Rules 2 And 4, and the .22LR

Here is another video from IraqVeteran8888, who recently showed us just how far you have to go to destroy a Hi-Point pistol. (He had to turn it into a pipe bomb in order to make the barrel fail.)

In this video, he explores the lethality of the humble .22 LR round.  Take the time to watch this one, and give some serious thought to why the basic gun safety rules are so important.

Firearm Safety Rules:
1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
4. Be sure of your target and what lies beyond it.

 At a quarter mile, the .22 is still quite capable of killing.  Pay attention to that muzzle, and don't let one loose if you don't know where that bullet is going to stop.
