The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has a variety of gun safety literature packets and all come highly recommended. There is one, though, that you can find online. Take use of this easy access and read up on how to keep your gun safe. Yes, a lot of it has to do with hunting, however that does not matter. All safety tips apply to any gun owner.
Also, if you have children or are planning to have kids, you must check out the NSSF’s Project ChildSafe. This program comes with a kit to ensure your firearms are safe around your young ones; as well as advice straight from law enforcement on how to prevent any incidents that may occur.
