rule number two – always keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready
to shoot. Movies and TV have made people believe that the natural place for your
finger is on the trigger. They are very wrong. Your finger belongs
on the frame of your firearm. The trigger is only a temporary position while
firing. Let’s pretend that you’re home one night and you hear someone
attempting to enter your home. You run into your bedroom, grab your gun and you
take cover behind the bed with the gun pointed at the door. When do you put your
finger on that trigger? Only when the attacker enters the room and you’re
ready to shoot. Not a moment sooner. Every time you pick up your firearm, make
sure your finger is stuck to the slide. It will take you a little bit of time to
get used to this but you must practice. Every time you pick up your firearm, look
to see where your finger is resting. If it’s near the trigger, set the firearm
down and try it again. If you can master this one rule, your chances of an
accidental shooting will decrease significantly. If you’re new to firearms
