Well, what can I add?

Oh yes. It is far more important that people learn the purpose for the rules and understand the importance of following them. Don't just accept rote learning, but insist on people understanding the meaning of it all.

Y'all getting into a pissing match over whose rules are better, or easier to learn or easier to understand is a fruitless waste of time. No matter which set of rules you use, as long as they are truly learned (and not just by rote), then you are doing good.

“Tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.”

That says it.

When I took my Missouri CCW course, our instructor also taught us when cleaning, unload in one room and clean in another.

Correct you are. The problem with Cooper is he was an 'officer' not enlisted and this 'elitist' attitude comes through loud and clear. WE are not CHILDREN and he and others who insist on treating adults as children do an extreme disservice to us all.
ALL GUNS ARE NOT ALWAYS LOADED!!!

The NRA RULES ARE GREAT! But Cooper and his elitist followers need to learn a few things about adult education.

I prefer to word it as "treat every gun as though it is loaded."

Welcome to the form!

And I agree with you, this is exactly what I have been saying. We are adults, to talk to us as if we are. Don't address us as if I are preschoolers!

Cooper can't learn anymore.

I think you are raising a storm in a cup.

I do not disagree with most of his teaching, just the elitist way he tries to get then across. And yes I know he is no longer around but his 'people' are.

When I am going through the rule I am HARD LINE that is ALL GUNS ARE LOADED UNTIL YOU CLEAR IT YOUR SELF!!
I don't care if I saw you clear it and passed it to me, MY IMMEDIATE ACTION IS TO DROP THE MAG /OPEN THE CYLINDER AND CHECK THE CHAMBER!
If this hurts your feelings maybe one of us should evaluate the actions and what they represent . I feel that NOT following that sequence is opening themself up to an accident.
