After tossing this around at a local gun club meeting, one night, I went home and came up with the following, 'improvements' to The Four Rules:

JEFF COOPER’S FOUR RULES OF GUN SAFETY

1. The gun is ALWAYS loaded!

2. Never allow the muzzle to point at - or, even, so much as sweep across - ANYTHING you are unwilling to see destroyed!

3. Never put your finger inside the trigger guard until AFTER you have made a conscious decision to fire!

4. CLEARLY identify your target, the target's backstop, and what is beyond!


Don’t embellish these rules. They are what they are for good reasons! In order for any firearm safety rule to become truly effective it must stop being just a rule, and become a PROFOUND PERSONAL HABIT, instead.

I'll stick with the KCV ( King Cooper Version ) myself . It is better to have one set of rules and language everyone can memorize and share .

But that's not how things work out in the real world - Is it. The real world has numerous different versions of the basic (and usually accepted) firearms safety rules. To my mind, words are important; and it's better to actually know and understand firearm safety rather than to simply memorize, 'the rules'.

Which is it better to contemplate:

'Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target'; or,

'Never put your finger inside the trigger guard until AFTER you have made a conscious decision to fire!'

I've seen, at least, several different versions of Cooper's Four Rules. Some have been better stated than others; but the important point is to understand the, 'Why' of things.

In order to do this, a topic needs to be looked at from different points-of-view; and no rule that's always written by rote is, truly, able to accomplish that. (You're, kind 'a, a contrarian; aren't you.)

genius is taking the complicated and making it simple.

lack of genius is fooling around with what has already been perfectly worded, because, well, you are a nit pick. explains why most nit-picks never get accused of being geniuses lol

That's an audacious explanation of genius; and, while I doubt you'll ever have the problem, I'm curious to know, 'How' you came by it? (Perhaps a flash of inspiration somewhere beyond the mean-spirited and pedestrian way in which you write?)

even children can understand the simple rules of gun safety. why go sticking larger and more difficult words in that a child may have a hard time understanding.

K.I.S.S. = Keep It Simple Stupid. IOW's, why make things more complicated than they need to be to convey the proper message.

Did writing this make you feel better, or are the voices in your head still arguing about ways to get you noticed? My advice: Fog Cough!
