Special Operations Veteran Reviews Proper Firearm Safety For New Shooters
When handling firearms, knowing proper safety measures can save the lives of yourself and those around you. Former Special Operations veteran Mike Glover discusses firearm safety and handling with Amber Landry (https://www.instagram.com/ms.amber.elle/). Whether you have been handling firearms your entire life or are new to guns, a reminder on the firearm safety rules is always a good review. It’s also something that Amber recommends to be introduced to children properly.
The 4 Rules of Firearm Safety are as follows:
-Always treat a firearm as if it is loaded
-Never point a firearm at something you are not willing to destroy
-Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire
-Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it
Having a proper holster is key to safe firearm handling. Check out Fieldcraft Survival’s holster here: https://fieldcraftsurvival.com/inside-the-waistband-iwb-kydex-holster
If I made a boo boo on my finger I’d ask Amber to put a Scooby Doo bandaid on it.
That dudes a giant
Lord knows, I would love to have a gun; but where would I park it?
O that last point isn’t just for kids lol. Very true tho. That works with lots of things too. Tell them they can smoke weed and they wont smoke it 😏 much.
Mike, have you thought about building high end bug out trucks?
Great video 73 de N1AD
I’ve been a gun owner for fifteen years, but you can never drill the safety rules enough. I like Mike’s suggestion about going over the rules every time before you shoot. Amber does a really great job of presenting the material to the average lay person. Good stuff, guys.
Rules of gun safety been around for a long long time, used to be they taught hunter safety in schools, my Papaw taught me the the rules of gun safety back in 1984.
Thanks Mike and Amber.
I totally agree with what was said at the end my kids love to shoot but don’t touch the guns just to touch them cause they don’t need to unless it is to defend themselves or practice hunt etc
4:49… I drop the magazine first…
I got to know you through the Redcell channel. very Good content!
In your eyes, like Koreans, there is a smart and bright eye light.
We cheer you and your family.

Great video for anyone new to gun ownership and a good reminder to all of us! Would amend Rule 4 to “Know your Target and what lies beyond it”
Sharing with my son. Great video.
Excellent point that Amber made near the end there. Although if I may add one thing; that doesn’t just apply to kids.
Rule 1. Keep your finger off the trigger. Rule 2. Keep your fu@king finger off the trigger. Rule 3 keep your fu@king finger off the fu@king trigger.
I learned this from Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch fame.
I remember 40 years ago the smoke session I got for touching my dads rifle without clearing it. Ass chewed out, remedial drills and then “move the woodpile” ~150 pieces of wood from one side of the property to the other by hand. That was his go to punishment for most anything.
My kids have been around firearms ever since they could walk. I had them field striping pistols/rifles @ 8 years old(they wanted to know what dad was doing). I brought them to the range at an early age instilling those 4 rules of gun safety. They learned the safety and respect for the firearm is paramount. I had no issues with my kids and firearms. I read these stories of kids accidentally shooting friends etc., in these cases with firearms, curiosity will kill or injure the cat. So I agree with introducing kids to firearms early if you do own a firearm.
Clear and esy instructions here like always✌ grest work, love your content. You make it easy to understand even for people who have no or little knowledge👍 appreciate your wisdom👍👍😁
When checking the gun, pulling the slide to the rear if you are in a gun range you can do that pointing down-range. However, where should you point it if you are elsewhere? to the ground? I ask because of the potential for an unintentional discharge.
Rule#1. Don’t vote for Democrats. Ultimately they want the Rules of Gun Safety to be in the dust bin of history due to their being no guns via legislation. You do you but for me 2A is the litmus test for all politicians and they have only one shot at giving me the correct answer when I ask them about it. This is the largest black and white area in American life. There are no gray areas in the 2A.
Mike looked like you were dripping blood all over the floor! Snag your finger in that little glock?
I’m interested in hearing how everyone learned ther rules, apparently there are a lot of different ways to memorize safety rules.
I learned them as:
1. Treat every weapon as if it is loaded.
2. Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot.
3. Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you are ready to fire.
4. Keep the weapon on safe until you are ready to fire.
5. Know your target and what lays between and beyond.
LBTB was what helped me recall them, not like it was a serious task to remember them as it became common sense in daily handling practice but recalling them verbally wasn’t something I had to do daily… Loaded, Barrel, Trigger, Backdrop.
it’s too bad not everyone has these common sense.
US needs gun safety laws, like Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, and many other countries.
unless you have a sig p320 xcarry that goes off in your holster by it’s self and shoots you in the hip. 🙂
Daaamn ditch the SOF guy keep Amber!
Great job with Firearm safety and training
Or, No. 2. Keep muzzle pointed in safe direction (muzzle discipline). Add Rule for minors: Contact an adult immediately. My experience with my kids and grandkids has been exactly what Amber described at end of video. They’ve even taught other kids Firearm Safety with their toy guns!! Make a game out of practicing muzzle discipline and finger off trigger, etc. using toy firearms. Should be taught in every school in the country beginning in grade school. I mean, if safety is really the goal.
great that he teaches his daughter firearm skills
Thank you so much for sharing us, Sir.
Enjoy the rest of your day, Sir.
Excellent point about children!
Great video for all firearms enthusiasts ! Thank you!
Excellent instruction! Especially, for the roughly 8 million new gun owners in America. But, these aren’t only for new shooters, they are for all shooters, all the time. And, they aren’t just for firearms. They’re also for pellet and BB guns, bows and arrows, crossbows, and sling shots. Thank you, and keep up the good work.
remember kids, the first rule of firearm safety is have fun 😀
Rule number 4… Actually you need to know what’s between you, the target and beyond the target.
Every person should be taught gun safety from birth no matter if there are firearms in the home or not. Good video, now go take care of that flesh wound. 😎 LOL!
Damn did Mike nip his finger in the
This is very good video for those who are beginners of firearms because safety is priority
Rule #1. Don’t comply with any tyrannical gun laws. Rule#2 always keep one in the pipe….
Good stuff. We all need constant reminders
Good vid. Did Mike get a Garand pointer finger there at the end lol?
One of the beauties of the rules is that there are only four of them, and you have to break at least two of them to have something unintended happen.
Rule # 5 Put a bandaid on that booboo 😛
I would add when picking up that gun that is on the bench, table, coming up on it for the first time, and you didn’t put it there. I’m going to activate the magazine, (clip) release first, then rack the slide back…. or you could be racking a round in the chamber 😊
100 percent, keeping that in mind there are a few caveats. I always see people get butthurt about folks doing certain things like visually inspecting from the muzzle end. Once proven 100 percent safe it is actually common practice and taught here in Canada to visually check the barrel to make sure you don’t have an obstruction prior to loading up and going shooting or performing this check if you have any suspicion of having mud, snow, a bullet, etc. lodged in the barrel.
great video !
