My wife and I took our CCW class this past weekend. It was lots of fun and very informative. We are new to guns and have only been shooting 4-5 times total. We shot as well as anyone there and better than many. There was one guy that stated right up front that he had never held a gun before and the class was/is designed to teach at that level...no problems...right? I gotta tell you. The thought of this guy carrying a gun scares me. One of those nervous types...talks fast, moves jumpy, skittish, like way too much coffee and cigarettes. I understand being nervous but his hands shook like Michael J Fox's. 2 hours of range time. The range is small and indoors but open. No stalls. There is room for 3 shooters at a time with small banquet type tables in front of each shooter. We start, sitting, with .22's using cheap gun stands made of wood. Load 1, shoot, make safe. Repeat. Loud long whistle means STOP and put down the gun. 2 short whistles mean fire. No problems. Scary guy is NOT in my group and everyone NOT shooting is watching from a room behind us with an open door and windows. They are not in the actual range. After warming up with the .22's (sitting, standing, single shot, multiple shot) The range officers move downfire, into the range, to change our targets. Scary guy comes into the range, walks up to the tables and picks up one of the pistols. One of the officers reprimanded him....never touch one of the weapons with someone downrange. His turn to shoot. My god...is he shaking a martini? I am actually uneasy with a loaded gun in his hand and my wife 2 spots over. The range officers give him all the guidance they can. At one point the sequence is...load 6, fire 2, hold in low-ready position, fire 2 more, hold in low-ready, fire 2, make safe. OK...fire on his command of 2 short whistles....Is the line ready? BANG! Scary guys gun goes off. Holy Crap! No whistle. Range officer barks out a long hard whistle...all guns down. Scary guy is still holding his but at least he knows he did something wrong. His head is hanging down like a dog that crapped on the carpet. Next is the bigger, qualifying, guns. He is shooting a revolver (borrowed) and the range officer is standing on top of this guy now. He is supposed to shoot single action, double, double etc... Eventually he understands and they help him get on target and even though he never stops shaking he does pass the class. Now I'm shaking!!! If I ever saw this guy with a gun in his hand I would leave the range. I understand that he was nervous...I was nervous... but you need to do EXACTLY what the range officers say when they say it.
