    Nice to know the trainer had a strong sense of safety.

    Often times it is wise to beware of “instructors”.

    Some of them are quite....umm....instructive.

    I wouldn't trust the head engineer at any gun company if I haven't personally shot w/ them. I don't care what your credentials are. I can show you neurosurgery hacks & rocket scientists that crashed 2 space shuttles.

    Trial and error is one of the most effective ways of learning but also one of the least efficient ways! :green:

    The injured student is a county employee, but not a cop. The instructor who shot him is a civilian employee of the range. Neither the instructor nor the victim are cops. Pretty fricking stupid situation, no matter how or who.

    Are you saying civilians should not be allowed to have access to dangerous weapons? I consider all my guns dangerous and I'm just a civilian.
