Never Shoot into the Ground

It’s interesting to see how many people think that shooting into the ground is safe.  But it isn’t.  Bullets can go deep into the soil.  Since rocks and other hard objects can exist beneath the surface of the soil, you can potentially hit such an object and find your bullet ricocheting off to hit an unintended target.

Not only do the guys  in this video not understand the potential danger of shooting into the soil, but they also failed to instruct this girl on muzzle control and not pointing the firearm at anything she doesn’t intend to shoot.

In our Minnesota Permit to Carry and other firearm courses, we focus on firearm safety, ensuring that you know how to always handle a firearm safely.

Never, never, never, never, never look down the barrel of a firearm that is loaded or experiencing a hang-fire or for any other reason.  Just don’t do it.  This is one of the most unsafe and unwise things you can do.
