Default Shooting in a safety class . . .

Here is the link to the article.
http://www.abc27.com/story/17666779/va-couple-accidentally-shot-at-gun-safety-class

I wonder what the conversation was when the instructor stepped out of the room . . . Hey honey, did you get the 4 basic safety rules, I was not paying attention. Oh well, watch what I can do with my .45!

No link, and stop on by the intro section and tell us about yourself when you get a chance.

The link worked for me. This instructor should be stripped of his license and prosecuted for negligence. The man and his wife shouldn't have been touching the gun with the instructor out of the room. I wonder if the instructor even gave the order to step away from the line.

Wow another case where common sense is not a common virtue.

Apparently this occured NOT at a firing session, but during classroom instruction.

Yep and all of the instructors I know don't allow loaded firearms in a "class room" setting.

Well in that case standard procedure would dictate no loaded firearms. This whole thing is pure negligence on the instructors part.
