    Sheesh! I hope that's not correct and the instructor "thought" the gun was unloaded. There is no such thing as an unloaded gun, till you check it yourself, which is the first thing you do whenever you touch a firearm.

    I often question the intelligence of some instructors.

    An ND is almost always from an unloaded firearm.

    Even my 5 year old knows that you visually and physically verify a firearm is empty and NEVER take anyone's word for it. He even knows nit to take MY word for it. That boy makes me proud!

    If anyone who skips the lesson of firearm safety in his class should lose his liscence. People trust you to teach them how to handle a firearm and you don't have the snap to check a chamber? I guess the phrase that "you can't fix stupid" rings true again. At the very least he should lose his instructor's liscence. My instructor checked the chamber, of the same weapon, several times. We all knew that it wasn't loaded but he had gun safety drilled into him and was trying to drill it into us.

    I am glad it was only a 38, a real gun would have really hurt him.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.

    There are rules to running a class. When your in the class room. NO AMMO, NO AMMO. Let me say it again NO LIVE AMMO. The arrogance of some people thinking they are above something stupid happening is beyond belief. His complacency should cost him his certs....
    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    Things happen. That's why as best I can, I try and make it a point to never become complacent. Glad he's going to be OK.

    There are so very many supposed instructors out there who, truth be known, probably shouldn't be handling a firearm themselves, let alone masquerading as an instructor for others. Very irritating.

    That's not going to help Mr. Dunlap's next re-election bid.

    Just because someone calls themselves an "Instructor", has the title of "Instructor" or has a certificate proclaiming them an "NRA or NSSF, Certified Instructor" does not mean that someone is a "Qualified Instructor."

    The article says the man was shot by the instructor, they name the instructor then at the end of the article there's

    According to a sheriff’s report, the person holding the gun believed it was unloaded when it went off. Police took a .357 five-shot Ruger handgun, four .38 special rounds and one spent .38 special round.
    .. wonder why they didn't name him there? It almost seems as if there's some uncertainty or maybe I'm just nit-picking.

    I know what you mean blitz. It's kinda like saying, "Now I'm not gonna mention 40Bob's name, but I think someone was tryin' to stir the pot up there."
