Huh! What is this, some sort of trick question?
Here's the latest version of Cooper's Four Rules Of Firearm Safety
. There is never an acceptable reason to make an exception - Never! You should burn them into you brain until you're able to repeat them in your sleep.
1. The gun is always loaded!
2. Never allow the muzzle to point at anything you are unwilling to see destroyed!

4. Clearly identify your target, and what is behind it!
