Practice does NOT make perfect. Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
Generalizations are (almost) always bad.

Next he loads up again and hands her the gun. She points the gun downrange, crosses her thumbs behind the grip, closes her eyes and pulls the trigger...once. She drops the gun for the good reason that she has just about slashed the web of her left thumb to the bone. The guy couldn't be bothered to show her how to grip the gun safely, not sure he knew how either. I felt bad, cause I could see her grip was wrong, but couldn't get there in time to stop her. Got some paper towels, told her to apply direct pressure, LGS employees suggested she go to ER since the wound was well beyond Bandaids.
My buddy who's been around guns his whole life did that the first time he fired my sigma .40. Wasn't too deep so I could make fun of him lol. He hasn't done it since!

I remember the lesson in gun safety I got from my uncle when he taught me about guns we were looking at .22 rifles for my first gun I was checking it out and not really knowing much I swept the muzzle across his head and stopped he grabbed the barrel yanked the rifle out of my hands and put the butt of it into my chest hard enough to make it hurt and he said number 1 always pay attention to where the muzzle is and will go and 2 always clear the weapons even if it was cleared in front of you since that day I always pay attention to gun safety and taught my kids the same way I trust my kids with guns before most people. I wonder why that is?
