    Attitude

    Unless you have the right attitude, you have no business buying a gun. Learn what is important as a person, a community citizen and a defender of freedom. Plan on taking some gun preparation classes at your local police station, go to a shooting range for pre shooters or consult with a gun shop owner who will guide you to the right people to put your mind in order before you purchase a gun. Once the trigger is pulled someone's life might be severely altered or they might no longer be living. Prepare your attitude in the many ways that gun owners will direct you.

    Causes to Fire Your Gun

    Get to know the reasons why you would fire your gun. Realize if you have a solid reason to be contemplating a gun purchase, you need to recognize the causes that would make you fire your gun at anyone or anything. Read concealed carry articles from those who have used their weapon for good and not evil purposes. Determine for yourself if those circumstances would be ones that would prompt you to shoot a gun when you buy one, before you choose your firearm. Attend survival meetings and talk to gun owners about their gun shooting history. Put yourself in several proposed altercations and make; out loud or silent judgments.

    Plan Your Life With a Gun

    When a gun is in the house at anytime a plan should be part of the gun owners responsibility. This includes selecting a password. All the members of the family should be aware of and anyone who might have a key to the home or other person who might ever come in the house without prior notice or invitation. This is vital so an innocent person does not get shot as an intruder. A person will yell this word out when they come into the house unexpected. Discuss this with all people and explain the importance of that code to be called out when they enter the home at anytime. Do not change the password unless all people are notified.

    Practice and Exercise How You Are With Guns

    Don't use a gun in this exercise. This is an excellent one to discover many things about shooting and circumstances that could arise when you become a gun owner. The purpose of this exercise is to train to learn when to pull the trigger of your gun. This will help you remain steady when you fire. Lie on your back and breathe very deep breaths. While you are paying attention to the pulse or heartbeat as those breaths are taken you will notice you move the least between heartbeats. It will be at the bottom of your breath that you will observe this. Pretend you have a gun in your hand. Now, pretend to pull the trigger of the gun you don't have, but are pretending to have in your hand when you have your breaths at that correct time. Practice this often to gain the comfort of that exercise. Know too that you should never death grip a gun or weapon since this veers away from being accurate.

    Choosing a Weapon to Buy

    If you are a new person around guns, get comfortable with many people as they talk about their experiences with their weapons. Find out how they got familiar with their gun. Introduce yourself to pictures of guns, go to gun shows with men and women who know guns and gain confidence around weapons. Touch the guns and see how they feel in your hand. Know where you will be keeping your gun when you become an owner. Go to a shooting range with a person who will allow you to be on the side lines as they target shoot. Join a 4H group as a coach's assistant to see the body language of young people learning gun skills. Ask gun shop owners what gun would suit your needs. Consult with friends and shoot as many guns as possible to get the feel of many weapons before you buy your gun.

    Every gun owner should take a gun safety class and also a shooting course :) Great list!

    There is a great deal of responsibility required when owning and using a gun. Great educational list.

    As much as I think everyone should own a gun to protect themselves, I think it is as equally important to have the right skills and feel comfortable. Nice article! Well written.
