Before entering South River Gun Club, be sure you are aware and fully understand the rules and regulations governing our facility. Most importantly, BE SAFE and follow the four commandments of gun handling:
1) Treat every gun as though it were loaded
2) Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target
3) Do not point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to destroy
4) Be sure of your target and what is behind it
If these simple rules are always followed, most firearms accidents would never happen. Pay considerable attention to rules 2 and 3. When shooting DPA your finger should never be inside of the trigger guard until you are on target and ready to shoot. Always get your finger out of the trigger guard before moving. Always be aware of your muzzle’s direction and keep it safely downrange. Muzzle Safe Points are the limits that a shooter’s muzzle can travel without being unsafe. Be sure to know where these limits are and always keep within them. Certain DPA courses of fire may test your skills of keeping the muzzle in a safe direction. Be mindful of your muzzle and trigger, and you will always shoot safely.
