    A question no member here should be asking nor any person who has taken even a basic firearms course of _any_ sort should wonder.

    NRA Gun Safety Rules
    The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:

    1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
    This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

    ...

    When using or storing a gun, always follow these NRA rules:

    * Know your target and what is beyond.
    Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt. Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap. Think first. Shoot second.

    * Know how to use the gun safely.
    ...Nothing can ever replace safe gun handling.

    Source - NRA Gun Safety Rules
    And these are just guides.
    The biggest firearm safety rule of them all though is; 'Use your best judgment'.

    If this course were being taught to specialized personnel toward covering specialized procedures and tactics then I'd buy it.
    But that is not the case as I can see here. It's just a line of poorly managed and structured civilians running what appears to be a basic level static engagement close combat drill.

    I thought you had to commit a crime BEFORE going in front of a firing line...

    "ain't no sense being stupid lessin' ya show it"

    I agree, instructors, range employees, and RSO should all be fired and lose their licenses.

    Unbelievable.

    thats amazingly stupid. get a wireless remote for the camera, put it on a tripod, and stand BEHIND the line, out of harms way.

    sad thing is, to someone, that was a GOOD idea.

    We have an additional rule that is known as the 300 mil rule. Basically, if you can put a fist beside your muzzle, and there is something you shouldnt shoot in that area, it's not safe to shoot. I'd be curious of the shooter on either side had him within that area or not, but I would bet that he was for both, given how close those targets are.

    I have been downrange on a shooting range before, while people were shooting in my direction, however I also had a thick berm between me and the shooters, and was pulling targets. Even then with a situation as safe as it could be, those low ricochets can still get your heart rate up.

    AND they were reloading.......

    Watch again at some of the people reloading and where their guns are pointed!!!

    I don't see anything wrong with the video.

    Ever been to a Hackathorne class?

    Progressive instructors always get flack. Truth be told there are innocent people down range in a gun fight. The world is a 360 degree world.

    Dumb and Dumberer. I would have protested and left the range at first sight of that stupidity.

    I'm not sure I completely understand what you're getting at. It sounds as if you're saying that "downrange drills" are ok for specialized personnel. Who do you have to be to be considered "specialized?" Military? LE?
    Why do civilians not qualify for certain types of training?

    And, referencing the bolded part of your statement above, you don't really know who was participating in the drill. For all any of us know, these people could all be LEO's or military personnel...or dentists...what's it really matter who someone is?

    I'm not saying it is a good idea, but some exhibition shooters do far more dangerous stunts. If the people involved are pros, this is how some things are done. People take many chances to get a good picture.

    With that said, I would be neither the camera man or shooter.

    Kenpo,

    Elaborate further how...exactly?
    And why. What more is there necessary to state?

    As to your second question that should be a no brainer.
    If these were highly trained and specific purpose personnel then _maybe_ I could buy it. If they were using Airsoft or Simunition/Manmarker product.
    These students were not such persons. That too is clear and obvious per watching the students in the video. I don't know who they were but I'm quite sure who they were not.

    Not that any of it negates the fact that 99.9% of the time having a live human being down range of live fire training is poor judgment and reckless and is at a minimum against the first rule of firearm safety, which is also a no brainer and obvious. Even if the camera guy is completely willing and comfortable with doing so.
