10 Deadly Handgun Mistakes


  1. Never hold a handgun with your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot.
  2. Avoid gripping the handgun with just your fingertips or loosely holding it, as it can lead to a loss of control.
  3. Do not place your hand in front of the muzzle or in line with the slide or cylinder when handling or inspecting the handgun.
  4. Avoid holding the handgun with your non-dominant hand too close to or in front of the muzzle, as it can be dangerous if the firearm discharges unexpectedly.
  5. Never use excessive force or a tight grip on the handgun, as it can affect your accuracy and may lead to jerking the trigger unintentionally.
  6. Avoid placing your finger inside the trigger guard unless you are ready to shoot, as this can result in an accidental discharge.
  7. Do not hold the handgun sideways or in any unconventional grip, as it compromises control and can lead to inaccurate shots.
  8. Avoid holding the handgun with your thumb resting on the slide or cylinder, as it can interfere with the proper functioning of the firearm.
  9. Do not hold the handgun with your supporting hand too high or too low on the grip, as it may affect your ability to control recoil and aim accurately.
  10. Avoid holding the handgun with your hand directly in front of the ejection port, as hot brass can be ejected and cause burns or distractions.
