There was a long time LEO trainer that had an accident in a training session and accidentally shot and killed an officer. He had an accident; a momentary lapse of focus; it happens. But there was a totally different attitude of "gunners" toward him. We seemed to feel his pain, anguish, and hurt.JT said:Depends on his attitude. Is he still going to be making statements like "I'm the only one in this room professional enough that I know of to carry this Glock 40." That’s what set me off. The arrogance. Not only arrogance in his abilities, but an apparent biased against non-LEO gun owners.
So your saying if your kid was in that class you would be like, thats OK you had a accident lets put it behind us and move on? If thats the case I feel sorry for you. I wouldn't think that much about it if he wasn't surrounded by kids. IMHO he F'ed up badly and should be ridiculed.Tangle said:I wonder what would be best for all, to ridicule this man for the rest of his life for making a mistake or try to help him recover and have a life again?
I hope this is what really happened, other wise he is just a complete doum arse.grnzbra said:...I think this was a setup. Notice how no one except the kids reacted. No one wanted to see if he was hurt. And it's just too convenient for it to happen right after he says he's the only one in the room qualified to handle it.
I think that what went wrong is he forgot that blanks fire wadding and he didn't take care not to get hit with it.
