            GUN SAFETY LESSON Posted by Rodger the Real King of France | 4/21/2015 02:45:00 AM | PERMALINK Back Link (6) | Send This Post | HOME


Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”
That's kinda scary. We've been taught that the gun is always loaded, and always ready to go off, but hell, we still have that expectation that the damn safety work, or the round won't go off while you are loading it.
^ If there's any ammo in the magazine, then the gun is loaded.
It's loaded until you visually check the chamber and the magazine and are 100% sure that it's unloaded.

"Always treat a gun as loaded" doesn't teach anything about how to handle it (see: 3 rules), it just kind'a says "be careful." Look, you wouldn't transport, clean, hand off, set down, leave the firing line, store, etc. a loaded gun, so how can you treat it as loaded while doing those?
No, always check the chamber and magazine (remove mag and lock action open if possible). Only when you're 100% sure can you do these "unloaded" things. Even unloaded, the 3 rules apply (muzzle, finger, and ammo discipline).
As for the malfunction, yeah, scary.
Even new guns can have a fault, and the dealer and manufacturer need to be notified ASAP.
Now, imagine what a used gun might be like.
Get a qualified gunsmith to inspect it. Even ol' Uncle Bill's. srsly
I've restored a few basket cases that looked good to the casual observer.
What always amazes us is that folks think a cocked'n'locked 1911 (with TWO safeties) is more "dangerous" than a Glock (with NO safety).

Two safeties?

Can someone familiar with the 1911 explain that to me? I thought there was only one.

(Just looking to be a little less ignorant, that's all)
The venerable Model 1911 has both a thumb-safety and a grip-safety. The former is an active safety and must be manually disengaged in order to fire; the latter is a passive safety and is automatically disengaged when the shooter assumes the proper grip on the weapon. Both safeties must be disengaged in order for the weapon to fire.

Yes, it could be said that we are both (among other things) familiar with the 1911...
