Alright, as promised, here’s the second part of the safety brief! If you haven’t listened to the first part, I recommend listening to Episode 003 here first.
We finish up by talking about some safety best practices, including when and how to make a weapon safe. Next up is mechanical safeties – the why, the when, and the how of using them with a few popular firearm models like M4/AR-15, the AK, the M9 Beretta, the 1911-style, and the classic cross-bolt style safety.
The final topic deals with what parts of the safety rules change when you go from a training range to the real world – whether that’s on a mission, on patrol, or as an armed citizen. Here’s a clue – they stay mostly the same, but the definition of a “safe direction” becomes a lot more of a gray area without a nice dirt berm to aim into.
