    I'd narrow it down to two safety rules.

    1. Keep the muzzle pointed at something you don't mind putting a hole in.
    2. Keep you finger off the trigger until you're gonna put a hole in something.

    You follow that, everyone goes home with the proper amount of holes.

    Thanks for bumping this for forum newbies like me. This is a great read! Follow Cooper's Law while taking Murphy's Law into consideration and nothing very tragic can happen.

    Jeff Cooper wrote 4 rules.
    He was a man and recognized that people sometimes screw up
    If you screw up 1 rule out of 4 you may be still safe
    If you screw up 1 rule out of 2 you could be in deep trouble

    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 your sights are on the target!
    4. Always be sure of your target!
