NRA, A Girl and A Gun Survey ​
In alignment with retailers’ sales, A follow-up survey of new first-time gun owners asked specifically what spurred them into seeking firearms training. Results showed:

  14% Riots/fear of mobs and civil unrest
  12% Upcoming elections/concern of bans
  12% Urged by family member/friend
  8% Just learned about training opportunities
  8% New rearm in household
  8% Lack of law enforcement resources
  7% Pandemic/uncertainty of access to essentials
  7% Fear of targeted violence/discrimination
  7% Rising unemployment/fear of crime
  6% Recent safety/crime experience
  4% Quarantine boredom/try something fun
  3% Ammo shortage/concern of waiting
  3% Stimulus check provided opportunity

The AG & AG survey (8/2020) results further proved that women are not only purchasing firearms, but they are investing in formal training as well. The survey verified that personal protection is the primary reason why women are seeking firearms training, and went further to enumerate the specific reasons, including civil unrest and the fear of bans after upcoming elections.

ALWAYS Keep The Gun Pointed In A Safe Direction
This is the primary rule of gun safety. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

ALWAYS Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger Until Ready To Shoot

When holding a gun, rest your finger alongside the frame and outside the trigger guard. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

ALWAYS Keep The Gun Unloaded Until Ready To Use

If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
