Basic Gun Safety

Our students start by learning the basics of firearm safety. Safety is fundamental to all shooting activities-at the range, during competitive events (like the

Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program

), and when performing minor tasks, such as cleaning your gun.

Gun Training in Idaho

involves a deep understanding of the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary to maintain control over your environment,
your firearm, and the safety of those around you. Basic knowledge of gun safety rules, developing the skill to apply those rules, and a "safety-first"
attitude is paramount to our

gun training classes


We do not believe in firearm “accidents”-we believe in firearm education through proper, formal, gun training. We do not believe a firearm sitting on the
kitchen table will “accidently” discharge a round. We do not believe a firearm locked in a safe will “accidently” find its way to a shooting spree. In short,
we believe in responsibility.
All “accidents” are caused by the improper handling of a firearm-this occurs when a person handling a gun does not follow the basic principles and
rules for safe gun handling. If a person is careless, ignores established gun training rules, and don’t practice responsible gun ownership rules, an
incident, not an accident, will occur.

Fundamental Rules for Safe Gun Handling

There are

three basic rules for safe gun handling


ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

This is a core gun safety requirement. If the gun is not pointed at an intended target, it cannot possibly destroy the target. We believe
responsible gun owners will always follow this rule for the safety of themselves and others who are present.

ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot

The gun is not going to shoot without someone pulling the trigger-it’s a matter of physics-if there is no one pulling the trigger, then on one is
applying pressure to the trigger, the gun will not discharge. If responsible gun owners do not place their finger on the trigger, until they are ready
to fire, the gun is not going to discharge a round.

ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready for use

If the gun is in your safe, there’s no reason for it to be loaded with ammunition. If you are thinking the gun must be ready at all times, and it’s
locked in a safe, or in the nightstand next to you, don’t place the magazine into the gun--until it is ready to be used! If the gun is a revolver, have
your ammunition in a speed loader--tha same principles apply!.

You don’t need a

gun training class

to teach you common sense-you need is a common sense class that teaches you about safe gun handling. No
one is taught a common sense approach to gun handling in school-this is a specialized area where

Idaho Certified NRA Instructors

can teach
and instill “best practices” related to safe gun handling.
