Field stripping of a Ruger Mk III Target pistol (with metal lower receiver). I've owned this pistol for about two years and I love it, although disassembly and reassembly can be a pain without instructions to follow.

A firearm is a tool and needs to be in the control of a person in order to operate properly. Firearms are built and designed to kill living things. If you have a firearm in your hands then you are in control of a tool that was made specifically for the purpose of killing, and that places a great deal of legal and moral responsibility on your shoulders, so act accordingly. Firearms are dangerous and should always be handled with the respect due to an object that can easily kill or permanently disable the user or someone else. If you are unfamiliar with the operation of a particular firearm then consult a professional who is, or the manufacturer's instructions in the owner's manual. If you wish to practice handling a firearm, then do so with clearly marked dummy rounds or no ammunition at all, while pointing the firearm in a safe direction. Bullets are capable of penetrating most materials used in the construction of homes and businesses as well as most parts of automobiles, this should be taken into account when handling or shooting firearms. What bullets will not penetrate they may ricochet off of while still retaining enough energy to inflict fatal injuries, this should also be taken into account when handling or shooting firearms. Bullets fired into the air are capable of returning to the ground with enough energy to kill anyone they might hit, however unlikely this is; firearms should never be fired into the air and when target shooting should always be fired into a backstop soft and thick enough to safely stop the bullets. If you are not confident you can handle a loaded firearm safely, then you should not be handling a loaded firearm at all. Firearms safety rules should always be observed while in the presence of firearms and while handling firearms, without exception:

1. Treat every weapon as if it is loaded, all the time, even when you know that it is not loaded. Doing this will keep you in the habit of treating firearms with respect and will go a long way towards preventing accidents. Violation of this rule is the most common cause of firearms accidents.
2. Never point your weapon at anything you do not intend to destroy or kill. This includes when you are carrying the weapon (even holstered) and does not just apply to when you are actively shooting the weapon. This is often referred to as "muzzle awareness." Firearms are not toys and even unloaded firearms should never be pointed at other people as a joke, especially since that's usually when the "unloaded" firearm accidentally goes off and kills someone.
3. Keep your weapon on safe until you intend to fire. Your index finger is not a safety, despite what some movies might lead you to believe. Violate this rule and you will most likely end up accidentally shooting your best friend in the head; it has happened before and you are not immune to this kind of mistake.
