can be considered ignorant, if they have not been trained.

They are careless, if they disregard their training.

Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot

Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use

If you follow these rules—at all times—you will be safe and so will the people around you.

Not true. Others have to follow the rules for you to be safe.

The NRA rule # 3 seems to directly contradict rule #1 from the article.

Your replies might make convincing arguments to your buddies in high school, but this crowd has more reasoning skill.

To bad you didn’t pick any skills for communicating along the way.

I got your attention; Boy !

I have been using and handling firearms
for over sixty-five years.

You seem to have no respect for your elders.

For an claimed instructor, you seem to have a strange avoidance in communicating information to a group of people desiring to be informed.

You are old. I got that.

Did you pick up any useful communicating skills along the way besides insults?
