Hey guys, I wanted to talk to those who may be considering purchasing their first firearm, but they might have some concerns and fears.
First off I want to reaffirm that being afraid is not a bad thing. It’s a good thing to be a little afraid and cautious, because that's what keeps others safe. That being said, there are a couple of things to always remember with firearms, especially if you're looking to purchase or may already have one but you're a beginner.
The ”four basic safety rules“ first thing you want to remember.
The first rule is to treat every firearm as if it were loaded, meaning you always keep the pistol pointed in a safe direction. Second is to always keep your finger off the trigger until you're ready to fire, this ensures that you don’t accidentally misfire. Third is to always be certain of the targets in the surrounding area.
Now there is a Glock 17 reset pistol, which is distinguished by its red frame and is a designated training pistol. There's tons of firearms that have no live firearm capabilities, that you can practice all your safe gun handling with this particular pistol. It would really be a good start for those who are hesitant to handle a firearm.
Just remember to always adhere to the proper safety rules...
