He DID it! –
Tim Shoots His Thumb Off on ‘Doomsday Preppers’ Shooting “accident” on firing range.
We recommend that everyone – regardless of intent to own a firearm or not – take a gun safety class. These are readily available and usually run 2-3 hours. Participants can expect to learn how to handle firearms, determine if they are loaded, and how to make them safe, among other skills.
If firearm safety rules and guidelines are important for non-gun owners, they are even more so for gun owners. Because there is no competency test in order purchase a firearm, it is up to the gun owner to ensure a good working knowledge of their firearm and how to use it. Taking a class, again, is highly recommended.
