Handling guns is serious business. Whether you’re a professional using guns on a regular basis or a casual hobbyist using guns for leisure, you should never skimp on safety when handling firearms. Whatever you do, don’t be like this guy in the footage below. Like seriously!
In this video, two men can be seen in a firing range. One man is presumably the gun instructor or a friend while the other could be a student. But one thing’s for sure, the second guy is a casual gun user.
Besides, no professional could be as dumb as to do what he did.
He checks the gun, turns it this and that, and does the stupidest thing one could do while holding a firearm – he points the pistol AT HIS HAND. He may have been checking if the gun is working or not, but there’s no reason at all to point it at his hand.
What if it accidentally shoots, right? Well that’s exactly what happened here.
I can only imagine the agony the man was in with a shot-up hand.
Watch here and see for yourself:
You can also say that the other guy can be blamed for the accident as well. He just stood there watching his companion point the pistol at his hand. Any sensible gun user would have advised against it. He had to witness his companion shoot his own hand, which is as stupid as it can get.
Gun Safety 101: Always remember the basic rules:
- Assume that all guns are always loaded
- Never point a gun at anything that you do not want to shoot
- Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot
- Know your target
- Maintain your gun at minimum level of readiness
If you can’t be bothered to observe these rules each and everytime you hold a gun, you have no business handling firearms at all.
