This was shamelessly stolen from here. It is however important enough to warrant posting elsewhere. It's a very strange thing to me that more people don't know these basic rules. Or don't know anything at all about guns in general.
The Four Rules of Firearms Handling
by Jeff Cooper
ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED
The only exception to this occurs when you have a firearm in your hands and you have personally unloaded it for checking. As soon as you put it down, Rule 1 applies again.
NEVER LET THE MUZZLE COVER ANYTHING YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO DESTROY
You may not wish to destroy it, but you must be clear in your mind that you are quite ready to if you let that muzzle cover the target. To allow a firearm to point at another human being is a deadly threat, and should always be treated as such.
KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET
This we call the Golden Rule because its violation is responsible for about 80 percent of the firearms disasters we read about.
BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND WHAT IS BEYOND IT
You never shoot at anything until you have positively identified it. You never fire at a shadow, or a sound, or a suspected presence. You shoot only when you know absolutely what you are shooting at and what is beyond it.
Much like typo squatters the low life scum that makes its living posting comment spam are truly loathsome. With that said, anonymous comments have been turned off because of them. Of course, it helps that I've never gotten a real anonymous comment. At this point there doesn't seem to be any real loss turning them off.
If you previously had an album on this page, sorry it got nuked during the upgrade. You may re-create it at this time if you wish.
Thanks to AlohaXFire of CrossfireForum.org, I now have a collection of Crossfire Advertisements to share. You can find them below. If anyone has copies of the first set of ads that ran, I'd appreciate it.
Sorry for the Windows Media File, I'll get it converted to a proper format and reposted soon.
If anyone has any of the other Crossfire ads, please leave a comment and we can arrange to get them up.
Welcome to all Crossfire owners! I'm glad that everyone is getting good use out of the service manual. I want to again thank the people who posted it in the first place. I only reposted it after all.
On such a note, I am wondering if there would be interest in a web site dedicated to Mods and after market parts for the Crossfire? I know there is a section on the forum for those kinds of things; however I was thinking of something a bit more specialized. Dealing only with Mods and part recommendations. Such as, what is the best head unit for the sound system? What internal and external appearance mods are the best, and recommended? A one stop shop for Crossfire mods. That sort of thing. Thoughts? Leave some comments.
For all you Crossfire owners out there, here is the service manual for our favorite car.
