    Keeping your booger hook off the bang switch would made sure this didn't happen.

    "Off target, off trigger." Lucky it was just a 22lr.

    Aren't .22 rounds one of the most lethal rounds because it ricochets in your body so much instead of ripping through?

    I pressed that issue all day yesterday with the children on the fire line. I'm a bit harsh about it too if they mistakigly have the finger in the gaurd off target. Gotta pound the safety into their heads so it becomes natural instinct.

    why the hell was the boy walking around with the pistol unholsered? Finger on the trigger unsafe, walking with it unholstered not much safer, not like he was in Close quarters combat.
