  1. Thank you for sharing the safety tips. Every gun owner MUST know these for the safe handling of the firearms. Even though these are basic safety tips which every firearms safety training institute teach its students but sometimes it is a good idea to revise what we have learned in the past, so that to avoid any accident and mishandling of the guns.
