    Wow. I'm pretty sure one of the rules of gun safety is to make sure the front is pointed away from yourself as well as anything else you want to not die (or shot in the leg).

    Absolutely. One of the four foundational rules of gun safety. If the four rules are being followed negligence like this cannot and will not happen. It sounds like he was breaking another rule of gun safety as well - finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot. This kind of negligence usually happens when someone has their finger on the trigger as they engage the slide, thus loading a bullet into the chamber. The finger being on the trigger fires it almost immediately. I'm not absolutely certain that's how it happened but I'd bet on it. :scowl: :rollno:

    Yeah, all that is what I learned, too. Perhaps the guy might want to consider a career change. ;)

    -those are the two I remeber best, had a class once. I was a good shot with the 9mm and OK with the .38 but could not hit anything with the .45. -not really sure why, but maybe it had something to do with recoil.

    Not only that, but his career is a Coroner from the Title of the Article. I dont think this was a "class", just happened to be showing some folks, maybe that were about to get on his boat with loaded guns, how to be safe lol.
