Gun safety is never more important than inside your own home.

Even if you don’t own a firearm and have no plans to buy one, family members and friends may have guns in their homes that you might visit. Despite plans to never use a gun, it’s always a good idea to learn what to do if you encounter a firearm in order to stay safe.

The NRA has taught more than 29 million American youth what to do if they find a unsecured gun through the Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program, adults should also know how to properly handle a gun, load and unload it, perform basic maintenance, and safely store it so unauthorized persons can’t access it.

NRA’s Home Firearm Safety Course is the leading resource to provide safe gun handling and storage fundamentals, and is the perfect education for gun and non-gun owners. The course requires no time on the range, and can be accomplished in as little as four hours.
