Firearm safety rule number two – always keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to shoot. Movies and TV have made people believe that the natural place for your finger is on the trigger. They are very wrong. Your finger belongs on the frame of your firearm.

You run into your bedroom, grab your gun and you take cover behind the bed with the gun pointed at the door. When do you put your finger on that trigger? Only when the attacker enters the room and you’re ready to shoot.

Not a moment sooner. Every time you pick up your firearm, make sure your finger is stuck to the slide. It will take you a little bit of time to get used to this but you must practice. Every time you pick up your firearm, look to see where your finger is resting. If it’s near the trigger, set the firearm down and try it again.
