Wow. The guy behind the counter was clueless as what to do at first. He needs some training in how to better respond.

Glad I wasn't the only one to notice that as well.

The guy at the counter is also responsible in my opinion. I think most of the shops and ranges in Texas require that all personal firearms be cased or holstered. He should have been watching what the guy was doing instead of gabbing with other customers. The short attention span of people these days is almost comical.
To what short attention span do you refer? You say he should have been paying attention to that guy instead of "gabbing with customers! What the heck do you think his job involves if not attending to customers? The guy behind the counter was never dealing with the moron (if this was for real and not a set-up for the cameras) who was handling the gun. Thus, his attention seemed to be on the customers to the moron's left and never seemed to waver - it seemed rather attentive to those customers. Maybe he should have seen the moron but maybe not. It would be nice if you could see everything going on around you but from what I saw in that video, the guy behind the counter had his attention on a few customers on the other side of the counter and I see no reason to call it a short attention span. Maybe he was overly attentive to them and thus did not see the other guy (the moron) handling the gun but he seemingly did not have a short attention span relative to the customers with whom he was dealing. Whatever, the guy handling it (the moron), who discharged it, is the ONLY one responsible for having done so. Responsibility for not seeing him handling it, I am not too sure you can blame that on the guy behind the counter although I would have given him brownie points had he seen it.

The responsibility of anyone working in a gun shop or shooting range is not only to sell guns or range time but to watch what people are doing anytime they have a weapon out. That guy was clearly struggling with that weapon and the employee was right there, this appears to have been going on even before the video started. He's even pointing the weapon below the counter. How could you not notice that? I'm not sure where this happened but at the ranges and shops I visit it's clearly stated that all weapons must be in a case and not removed unless on the range or authorized. The employee should have seen what was going on and helped the guy, he was right there. Hell, the employee was nearly in front of the muzzle when it went off! The priority should be on safety, put the conversation with the other customers on hold and check the guy struggling with the weapon. Is that not common sense? Anyone should be able to carry on a conversation and still maintain command and control of things going on around them. If they can't then they don't need to be working around firearms or any other dangerous activity.

Well then. What is it?

Appears to be a Glock to me.
Mr.ND’er sure looked to be fumbling around trying to do the Glock take down thing. Everybody knows ND’s never ever occur when idiots do that.
