    Well, this firearm safety instructor forgot some of 'em.

    At least nobody was injured by the "unloaded" 1911.

    1 Keep weapon pointed down range at ALL times.
    2 Keep finger away from trigger.
    3 Never point gun at anything you don't mean to kill or destroy.
    4 If Range closes for ANY reason, drop mag, clear chamber, lock slide back if so equipped. Step back from weapon.

    Mistakes happen. Although embarrassed, he should be quite thankful none of the kids were hurt. That would be too much of a burden to carry for the rest of your life.

    I know the question was rhetorical, but with my sig block, I have to respond.

    Interesting story. Even though this is not one of the 4 rules, one would think that he should check the gun before taking it to a class to teach with.
    I don't know the man so I can't comment on his firearm ethics and also can't comment on whether him retireing was warranted . But Im sure that felt bad after that happened and it may have contributed to his decision.

    Glad that noone was hurt.
    EDIT: Checking the gun to see if it is loaded is one of the 4 rules..
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

    Different to the 4 I was taught.

    1. Always treat a firearm as loaded.
    2. Keep finger off trigger until ready to fire.
    3. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
    4. Know your target and what is beyond it.
