Hey Syrian Rebels, Keep Yer Eyes Open!

The Four Rules of basic gun safety can be distilled down to these four written by Colonel Jeff Cooper:

  1. All guns are always loaded.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
  4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

I’d like to add one more, keep your eyes open and look at your target:

You know what that one guy in the background is thinking: Yeah, um Mohammed? You gotta open yer eyes when you squeeze that trigger thingy. And you look like a blind pirate with that dumb-azz doo rag you got on. Sheesh. . .

  1. I want to see the rifle that fired the empty casing in the foreground of the pic?

    They could all run behind the guy who fired it!

  3. yeah lets teach everybody everything about guns and tactics so when American soldiers and cops go out to fight bad guys they already have an advantage. Be reponsible in distributing such info don’t make it available to the bad guys – don’t put our hearos at a disadvantage.
