The military has some astoundingly bad gun legends that seem to perpetuate themselves over and over again. After 30 + years of wearing a uniform, every time I think I've heard it all, something else crawls out of someones ignorant imagination.

FWIW, if you follow COL Cooper's four rules, you'll be good to go. I did see them posted at FT Benning and in Iraq, so they are in the .mil system somewhere.

Quote:
RULE I: ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
RULE II: NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY
RULE III: KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
RULE IV: BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND WHATS BEYOND IT
