Safe carry of a firearm

There are several ways to carry a gun safely and still have it ready for quick action. Three rules apply to all carrying methods:

  • Muzzle pointed in a safe direction and under control
  • Safety “on” until immediately before you’re ready to shoot
  • Finger outside the trigger guard
