I put up a post about gun safety, which is first aspect of a successful hunt.

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction
2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use
4. ALWAYS make sure your barrel is clear of obstructions
5. Utilize your guns safety, know how to use it, but donít rely on it
5. ALWAYS make sure you have approved shot, and shell length for your gun application.

Thatís about all I can think of right now.

Nice share bro!

6. NEVER give your gun to anyone, and if you have to, double check it when it is returned!

There are number of factors, but a very simple one :

At home never keep the Bullets / Cartridges and Gun together. Maintain safe ( for kids) and reachable distance ( for you).

Great tips for the Juniors Virk. Since a lot of accidents happen during gun cleaning I would like to add 7. Before cleaning and field stripping your gun ensure 2-3 times that no round is chambered in

It's strictly recommended that you never try to clean your guns and other weapons in front of your kids. Make sure that the gun is empty and there is not any bullet left in it.

I would rather say that make sure that your mag is out, no bullets check it thrice, check the locks and make sure that no one is around you, Its better to do it in a seperate room.
