GLOCK Launches Annual Safety Pledge – Join the #FollowTheFour Movement

SMYRNA, GA. – -(Ammoland.com)-GLOCK, Inc. continues to spread the message about firearm safety with the annual GLOCK Safety Pledge through the month of June.

Over the past four years, more than 50,000 people have taken the pledge to practice the four rules of firearm safety through #FollowTheFour. GLOCK is asking responsible gun owners to join the movement to help spread awareness of firearm safety but this year, it is more than a pledge, it is about purpose.

Participants and partners are encouraged to take a moment to think about why you carry a gun and believe in your second amendment rights. This year’s pledge is about more than following the four rules of firearm safety. It is also about what you do it for. Tell the world why you #FollowTheFour by sharing what you are “four” on social media.

GLOCK actively works year-round to promote firearm safety across the United States and proudly joins a community of law enforcement, community leaders, businesses and the firearms industry to raise public awareness about reducing firearm incidents.

“We believe that the first and most important step to being a responsible gun owner is knowing how to handle and store your firearm safely” says GLOCK Vice President Josh Dorsey. “And as a firearms manufacturer and a leader in the industry, it is GLOCK’s first and foremost responsibility to teach and promote firearms safety.”

GLOCK is providing new and creative ways for fans to show their support by sharing what they are “four” through a free digital download kit available at us.GLOCK.com/SafetyPledge.

    1. Be proactive, make the pledge include “I will not use my gun in anger”, “I will not use my gun when I feel I have been wronged” Make it personal “I” This needs to be signed by all gun owners every year, keep it on the mind of those few folks who engage in senseless acts.

    2. Ok WTF is the four as presented by Glock? A brief listing of the Four would have been informative. I was taught
      1. Never load a weapon until you intend to use it
      2. Always keep it pointed in a safe direction.
      3. Always be sure of your target, it’s surroundings and beyond.
      4. The most important NEVER place your finger on the trigger until ready to shoot. Please refer to point # 3 above.
      There are numerous other safety rules such as being sure that the ammo you are using is safe and of the correct caliber. Don’tshoot at rocks, into the water or into the air etc.
      But the four above are the main safety reminders for supervised beginners.

      1. Thats very simulator to the safety rules we apply in the Swedish Armed Forces with only one difference
        That’s point 1. Point 2-4 is the same.
        As point 1 we apply “always treat and handle a weapon as if it’s loaded”
