Just … just don’t do this.
[A jackass] and his wife were recovering after he accidentally shot himself and her during a firearms safety class. [The jackass] shot himself in the hand with a .45-caliber handgun. The bullet also struck his wife … in the leg as she was sitting beside him.
The incident occurred … during a firearms safety class at a residence. The instructor … told police he’d left the room and then heard a shot. [The jackass] says the shooting was a “stupid accident.”
Stupid — every instructor’s nightmare.
I don’t allow students to bring their guns into the room until after the safety lesson and handling exercise.
I also begin my introduction with, “If you have any ammo in this room, take it out to your car, now. If I find any ammo in this room after the break, I will shove it up your butt as I throw you out.”
Heart-stopping thought: I sure hope that wasn’t the instructor’s gun.
Short lesson BTF (oh, now who didn’t see that comin’?):
