    This is what we get hammered with in out Canadian firearm safety classes. This has to be burnt in your mind and has to become muscle memory every time you touch a firearm or you will fail. Sadly some of us tend to forget about it.

    PROVE it safe:

    Point the firearm in the safest available direction.
    Remove all cartridges if any.
    Observe the chamber.
    Verify the feeding path
    Examine the bore for obstructions

    Edit:
    Of course it doesn't apply for any kind of carry or home defence but it always apply when handling or cleaning a firearm

    Firearm safety...The safest gun I own is a Browning BT-99. If the action is closed it is OFF safe and ready to fire. If the action is open it is ON safe and not ready to fire.

    The other day I posted about a shooting accident that closed a Trap range ( along with drinking at the range ). The accident was caused by a " clouded " mind and using the same shooting jacket for 12s and 20s. Winchester 101 12ga. loaded with a 20ga. followed by a 12ga. The shooter had a few drinks while playing cards in the club house. He was on the Trap line and reached into his shell pocket and loaded the 20ga. shell. When it came time for him to shoot he looked down and saw no shell in the gun. He then loaded a 12ga. The gun blew up and broke his arm also wounding the people on each side of him. All required surgery...

    2015. People still think it's okay to "have a few drinks" and drive, shoot, boat, whatever… There are a few activities that one can engage in after having a few drinks in which the principles and those around them are not in some degree of danger. Personally, and not just because I do not drink at all, I cannot imagine any establishment allowing access to firearms after alcohol. That's just stupid.

    I totally agree with you; I won't even go to a restaurant and order food cooked with wine because I conceal carry...

    Firearms and alcohol, like automobiles and alcohol, do not mix well.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Alcohol has its uses and it is very good for those uses. Once I decided to get out of the boat and wade into a pond where I thought I could see redfish tailing. I found no redfish but got off into an oyster bed with my bare feet. For those unfamiliar, it's like walking on ragged glass. I did get back to the boat and when I got back to the ramp I poured isopropyl alcohol on the bottom of my feet and scrubbed them with an old toothbrush. I have pulled my own tooth once and I have done that once. I'll opt for the tooth if given the choice again. That hurt as much as anything I have ever experienced. My feet didn't get infected either.

    So, alcohol has its uses.

    Harvey's Trap Club near Carson City, NV was a beautiful shooting club...very high end. They had a very large bar that over looked the Trap / Skeet ranges. Super good food in the restaurant as well. Any member that went into the bar was finished shooting for the day. Your shotgun was held in the club house armory by the Range Master's assistants. If you had more than a few drinks the cub limo would take you home.

    I am always appalled by the people that think they know their drinking limit. The man that blew up that beautiful Winchester 101 and wounded two of his friends still feels bad about his error.

    A person can be a functioning alcoholic and be perfectly normal in every way after one drink. An accident with any alcohol in your system at all is not an accident.
