# Treat a gun as if it's always loaded, especially when it's not. You'd be surprised how many people were buried after being shot by a gun they or the person who shot them ''knew'' was empty. Even if you just took it apart and reassembled it and know that it's 100% unquestionably empty, it's loaded. If nothing else, it keeps you in a good habit.\\

In (way too many) gun stores they have a large closed pickle jar on the counter with pieces of ammunition inside. No, these are not free samples. They are the rounds that are discovered in guns that people bring in to sell or have maintenance or repairs on that the weapon's owner ''assured the sales clerk they checked the weapon and it was was empty''.

3. After the incident, call the police if you haven't already. You want to notify them of what you look like so they don't shoot you, mistaking you for the perp.

* '''NEVER EVER EVER indulge in GunTwirling'''! It violates some of the most important rules on this list (You can't keep your finger off the trigger, you can't control where the barrel is pointed and so on). When you see this trick done in films and TV it's almost certainly being done with a replica or otherwise non-functional gun. If you try this with a real gun then anybody in your vicinity would be a potential target. Including yourself. You do not want a DarwinAward.

** For your reference, Linda Hamilton was subjected to permanent hearing loss due to use of inadequate ear protection on the set of {{Film/Terminator2}} (The offending scene is the one where they're escaping the mental hospital in an elevator). Don't be that guy who says "WHAT?" to everything because you failed to learn from her mistake.
