When he was racking the slide to chamber a round I bet his finger was on the trigger. That's my guess anyway.
Keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction...How many time have we heard that? Sounds like he broke one of the key safety rules. I am glad to hear he'll live (and hopefully learn), and more importantly, that the round did not hit someboyd else.
